Re: How can I remove Ubuntu from laptop?
I'm finding this an interesting discussion, as I recently dual booted Lubuntu 10.10. So far so good, I'm very happy with it, but I would really like a "non-destructive" way to return to Windows only, or move on to a different Linux dual boot, down the road. Up to now I've understood it's necessary to use a Windows disk (which I don't have for my netbook) to fully replace the Linux install.

2) Would this method leave my existing Windows installation, software and files intact, or require reinstalling Windows?

New to Linux. Currently dual boot Lubuntu 10.10 with W7 on Acer One netbook. Experimenting with Mint 15 XFCE on netbook and a Dell laptop with peripherals (Persistent 8GB Live USB.)
