Remove Linux and Install Windows 7?

Users who may have installed Linux may find it difficult to install Microsoft Windows afterwards because of how Linux utilizes different partition information than Microsoft Windows, causing errors during the install or first setup of Windows. Below are steps on what the user should do to completely remove Linux from the hard disk drive and install Windows.

  1. Boot from a bootable floppy diskette that contains the fdisk.exe and debug files.
  2. Once at the MS-DOS prompt, you must delete all the partitions using the fdisk command. In some cases you may be unable to delete all the partitions. If this occurs, erase all the HDD information using the debug routine found on our debug page.
  3. Recreate a primary partition using fdisk, or if you are installing Windows 2000 or Windows XP, run the setup and create the partitions through the setup program.
  4. If you are installing Windows 95 or Windows 98, after the partition has been created and set as the active partition, format the partition using the format command.
  5. Finally, for Windows 95 and Windows 98 users, run the setup program for your operating system.

Hi.

So you want to remove Linux and install Windows 7.

Ok you can do this; you need to have bootable Windows 7 DVD to do this.

Actually file types and partitions are different in Linux operating system.  For a example Linux kernel uses the ext2 as a file system.

However first you have to delete the native, swap, and boot partitions.

Then you can install the operating system that you want in to the machine, You only need is bootable CD or DVD.

Here is a detailed guidelines that I found

But it is better to use Linux and use software like VMware to run windows 7 inside the Linux.

That is better.

Thank you.

Hi Jhjuisaha,

To install windows 7 on your computer on which you has Linux, you will just need to format the computer with a windows setup.

Get a CD that has the windows operating system and run the set up on your computer:- To run the set up you just need to restart your computer and choose the option to boot from the CD drive.

When the installation reaches a place where you are required to allocate the partition for the set up, choose the partition that has the Linux, and then choose to format it completely with all its contents.

Windows will then replace Linux.

Hope this helps.
