If you mean replace Linux with Windows, then your thread title is misleading. Rebooting your computer with a Windows disk in it doesn't have anything to do with linux at all.........unless, your disk is like mine and doesn't recognize a hard disk being present if Grub bootloader is on it. Then you're going to have to take an extra step. More info please, as comprookie2000 has asked.

Yes, but check other posts and you'll see why. This has to be an issue of time.
