    i just think that you should put more thought into something before you post it, if you knew linux, you wouldn't have posted that. And you weren't giving him help on how to do it in windows...so why are you posting in this thread?

    Boot up your computer with the XP CD. Then, choose recovery console and enter the command fixmbr

    some said fdisk /mbr only made winxp become unbootable. is it true? But now I am very confused. I am really afraid of winxp unbootable moment. Please give me advice to become my winxp as before I install linux.

    You need to use the recover console for this, if I remember correctly the command is FIXMBR

    Are you trying to get one whole Win partition? Then you shouldn't merge anything. Format them first. I would really recommend SystemRescueCD (www.systemrescuecd.org) based on Gentoo as a graphical hard drive partiton manager..

    If it is possible, I want to give more room for Linux instead of uninstalling it. Because I just finish installation of Linux and I haven't tried it yet and it runs out of space. Now I feel stay away from Linux is .. .. I should fight like a man rite?

    This thread has gotten too bloated with all sorts of off-topic posting and general topic drift.

    Whoever has a specific question should ask a specific question in a new thread.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
