    Fresh install windows.
    Obviously that will wipe everything.
    Linux is pretty useless huh?
     
  3. That's probably what you will be doing. As you haven't mentioned what distro you were using or given any other relevant or useful information.
    It's quite often only as useful as the user...

    Why is that important? I'm pretty sure you can format everything and reinstall windows, assuming you held on to your copy.

    Yeah it's pretty useless most of the time IMO.
     
  5. It's not important but it is relevant, as this is the "alternative os" forum and there may be other ways to help the OP out before resorting to "fresh install windows"? If the OP does go back to windows then that's all well and good, but doing so might only involve rebooting and selecting it from the grub menu, rather than reinstalling. If this is the case than it's only a matter of rewriting the mbr with the standard windows one and then booting into windows and removing the partitions created for "linux".

    Regardless, the OP has not provided anywhere near enough info, it's actually very vague and on most linux support forums would simply be considered a troll post - speaking of which:
