# How should I uninstall Fedora 17 from Windows 8 (dual boot)?

I had installed Fedora 17 on my Windows 7 laptop as a dual boot option. Later after updating it a few times, when I start my system, there used to appear multiple Fedora boot options and one Windows 7 boot option.

I, then, upgraded my system to Windows 8. Now the weird issue is that, the boot menu that I used to get previously is the same. Even the Windows 7 boot option is the same although it starts up Windows 8 only.

I wish to uninstall Fedora, so that I can get rid of this boot menu so that my system directly boots to Windows 8.

Can anyone help or redirect me to the appropriate solution?

Thank you. But I don't know how helpful it will be right now. Mainly because it's not specific to Windows 8. And then I don't have any Installation CD lying around since I just upgraded it, although yeah I could go about trying to burn it all onto a CD though. But still, not too confident about this method.

The comment about Windows Vista & 7 should also work for 8. But, for repairing the boot loader I'm not sure if it is possible without using an installation media. However, you should be able to create an installation USB instead of burning a CD. (Notice that you should create a bootable media, so just copying files to a CD/USB doesn't work).

You should be able to make a rescue CD in winblows (alteast 7 had that option) and that CD be able to recover the boot partition. Note: you have to make it on the computer you're going to rescue, because if not its just going to nag about 64-bit vs 32-bit and that its not the correct version of w8 etc
