Bit confused about what you mean Re-LoaD. I haven't really spent any

that I don't know about, but I think you mean how do you remove grub 
from the mbr, presumably to reinstate booting into a Windows

In the old Win 9x days you used a DOS boot floppy and did something like:

format /mbr

In the WinXP days you booted to the install CD recovery console did either:




I forget which.

I've not really used Windows since XP, so I'm not sure what you do for
