    Okay I have checked around for a few days now on different ways to get rid of this. I have a hard drive that is full-partitioned to linux. The first step I took was to run fdisk.exe I can run it successfully but once I get there I try to use and option and it goes to that option and freezes. The next thing I tried was to use a partitioning program (if anyone has a free bootable partiotioning program please post a link) It wont work with Linux even with WINE. So if anyone has any way to get rid of Ubuntu please help me out.

    I have a second problem. I have another hard drive that has Windows 98 on it. I installed Windows 98 Standard Edition then upgraded to Second Edition. After I did that I installed an Age Of Empires 2 Demo. When I restarted my computer the Windows loading screen would come up then a weird flash would happen and It would sit there with a black screen. Now what happens is it says there is a Windows Loading Error and I need to re-start my computer. But everytime I restart there is a loading error. I ran Ubuntu from the disk for a little to try and see what was wrong in the files. Now when I start it up it wont boot disk and all it give me in a command prompt screen with C:\>

    Thanks in advance for any help you can get me. Im willing to wipe the entire hard drive and start from scratch.

    If you have a C prompt what happens if you type: Win

    Normally you have to "Fix the MBR" (Master Boot Record) to fully remove Linux and the Boot. It can be done different ways depending on which Windows you have. Google: fix mbr
