How to remove Ubuntu and put Windows back on?

I have had Ubuntu on my netbook for a while now but I really need Windows back on my netbook for one of my classes. I have no idea how to uninstall it.

Every way I have seen so far that removes it off my netbook seems to lead me to another problem. My netbook can't read CDs because there is no CD drive. I just bought Windows 7 but all it came with is a code. I really need help. I have Ubuntu 12.04.

  1. You need to download a Windows ISO, and unzip it into a Pendrive.

  2. In your netbook BIOS, change the Boot Order, and select USB/Flashdrive as the First Boot.

  3. Make a clean install of Windows. It's Highly Recommended to make two partitions, one for Windows, and one for Ubuntu, in case of emergency (to recover files).

    • If you choose this option, first install Windows, and later, install Ubuntu.
