How to cleanly delete Linux partitions and install XP and multi Linux OS's on them.

Posted 07-01-2010 at 09:50 PM by navneethr

Thanks for your posts. It helped me in getting the solution I wanted. Here is what I finally did...

Deleting the partitions via XP or the 98 bootable CD was not clean and these programs could not cleanly delete the Linux partitions. THe linux partitions have to be deleted via the Linux programs itself.

I used the fedora disk and went into rescue mode. I used the skip option which prevented it from mounting any filesystems and went to...

It is now a lean, mean Linux machine- trying to convince a teenager to make the jump was difficult, and that was mostly because of the whole iTunes thing, but we worked around that by stripping as much as possible from xp so it is merely an Itunes system and very little else on a small partition.
