Hello - I would like to unistall my version of Linux and go to a dual boot using win7 or 10, along with linux. I am told I have to first uninstall linux,  then reinstall win7, possibly replace that with 10, and then partition my drives and reinstall Linux. If this sequence seems out of whack please let me know. The only reason I am wanting windows back is to run peripherals.

Has this PC only got Linux on it? If so just install Windows like normal it will delete Linux for you.



then reinstall win7, possibly replace that with 10, and then partition my drives and reinstall Linux.

That is correct, Install Windows 7, If you want Windows 10 Upgrade to it when that is all done install Linux along side Windows.


Use this tutorial to install Linux along side Windows 10 in UEFI mode.


Arch Linux .
