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?

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.
