How to repair the Master Boot Record in Windows

How to repair the MBR for Windows XP when you screw it up like I did by deleting the Linux partition.

1. Download the Windows Recovery Console ISO.
2. Burn this ISO to a CD (making it bootable) using Nero, Record Now, etc. (Don't just burn the file, actually burn the image)
3. Launch the Windows Recovery Console
4. fixmbr is the command that replaces fdisk /mbr , so run fixmbr

If you need more details, let me know. but this is more for me
