This question already has an answer here:

This may have been asked before, but I can't seem to find an appropriate answer. I've been searching for about two days now, to no avail. Here is my situation. I purchased a new laptop. The original thought was to put Ubuntu on first, that put on Windows 7, which I have. After I installed Ubuntu, It wouldn't let me install windows. After a while, I got frustrated and decided to REMOVE Ubuntu and just install Windows 7 for a class i'm going to need in a few days. For the life of me, I can't uninstall Ubuntu. I've tried everything possibe and even google searched. I purchased WipeDrive, still not working. Tried to restart and boot from disk. It freezes. Sometimes only sees Ubuntu on C drive and not my cd drive. Please, for the love of god, help me get Ubuntu off of my computer. Please.
