Re: How can i remove Ubuntu from my laptop

Try booting with a utilty cd ,such as Partition Wizard. Download the Bootable CD iso here .Get ImgBurn here to burn the image to cd.Boot from the cd to delete partitions andcreate a new one.

Not if you wipe the Factory recovery partition then you will have to order the Factory REcovery media from hp.

You will have to buy a Windows 7 media if you can't find the ISO to create Windows 7 install disk or USB. And afther that you need to make sure the install Windows 7 matches the Factory installed O/S.
