I've been using Gloria since this past summer, and while I enjoy it a lot, I want to switch back to windows.
I tried booting up from a Windows 7 CD and when I saw the partitions, it would not allow me to install windows as it wasn't "NFTS". It wouldn't allow me to format the partition I had mint on either.
What I want to do is format my computer, start completely fresh with Windows 7 and then eventually dual boot with Windows 7/Mint 8.
I'm a real novice here, so please try to put everything in layman's terms. Pretend like you are teaching your 8 year old little brother!
