Hello HELPMEPls, welcome to Seven Forums!

Have a look at this tutorial at the link below, after you remove Linux you may need to mark the Windows partition Active and do the 3 separate startup repairs to get Windows booting again and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

BTW, please don't multi post, the other one will be removed.

Go into Custom, or Edit, and delete everything that you see. Then, just create a new partition and install Windows to it.

You cannot install Windows onto the Linux partition, as it's ext3 or 4.
