Removing Linux


I decided to remove linux as i realized i'm not ready for it yet.

I wanted to know what's the easiest way to remove my Linux OS (SUSE 9.2) and add the 10G from the partition i made for linux back to my Windows OS partition?

Thanks a lot!

Sorry to see you go

PartitionMagic can delete the Linux partition, and append it to whatever Windows partition is closest. That's p'bly the easiest way to go.

(back up that Win partition first, though...)

once you have removed linux you can get rid of the bootloader by popping in your windows cd, going to the rescue console and typing fixmbr, this will overwrite the MBR and just boot straight into windows.

Maybe Suse just wasn't the distro for you. Try some others, most people do until they find one that works the best for them. That's what is great about Linux, freedom
