Uninstall Linux


Hello,
I have Suse 10 and Xp in my laptop at the moment. I'm just wondering how to uninstall Suse10, and only run Xp.

Thanks in advance

Just delete your SuSe partition(s) and if you want to, reformat them as NTFS/FAT32. This can be done from within Windows. Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management.

You'll probably also want to wipe GRUB or LILO: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_tro_ldau.asp

Think

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Most distros aren't too difficult to install - but getting it on there is more difficult than getting it off. Is Suse causing some sort of problem or are you just trying to recover the disk space? If you just leave it there, it won't hurt anything - and you might want to try it out later. Just a suggestion.
