Rescue and Recovery boots from GRUB


I had GRUB and Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux working nicely.  Then I made the mistake of letting the IBM update installer do what it wants which installed Rescue and Recovery and messed up my MBR.  I managed to reinstall GRUB but now when I select Windows it loads R&R.

Pain in my neck.

What should I do?

Re: Rescue and Recovery boots from GRUB

nothing to worry about all you have to do is either install windows recover console or

pop in the windows xp disc(any one will do)
press r when told during setup
give the admins's password if u have one or simply press enter

sectect the c drive with the number "1"

use this command

say y and enter

that will install the NT bootloader again

later you re-install the grub this should work out for you surely
