Remove dual boot install

On a dual boot - XP SP3 and OpenSUSE 11.0

Many months ago I did something in SUSE (at this distance, I don’t remember what) and I get a message “Could not start kdeinit4. Check your installation.”

I wish to remove the boot manager and reclaim the space used by SUSE for XP use.

Can someone point to simple and SAFE instructions to accomplish this?

Thanks for any help you can give.

here is how to: boot with xp cd, you will be asked to install windows, take the rescue program option, after prompting for the adminstrator password (if you have one) if you don’t leave the field blank and press enter, windows will ask your keyboard and which partition to work on, then you will be at the DOS prompt, at that point you type the following:
bootcfg / rebuild
and after issue the following 2 commands in sequence : fixboot fixmbr.
these will rewrite the boot sector making linux no longer accessible.

now you can go back to xp, but… please give linux another try in a near future…

I have used various Linux brands for many years. Novell refused to honor a support commitment so I am switching computers to Kubuntu. This particular computer will be solely XP however.

Roger, thanks for your help. I will give it a try.

step 1. fixmbr
refer to:Fixmbr - Repair Master Boot Record, MBRFix for Windows 2000, XP etc., fdisk /mbr, linux LILO damage MBR.

it does not need a XP disc.
now ,you only have xp left.

step 2.
go to windows xp,disk management—>delete the suse partition.

have a tryyyyyyyyyyyy
