    The easiest method would be to reformat the entire hard drive and do a clean installation of Windows. Booting up the computer from a bootable Windows installation DVD or USB drive. It should give you the option to reformat the drive before installing it. This will remove Linux and any other files saved on the entire hard drive. You should save any files you wish to keep to an external storage device and confirm that they were actually saved before doing any reformatting. You will also need a registration key to activate Windows.
