I have a HD from a previous distro that had lilo as boot loader. It has been foramtted with cfdisk so it has no data on it. I want to use it as sdb1 in another linus box. When i plugged it into my regular linux machine to check it out, it mounted fine as sdb1, but on boot up I got a 1st lilo boot screen that flashed for just a second or so, the screen went blank and then a second lilo boot screen came up and I booted normal. I can't see this as a problem, but it is irritating when it flashes up on boot up. The wife is patient, but I don't want her to have to put up with it.
Hopefully someone can tell me how to remove lilo from the mbr in this older HD.
