Réf:Re: Help, howto remove lilo from MBR!

A more simple way if you don't have a linux floppy disk is to use the command
fdisk /MBR
after a boot on a Windows floppy disk.

Boot from Debian boot floppy.  Switch to the 2nd console and hit
enter.  Mount your root partition under /mnt as in:

# mount /dev/hdXX -t ext2 /mnt

Change root of your system:

# chroot /mnt

Re-run LILO to recover MBR:

# lilo
