Re:What about the boot loader?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 23, 2006 04:21 AM
See, if you remove the Linux partition, grub will no longer boot anymore, since it stores it's files on the linux partition, including it's configuration file, so if you remove that partition, it won't be able to find it's configuration file, and the PC will not boot up.

That's one of the reasons why people historically have created seperate<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/boot partitions.
