I want to remove Unbuntu on a Windows Vista Dual Boot system. I do not know much about Linux but just want to remove it and the GRUB loader that overides Windows Boot manager.
I have searched online and seen lots of solutions, but some seem too complex and some require a windows boot disc which i don't think i have. Thanks in Advance

Connor

The procedure in the link below is about as easy as it gets. If this is too difficult, post back as another member may have a different solution.

Hi

I followed those steps, although I wasn't able to do the resize step as it came up as an error. Now Windows boot manager appears, asking to boot windows or unbuntu (even though it is gone) and my hard drive is far smaller than it is, although is back to no partitions.

Thanks

Edit: Repeated process again and Hard Drive is now nearly at its original size, which I am fine with.
Only problem is how to remove linux from appearing on windows boot manager at startup when linux has been removed, instead of automaticaly booting into windows.
