So I recently got adventurous and decided to try Linux. Long story short something went wrong with the installation and the Grub boot loader got messed up effectively locking me out of both Win 8 and Linux. Luckily I finally figured out how to get into the HP recovery mode and do a reformat and a fresh install of Windows 8. Everything is working great now and I'm over my Linux curiosity (clearly I'm not ready for it!). However I have one final question. Would reformatting in the HP recovery get rid of the partitions created by the Linux installer? I looked in disk management on Win 8 and see what looks like a bunch of partitions to me. Are they supposed to be there or are some of them left over from linux? If so, which ones should I get rid of?
Thank you in advance.
