Select Disk manager
Select the 'unknown partition(s)' on your USB external hard drive and choose 'Delete Partition'
Create new partitions for Windows to use then format them..
If i format the partition directly without fixing the boot list, will i be able to boot directly into windows without a problem or will my computer still look for linux?
Just wondering because I just looked at a file in linux (the boot file recommended earlier in the post) and it looks like its the thing making the computer look for linux in the first place, but i don't know.
Again I am sorry I am a complete noob at fixing this problem myself.
