Formatting Hard Drive


I need to format my hard drive and need to use it for WIN operating systems.

Currently its using 20GB for Linux from total of 60GB. I need to format whole hard drive and need to have all 80GB available for use. Can u guide me how to secure the 20GB area that was used earlier by Linux but now Linux crashed and I need to use it with WIN OS.

Thank you in advance.

Don't worry. The windows installer in all its glory will let you delete all the existing partitions.
