LXer: How safely uninstall Linux when Dual boot installed with Windows XP?

Published at LXer:

When asked to most of the users “How will you uninstall Linux when it is Dual Boot installed with Windows XP?” The common answers we got was “Start windows XP and format Linux Partition”. Well they were half correct, you do have to format the Linux partition but what about the grub loader? The grub loader will still be showing you the option to boot Linux during the start up and by mistake if anybody goes for booting Linux, the system will not find any Linux on your machine and it will restart. so what can you do in this situation?

Should be fixmbr first, then delete unwanted partitions.
