I've been dual booting XP and a Linux distro using Grub. I want to return this particular laptop to XP only but I know from previous experience that Grub will survive a format and XP install. I assume I need to renew the MBR. Is this correct and how do I do it (is it really as simple as mbr/renew)?

At the Prompt after starting with XP cd you use the

FIX /MBR

command

I found this link click here about installing Recovery Console very helpful.
