Will Linux partition appear when Installing windows 7
I have windows 7 RC, windows vista, and linux mint running in a triple boot config. I dont really want to keep linux and was planning on installing the Retail version of Windows 7 once i buy it. However, while im booted in windows, i cannot see linux at all. I can only see the Windows 7 partition (C: ) and vista partition (D: ) under Computer.
But i can see it in Disk Management
The last two partitions are for linux.
So my question is, when i decide to install windows 7, will the windows 7 install disc see those linux partitions so i can delete them while installing Windows 7? You know the utility in the Windows 7 install disc that allows u to delete, format etc. partitions.

If you have concerns about any GRUB remaining, then you can use Diskpart from the Windows 7 DVD to do the deepest possible cleaning:
Boot into the Windows 7 DVD Repair console, open a Command Line and type:
SELECT DISK # (for Windows 7 HD)
clean all (use "all" to zero the HD, deepest possible clean)
create partition primary
select partition 1
Now you can boot back into Windows 7 DVD to Custom Install to already cleaned and formatted partition.
This will avoid having 100mb System Reserved boot partition created. If you want that partition (perhaps for its Repair tools made available by tapping F8 at bootup) then exit after clean all and do partitioning and formatting using Custom install Drive tools.
