I purchased a used system with Linux Mint installed on it. I've never used Linux before at all (been meaning to for years
, but I dinked around with this quite a bit, learning my way, etc. It's really smooth and I love it -- but I purchased this system for my girlfriend, who doesn't want to use Linux. How do I uninstall / delete / departition Linux from the harddrive? I've tried several tutorials online, had a friend take a look.. done all sorts of things that are no doubt WRONG, but I can't get it to go anywhere.
Please bear in mind that I am a complete Linux beginner, so something even as simple as going to "Root" is beyond me at the moment. Is there a forum or walkthrough that'll allow me to fairly simple wipe this operating system from this harddrive? I plan on re-installing it on one of my personal machines, just to get more used to Linux in general, but for the time being, I'd appreciate assistance in taking it off.
*I do have a Windows XP install disc, which my girl would like to have on there
*I also have the Linux Mint OS disc
