Hey guys. So I was bored and tried adding kali Linux os on my computer and somehow messed it up. I have windows 7 and after the Asus screen it shows a blinking line and won't boot. Also will not boot in safe mode. I'm thinking I somehow wiped my hard drive along with my original os.

Ok, so i take it you are not bored anymore?

So get a valid Windows 7 disk, and load it using the sticker on the hardware that you have.

Make certain to RE-INSTALL and not just repair the install. If you go to microsoft, they will give the load for windows seven, you just need a valid lisnce, and you should have that on your hardware already.

If I am speaking greek to you right now, please in the future NEVER ATTEMPT to build an DUAL BOOT PC without making certain all requirements are met first.

Have FUN!

Will everything still be on my hard drive? And if I get rid of kali will my hard drive be partitioned normally?

NO. It will be reformatted. The rebuild will get rid of it, if you tell it to. Did you build a separate partition?

I have to step out, Ill be back as soon as possible.

I think I split my hard drive for half on windows os and half on Linux. My lack of knowledge on the subject doesn't really help.

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

OK, I am back.

Well, then you will need to reformat the second partition also.

So you're saying the only thing I can do is get another windows os and install which will wipe my computer like I'm starting over?

Yep. By your description, the linux load sounds like it mangled your settings. If it will not boot in safe mode, then yes.

I've tried reinstalling windows 7 and it is saying "windows cannot be installed to the hard drive because it is not NTFS." How to I reformat it in kali?
