I have two hard drives:

One is 640 gb, and has windows vista 64-bit on it

The other is 160 gb, and has Ubuntu 9.04 on it

I didn't really want the linux in there all the time, so i took out the linux drive

But now whenever i boot up, it says Grub error 21, which means it can't find the linux disk. How do I remove Grub so I can solo boot vista?

Sorry, it is also a stage 2 error, whatever that means...

Google "uninstalling GRUB".

I'm pretty sure that if you just plug the 160Gb drive back in, your system will boot up just fine. You don't have to use Linux all the time just because it's installed on one of your harddrives. GRUB lets you choose Linux or Windows at boot time.

Your question has to do more with windows then it does using linux since removing grub will still leave you with an un-bootable system.

Any of these links should get your started...
