I have a hard drive which was part of a dual drive dual boot system. Windows XP and linux.

However now that I have removed the Linux drive from my computer and no longer have access to it when I try to boot my XP drive I recieve a GRUB Hard Drive Error.

I asume that my MBR is trying to find the second drive and loading properly but I am not sure how to fix it.

Thanks.

Use your WindowsXP CD and load the recovery console, from that you can run the fixmbr command. Reboot and Grub will be gone.
