    I tried removing a failed linux installation by using partition magic. Now I get an error message “Stage 1 Geom Error” when I boot up the pc. Can this problem be fixed? I tried installing the Linux on an old 486 mach, only to find out I was installing the wrong version. I need an earlier version which I’m trying to find. But first I need to fix the current problem and I’m running out of ideas.

      Hi there,

      go into linux FDisk, and check things out there
      if it shows no partitions… that’s cool,
      just boot into ms-dos with an ms-dos floppy, and give the following command : fdisk /mbr
      this will rewrite your Master Boot Record for the new partition table (none if alright), after wich you should be fine.
