As you are going to return the whole machine to the store, you may wish to consult the machine manual. It should hold a step by step instruction on how to return the installed software to the state it had when you bought it.
This means there will be some (easy) way of resetting the machine to the state it was in when you bought, Windows 7 only.
Use win7 DVDis there a quick way to remove grub from the mbr
Boot off the windows 7 installation DVD
Proceed to the screen "Windows 7 / Install Now" BUT DO NOT click to install
Select to "Repair your computer"
Select/put the radio button/dot next to "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems" --> Next
Select "command prompt"
enter this command: Bootrec.exe /FixBoot
enter this command: Bootrec.exe /FixMbr
enter this command: exit
Click to Restart
you beat me by a few minutes. Was just going to suggest following this instruction: Windows 7 - MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record. Same approach, just longer and with screenshots.
I am afraid you are right. Therefore pointing them to the recovery CD as you have done is smarter.Trouble is Karl, most people don't have a windows DVD
I am reconsidering installing lmde on my future laptop.
When I close the lid on my current laptop, lmde doesnt go to "sleep", it just try to, the screen becomes black, but it doesnt stop, and reopening the lid do nothing, I have to use the "power button".
Can lmde "use" HD3000 (sandy-bridge) and HD4000 (ivy-bridge) from the second and third gen intel core mobile cpus? If not, can another distro use them?
