Re: Does MX MBR repair erase GRUB?

Appreciate your feedback folks!
Will re-read to have it sock into me a bit more...

In the meantime, adding your suggestion to the MX Boot Repair would surely be a huge bonus to non-geeks like me.

Does MX MBR repair erase GRUB?

Dual boot scenario here...

Say a user dislikes MX (or any other distro) while dual-booting with Windows, can he/she use MX MBR repair to wipe GRUB and just boot back with Windows alone?

Intel or is that Is**el inside?

Re: CERN Accelerating science!

Me thinks that it is more than just a money issue.
