how do I uninstall suse 9.1


Hi,

I installed suse linux 9.1 on my pc running win xp. I thus have a dual boot now, win xp and suse.

Everything boots fine but I am not happy with suse since it's giving me trouble with my hardware, for e.g. my mouse is not working and my keyboard can't seem to configure correctly.

I would like to uninstall suse but I am not sure about the correct procedure.

Dual boot managar is GRUBS 2

Do I need to uninstall GRUBS first?

How do I uninstall GRUBS?

I figured that if I restore the master boot record to the state before the linux installation, I could delete the linux partitions via xp.

I am not sure that I dare to do a fdisk /mbr since microsoft warns about doing it on systems with more than 4 partitions, I have 5.

And I do apologize if there are already info on this on the forum, I guess I am just to stressed at the moment to do a search.

Many Thanks!

Boot the XP install and select recovery mode then run the fixmbr utility. This will remove grub from the MBR. No need to worry about having more then 4 partitions.
