Im trying to resize my partition or remove my partition of linux. I went into the partition manager and then it said it was for experts so i exited because that is one thing i certainly am not. So i was wondering if anybody can help me or walk me through it. Im not sure if you need a setup CD or anything but i dont have one so try to avoid using one of those. My life will be so much easier if i can resize or remove linux. All help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Well, removing Linux really isn't a Linux question. You need to go to Windows System Management or whatever it is called in Windows and reclaim the partition for Windows. In case this is the partition where GRUB was installed you need to make sure Windows can boot in its own. Run fixmbr or mbrfix or fixboot or whatever it is called in Windows to reinstall Windows MBR. As I said, this is not a Linux question.
Boot up from your XP CD (if you've got it), and when prompted press R for the Recovery Console, then type fixmbr at the prompt. Exit, reboot into XP, open Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Computer Management => Disk Management, and delete the unwanted partitions.
