I had a dual boot setup with Mandrake Linux and Windows 2000 on a backup computer. I put a new motherboard in there so I was going to reformat and just install Windows 2000 since I never used Linux. But now I cannot get rid of the Linux boot selecting screen. And since I already deleted all the partitions and reformatted, I cannot boot into Linux. I have no idea how to get rid of this and just boot into Windows 2000. Any ideas? Thanks.

put in the win 2000 disk go into recovery and type fixmbr

just delete the MBR
start into dos prompt
and type "fdisk /mbr" without the ("")

then put in the win2000 cd, make sure you are booting from CD (in bios)

i hope this will help you out
let me know if you have any problems.
