How To Uninstall Mint?

Postby johnywhy on Tue Feb 05, 2008 9:24 pm

how do i uninstall the whole operating system? it's a dual-boot with windows vista. i installed mint after vista, so grub is the boot loader.

i'm NOT asking how to uninstall packages or software in mint. i mean the entire operating system.

thanks

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There are many ways ...

Delete the partitions that you don't need, resize the ntfs partition and restore the MBR.

Restore a an earlier image before you installed Mint.

Fresh reinstall of windows.

Might be a few more ...

i have a vague recollection that mint backed up my mbr someplace, during the mint install. is that correct? where would that be?
