no, but you will not be able to boot into linux before some tampering. to remove the partition right click on my computer,select manage,then a window will pop up, on the left panel there should be options. click on storage,then disc management,find the linux partition delete it two times, and extend your windows partition using the freespace from the linux partition. If you want to keep linux download easybcd (google it) and and a new entry to the bootloader with your linux partition. save changes and restart. you should have a choice to boot your linux operating system. (just so you know if easybcd asks what os your linux is say ubuntu because mint is based of ubuntu)

Option 1
You need to install GRUB bootloader.
Dual Boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu

Option 2
If you have a External HD, you could copy & paste your data.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
than copy & paste your data to new install.

All Linux code must be deleted,With the CLEAN ALL command,As you have had linux on the HD you need do a Clean all & full format.

Type in command line
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK # (win HD)
CLEAN ALL
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT fs=NTFS
ASSIGN
EXIT
EXIT
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

You can now reinstall windows.
