View Full Version : Change back to windows.

June 26th, 2007, 02:28 AM

Recently I changed to Linux and swiped my hard drive while doing so. I am wondering if there would be any way to go back to Windows XP Pro? I have my original recovery disk.

Thank you.

um... have you tried booting off of the recovery disk?

That's all I have to do?

What about Ubuntu Linux, how do I get rid of it off this computer?

Boot from the windows revovery disk, wipe your HDD by following the instructions, then install windows on the newly formatted drive. It'll walk you through it.

the question is, why get rid of it?
what were your issues?

would you instead consider dual booting? You could split your HDD, give part to Windows and part to Linux, then you'll have both OSs.

That's what I do. I mostly use Ubuntu, but sometimes boot in Windows to play games or test programs that I'm porting to Windows.
