  Formatting a Hard Drive with Linux 
 Date Written 
Brian Callewaert Oct 06, 2009, 12:06am EDT Report Abuse
Alright, so I have inherited a 60GB Maxtor hard drive that has Linux on it. I want to get rid of linux so that I can later install Windows. I do not, however, have the information to log into Linux on the new hard drive, and thus I do not really know how to format it. Any suggestions? Oh, and I also don't really know much about Linux, so I am a little bit limited there.

If you just wanna wipe it you can boot from windows install disk and the drive will probably show up as "unallocated space." You can work wit it from windows boot disk or just use ultimate boot cd.
