7.6. Uninstalling the Linux Boot Loader

YaST can be used to uninstall the Linux boot loader and restore the MBR to the state prior to the installation of Linux. During the installation, YaST automatically creates a backup copy of the original MBR and restores it on request, overwriting GRUB.

To uninstall GRUB, start the YaST boot loader module (System->Boot Loader Configuration). In the first dialog, select Reset->Restore MBR of Hard Disk and exit the dialog with Finish. In the MBR, GRUB is overwritten with the data of the original MBR.
