Ent. Linux installaiton space reclaim


Dear all ,


I've partitioned my windows environment and installed Oracle Enterprise linux. now I want to remove the linux installed in my machine. I want to reclaim the space and add it to the
windows environment.is this possible ?..

Meanwhile, what are all the mandatory parition requirements to be selected during installation of Linux ?

Please guide me

Thanks

you can remove the partitions however you see fit under windows. no need for linux to be involved there. if you have a linux bootloader installed run "fdisk /MBR" to replace it with the standard windows boot sector.

And the only mandatory partition is /. everything else is optional.
