Getting rid of Linux


Recommended Posts

here's the story. I have 2 hard drives. I have a 120GB Hard Drive with Windows installed on it and a 7GB Hard drive with Ubuntu Linux installed on it.


the thing is, I want to get rid of the 7GB hard drive, but I've heard that i can't since Ubuntu installed GRUB and if i get rid of the 7GB Hard drive, then i won't be able to start up my computer.


I really don't want to resort to reinstalling Windows because i don't have an installation CD and because i have some pretty important files installed.


So, any ways to make the Windows Boot Manager work again?

You want to get rid of grub and have the computer boot straight into windows? Correct?

I've never had to do this(I never dual booted when I tried linux so I just formatted) but I know that GRUB is installed to the MBR of the disc. So there has to be a way to have windows rewrite the MBR.
