Solved how do you uninstall peppermint 7

Specs: Windows 10, 8 gb
I have an HP computer that came with windows 8.1, and upgraded to windows 10. I resized my partition c, formated, and installed peppermint 7, along side of windows 10, as a dual boot. I found the peppermint was to complicated for me, and want to go back with just my windows 10, and possibly another dual boot with another os, like windows 7. I see some guidelines, but they all call for deleting the linux partitions in disc management. I am unable to determine what is windows, and what is linux. Can someone give me a suggestion on getting all peppermint off. If i do a complete recovery, will that reformat my drive, and get rid of peppermint?

✔ Best Answer
If Grub has taken over as your boot loader, the 1st thing you should do is restore the Win10 boot loader. Do you have a Win10 installation DVD? If not, create one. A Google search will explain how to use it.

Once you've restored the boot loader you can delete the Linux partition & then reformat it using NTFS. That way, it can be used for Win7 or data storage. If you're having a hard time with Disk Management, download & install EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition.

No, don't do a full recovery. You only need to repair the boot loader. Like I said, do a Google search for the instructions.

not for sure which, update, or download. I canceled, and thought i would get up in the morning, withy a fresh start of the day, for wwe is on, and i probably would not pay attention. If you are up, and can, leave me a step by step event on what i should do to complete this. I would appreciate it tremendously.
