Unhappy Can't boot from USB drive :( - 07-24-2012, 11:37 PM

Hi. I used to have a double partition on my Mini Dell 10v. One with Windows XP SP3 and the other one with Ubuntu 10. I never liked/used Ubuntu so I decided to get rid of it and deleted the part where it was located. Now every time I boot I get this message: "error: no such partition", followed by "Grub rescue".

My Dell came with backup CDs, but being a netbook, I had to make a bootable usb drive out of my rescue CD. This isn't working either. I've already selected USB startup in the BIOS, have tried booting from each of the 3 usb slots, and I get this message:
Missing operating system, blah blah... Exiting PXE Boot ROM.

What am I doing wrong? Plz help
