Try the following, You need a bootable Windows CD/DVD for this
(1)Set your BIOS setting to boot from CD/DVD ROM first (before the Hard Disk or any other media)
(2)In order to set this priority resart your computer and as the first any information appears on screen start pressing "F2" and "DEL" keys swiftly and alternatively. A new screen appears....
(3)Look for "boot priority" and take the CD/DVD drive on top of the list. You need to experiment this a little because every PC BIOS has a different format to make these settings
(4) Insert your bootable Windows CD/DVD in your computer and boot from it.
(5)You will be asked to Press any key to boot from CD.......
(6)Press any key
(7)The Windows installation screen will appear.
(8)In the setup carefully select delete and select the partition where you want to install Windows.
You should have adequate space for Windows.
(9) Be careful do not touch the partition where the Linux is installed
(10) Once you have deleted the partition carefully Format it or make a Quick format.
(11)After that your Windows installation should start.
The rest is very intuitive......
Good luck!

Uninstall os linux ubuntu 13.10 from my laptop


Are you dual booting? Windows and Ubuntu? What version of Windows? You maybe able to reclaim the space by using the Disk Management (right click "My Computer" select Manage then select Disk Management). In there you will see NTFS for your Windows partitions, and something like Unknown for the linux ones, you can then delete the linux partition and possibly extend your NTFS partition to use the free space (depending on version of windows).
If this is a standalone Ubuntu install, you should be able to just use the installer disk for another OS and boot it to reformat the drive.
good luck!

I have downloaded Ubuntu Linux 12.04 and am running it under wondows xp sp1. How can I delete windows and just run Ubuntu ?


Here is what you need to do:


1. Open 'GParted'. From the menus: System -> Administration -> GParted
2. Right click on the ntfs partition and select 'delete'
3. Right click on this deleted partition and select 'Format to' and select ext3. This should accomplish what you want.


If GParted is not installed, then open a terminal window and type


Code:
sudo apt-get install gparted
And then proceed with steps 1-3 specified above.


PS: Backup any data you need from the WinXP partition before you do this.Alternately, instead of formatting the XP partition to ext3, you could do this:
Using gparted, as described above:
Right click the XP partition and click delete.
Right click the Ubuntu partition and click resize
In the resize dialogue, change the settings to that it is as big as possible.
Click apply changes.


This is riskyer, so BACK UP EVERYTHING!!!!!! I do not take responsibility for lost data.
This however will be closer to "unpartitioning" the drive, what was suggested above will still result in it being split into two partitions, they will just both be linux partitions.

I install a 320Gb HD on my desktop the BIOS recognize the 320 Gb, but when I try to install windows xp it only shows me 137 Gb.


That means you have already partitioned your HDD to Linux. Linux partitions are not recognized from windows XP so, use a bootable partitioner like partition magic to recover your 193GB.
Think this is helpful !

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Wanted better operating system then linux suse on my msi u90!!


Yes you can change to any operating systems at any time. You can change to linux's earlier versions or later versions, or you can change to windows wp/vista/me/98/95. When you buy a computer it comes with an operating system, However you can change it to whichever operating system you want. all you will need to do is purchase whatever operating system you want, it will come with installation disks, pop one in restart your computer and it will walk you threw installing it. ( I have done this with XP & Vista, I am assuming Linux is the same.)

It is a pretty simple process

Create 3 partitions on the HDD (Vista requires 20 GB minimum)

Install XP on 1st, Vista on 2nd, Linux on 3rd

You'll choose the partition to install on during the install process of each OS, you can create the partitions during the XP install

About Linux fedora and XP


Without knowing more about your system, the key rule is to install XP first, then Fedora.
If that doesn't work then it's time to put more partitions on your hard drive, and install the 2 operating systems on different partitions, again, remembering that Windows XP has to be the first installed.
