Help Me!

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

Re: Help Me!

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?

Re: Help Me!

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?

Re: Help Me!

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

Re: Help Me!

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

Re: Help Me!

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

Re: Help Me!

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.
