Before you all start panicing, no im not leaving the way of the penguin
quite the opposite actually
I think im finally ready to have a Dedicated Linux system, I have just bought myself a shiny new 200gig drive so im am giving this 120gig to my brother. Trouble is its Dual booting Suse 8.0 pro, with WinXP Pro and my brother doesn't want any thing to do with linux just yet (you can't change em all huh
) So im going to delete linux from the HDD. To make it simple for him i would like to keep the XP installation in tact, you guys know what a pain the M$ OS is when you have to install it .. then spend 2days updating it and so on, well some of you probably don't
I have searched the forum and have found a couple of usefull solutions, however i have come up with my own
and just wanted clarification from you guys to see if it might work.
only a couple of dead simple tasks
Delete the linux, and linux swap partitions using partition magic (since thats what i created them with)
Restart with the XP boot CD in, and when it gets to the installation bit .. just hit "R" to run recovery, this will change the MBR back to the Default one, dunno what else it changes though.
The reason i thought of using the installation disk is because curently my floppy's on the blink
so i can't boot from floppy and do.
And i would like to say thanks to all you guys, over the past 13 months (ive been prowling, just not posting) you guys have helped me out more than you could know, and turned me into a Now M$ free user
