Dual Boot LILO issue seemingly resistant to normal fixes
I will be endlessly thankful if someone can provide me with a solution. My system has two physical harddrives, one with XP Home and the other with Debian; I need to clear the Debian distro from the second harddrive, but I can't seem to shake LILO.
So far I've used fixmbr and fixboot in the Windows recovery console, and used the LILO -u and LILO -U commands in Debian...all to no avail. LILO is not impressed when I erase Debian, and I am then incapable of booting to XP without first reinstalling Debian (and thus fixing LILO).
I don't have much experience with the mbr (or with Linux, for that matter), and am perhaps missing something obvious...but I've been wrestling with it fruitlessly for a couple of days now. Any help is greatly appreciated.
