How to remove a unix boot partition ?

Hi group member,
I'm as new as a newbie can get on Unix, so bear with me .
I just got a task of installing NT on a box that had some sort of unix on it. Once I reboot, i always get a Grub> screen and I dont' know how to get rid of it. Just relying on the nt install parition
don't seem to be able to get rid of it.

I'm a NT,NOVELL, cisco kind of guy. so nothing on UNIX.
thanks all

it really has nothing to do with unix, so don't worry about being newSmilie

you need to check your hard drive to see if it is made by Western Digital (which more than likely it is). If so, there is a diagnostic utility you can get from westerndigital.com that you have to run against the hard drive to remove ALL of the unix stuff. once that is done, you should be able to load NT with no problem. Trust me, I found this out the hard way. Hope this helps.
