Question: Did you install Mint to your Hard drive in a partition (better performance, etc...) or did you install it with the WUBI (Within Windows? (Edit: sorry didn't read your post through: try method 1. If you are unsure of using Mint as a primary OS, install it through WUBI, it is far easier to remove)
Method 1: Installed on Hard drive: All you need to do is boot your Mint CD, and then run it as a live CD.
Then you can use the Gparted utility (Partition Editor) to reformat your drive. MAKE SURE TO REFORMAT THE RIGHT DRIVE! Reformat it to NTFS if you want to be able to see the partition in Windows.
Then you might have some trouble with the Boot loader of Windows. To fix this go into the Windows Console at boot using the installation CD and when prompted type in "Fixboot".
Method 2 Installed with WUBI: Boot into Windows, go to preferences remove programme remove Linux Mint. Easy Peasy
I would just like to remind you in case you are using the RC of Windows 7 they they are going to discontinue it much earlier than expected. If you have the real thing, well have fun, I have seen good reviews of this edition of Windows. I haven't booted on my windows partition for nearly a year now... , but Vista (just joking!)
Hope that helps..

Only problem is that my recovery DVD that I got with my computer doesn't work. Is there a way I can reinstall some bootloader so I can get into Windows? Preferably from the Mint liveCD?
