I have a computer which has had a previous installation of linux on, and after various attempts to format the harddrive, I cannot get the bios to recognize the windows xp cd as a boot device. Linux has taken over the bios. Can someone give me advice how I can get the computer to boot from the cd so I can get windows back on there. There is currently a grub console which appears now after every boot up. But unfortuntely I am clueless.
I have the dvd set as the boot device.
I have tested the boot dvd on another computer and it works fine
If i select F8 for the boot menu then i get the cent os choice with one option. I am now on the GRUB Command line, not knowing a thing.
