I'm using fedora 18 side by side Windows 7 and i want to remove fedora. I'm going to that by deleting the fedora partitions from Windows 7. PS: when i installed in the first place fedora, I didn't overwrite MBR, the GRUB2 is installed in /boot partition. So is this method will expose me to problem when the laptop boot into Windows 7 ? ( the object of this is to get a new fresh installation of Fedora ).

So, when you boot your computer, you see the windows boot loader, not Grub? – terdon Jul 4 '13 at 13:00

If you see the Windows Boot Loader and not grub when turning on your machine then deleting the Linux partition should be fine.

You don't need to do this to get a new install of Fedora though, you can just instal over the old system as long as you format your / partition during the install process, you will be fine.
