Standalone OpenSUSE on PC but want WINDOWS

Hey guys.

I recently bought a pc with OpenSUSE installed on it. Generally I can figure these things out on my own, but I have searched for DAYS and can't figure out how to remove the Standalone OpenSUSE, and install my Windows 7 that I own.

I have a windows 7 disk in my dvd rom but the GRUB bootloader doesn't recognize it, so it automatically boots to the Linux distro.....

Boot the Windows 7 DVD to Clean Install Windows 7, deleting all partitions using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 to create and Format New partition(s) as you wish.

Or after deleting all to Unallocated Space. highlight the space and just click Next and the installer will do it for you.
