Unhappy uninstall slax ?


I need to uninstall slax. It is causing my computer to freeze. How do I uninstall slax using windows 7? I am going to try a different distro of linux.

Thanks,
Tennisbum

You could just install the new distro on the partition(s) that hold your slax installation. One stone, two birds.

If that doesn't suit you:

To format/partition drives in Windows7 have a look at this.
To restore your Master Boot Record (in case slax's boot manager is installed on it), you can use fixmbr.

Btw, I'm not a Windows user, and this is not a Windows forum, I hope this helps though :-)

Wrong way around. Fix your MBR first, then delete the Slax partition.
