1. The very first Google hit on "remove Linux" is
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314458 , "How to Remove Linux and
Install Windows XP". Article appears to be sufficient albeit grossly
2. However, I would think it _should_ suffice to just boot your
MS-Windows XP installer from its CD or DVD or whatnot, and tell it to
blow away whatever's on the target hard drive. I'm pretty sure that
_even_ XP can handle that extremely elementary installation task.
Basically, what you tried to do was boot the hard drive. As the old
technical support joke goes, Don't Do That, Then.
