Dual boot problem with Win7 and Ubuntu
 
I'm only a few months into working with Linux, and am getting used to it slowly. I messed up trying to load Ubuntu 10.04 on a new Gateway (Acer) laptop that has Win7 on it. I need Windoze for a couple commercial applications. Neither will boot w/o a CD. I'm guessing I messed up the load. I would like directions/ideas. I think that since Windoze is such a hog, I should remove Linux and partitions, restore Win7 and try again. Do I need to do something to GRUB as well?

You can still boot and run both os with cd? Meaning 1 at a time.

Yes, either one works if I bypass GRUB (load with either CD for the OS I want to open). Confusing to me.
