How to uninstall Fedora completely?


I had uninstall fedora from my pc but now my window XP is removed and Linux fedora is loaded on my pc. I tried to install Windows XP, but the boot disc is goes to freeze mode. Please assist me how to remove Linux fedora and install Windows XP on my pc.


The Windows CD does not know how to delete the disk partition that Linux uses. You will need to delete the partition either using a bootable Linux Live CD or using another program like Killdisk. Check out Killdisk at this site: http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

If you can boot from a floppy disk - download the floppy version on another computer and use it to delete the Linux partition.

If you need a bootable CD - download the ISO version and burn an image file to a CD.


Thanks to xpcman for this tip on the forum.
