How to remove GRUB loader!?
Posted by intenzity513
I am curious as to which version of Microslush you have installed, and having FIXMBR and FIXBOOT solve the issue. The system I encountered this issue on was a MS XP PRO box w/SP2 and all the latest hotfix's installed (including IE updates, natrualy, and hahah, of course almost impossible to avoid Anyway, like I stated before, if it's this combination of OS's (SUSE 9.x, and XP PRO SP2/later) I would love to see someone come forth having had FIXMBR and FIXBOOT solve the MBR corruption issue from a SUSE GRUB boot loader installation/un-installation/failed installation. Unless this test machine I encountered this issue on is "special" per say, I would go as far as saying that you have NO OTHER OPTION other than using FDISK 1.2.1 when its XP PRO SP2 and Grub from SUSE 9.x). I could be wrong, so if you have experienced this issue having meet the following above mentioned OS requirements, and were able to fix it using the MS supplied toolset, please speak up because we want to know what the deal really is with the random intermittent?ness? of such issues, although, 97% chance it will be blamed on a ?un-supported? hardware platform.
I do admire MS software, but one thing that I have noticed throughout the years in supporting, using, developing, and often times enjoying it, is that Windows/MS based apps are the single most intermittent POS available at times. I realize the very broad range of hardware platforms does playa major role in such intermittent"ness" in regards to software/development issues, but now-a-days, in this year of 2005, the hardware platforms we are working with, even for most clones, are almost identical in construction and somewhat regulated and ?standardized?, this obviously due to many years of developer's and engineer's trying to accomplish exactly that, a IBM PC based architecture that runs efficient, with solid performance and reliability, yet somewhat standardized even across multi-corporation/manufacture platforms. This is the #1 reason Macs have 60% less support issues with their OS/Software. Just a thought. Anyways, who likes macs anyway, 5 minutes with a one button mouse, and I will place a large wager in Vegas on the fact that you probably ripped it out of the box and destroyed it in a very understandable and most lilkly enjoyable fit of rage as I did
Anyway, just some thoughts....anyone else
