Tried to install Windows 7 back on the computer (booting from cd), but it can't use the partitions created by Linux. Can it be explained to me very carefully how to delete the partitions or uninstall mint?
I seem to be quite a Linuxdummie...
You're not a linuxdummie because you run into this snag. Windows just cannot read the language that Linux used to format the hard drive or partition. It's like giving somebody a Cyrillic manual when they only know the Latin alphabet
What you'll have to do is to reformat. Looking at this manual
, when you get to "Where do you want to install Windows?
" you will have to click "Drive options (advanced)", select the partition you installed Linux Mint to, and reformat it to NTFS.
Mind you, be very careful here if you have more stuff on the drive. A couple of miss-clicks can result in loss of all data!!
Good luck and too bad Linux didn't cut it for your.
