I had a Windows 7 laptop and I recently installed GRUB and SliTaz on it. But the GRUB is not working and I cannot load windows.

What to do? (Except for the recovery disk)

Why doesn't my terminal understand the sudo command

You have a full recovery disk?

GRUB is supposed to take over and give you a choice of which OS to load.

How about uninstalling GRUB and SliTaz?

Without getting into Windows how do I uninstall that?

I think I figured it...

Why aren't you running your linux from the USB or from the DVD?

You restored GRUB?

No, the problem was that it was selecting (hd1,0) instead of (hd0,0) and now I've fixed it.

Sad: Complete wastage of time.

Thank you all

Hi;

So you now have the tiniest linux ever made by man until someone writes teeny weeny linux. The first OS that is under a kilobyte.

But it is not the tiniest. The tiniest is TinyCore

Wintel was caught doing that when they tried. It was a while back.

It was the beginning of the ascendancy of AMD Athlons. Wintel had a number put into the chip so that the machine usage could be traced back to the owner. I have never bought a machine that has a pentium in it since I was unlucky enough to have a pentium 2. Their buddy MicroWeasel, was also caught several times in their products and still persists.
