I recently removed Ubuntu from my Asus Eee PC 900 through Windows XP, with a partition manager. I figured formatting the partition, deleting it and merging it back with my main partition would do the trick. Oh, I was so wrong. I was fine, just doing normal tasks inside Windows XP... until it asked me to restart for updates. Sure, no problem. But when I tried to boot back into Windows... GRUB appears with Error 17. I can't get back into Windows. I asked some people on a chat server I'm always on (same one as G2G chat ), and they said get your XP disc, run the recovery console and type 'fixmbr'. The Eee doesn't have an optical drive aaand I don't have an XP disc. Someone on Twitter gave me a tutorial from their site to set up Windows XP Recovery Console on a USB Drive. So I did that. Once I had that all done, I booted into the USB Drive on the Eee and tried fixmbr. Rebooted and still, same problem. I've tried fixboot and bootcfg, trying to set default boot partitions using it, but to no avail. I'm at my wits end. Can anyone help me? I'd really like to use my Eee again.
ANY help would be appreciated.
