Installing Win 7 as a replacement OS on a PC presently using Ubuntu

Hello, everybody,

First thread. Hope it's in the right place. Want to install Win 7 HP 64-bit OS Full Version on pc using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.*No longer need Ubuntu. It's OS partition uses the whole hard drive. Drive formatted. *Can I install Windows with this partition and formatting? Or do I have to start from scratch, erase the hard drive and use FDISK.EXE and FORMAT.COM before installing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

When you do the windows install, there is a step to select manual disk selection/preparation. Just do that and then you can delete the 2-3 linux partitions that may be on there (you may have a swap or other partition on there besides the main ext formatted partition). You can then, repartition and let windows continue install from there...
