Grub overwritten my MBR.
I installed Linux onto a flash drive and every thing works ok except that I have installed the Grub loader on to the MBR.
So now grub loads in and I have to select Vista.
If I don't have the flash drive in I get a grub load error.
How can I fix the MBR, I do not have an installation DVD and teh F8 option doesn't work.
Any help much appreciated.
