Removing Linux from Your System

Although I'd hate to see you go, I'd also hate to see you get trapped in Linux if you don't want to use it! How to most easily get rid of Linux depends on what you want to do:

1 If you want to replace Linux with Windows, just install Windows on the machine. It will overwrite all of Linux, including the boot menu.

1 If you want to remove Linux from a dual boot setup, then boot into your Windows option, access a command prompt, and type fdisk /mbr. This action removes the Linux boot loader. It doesn't erase Linux, but you can then format the Linux drive(s) or partition(s) for Windows.

Windows XP and Xandros users have a special command they can use to remove this distribution. Boot your machine using your XP CD-ROM into the Recovery Console. Change to the Windows directory and then type fixmbr.
