Hi,
I have a dual boot WindowsXP/PeppermintOS setup on my computer.
I want to uninstall the PeppermintOS. I want to use the whole computer for Linux.
I installed the PeppermintOS from a USB pendrive.
How do I uninstall the PeppermintOS ?
Hope someone can help :oops:
take care
Don W

If I understand conrrectly you want to remove P2 and keep Windows intact and useable. Do you have a cdrom on this machine? Do you have a Windows installation disk? Did you install grub to the MBR?
