The bottom line is that I have no use for Mint Linux anymore, and would like to remove grub along with the OS. The problem is that I finally have Windows 8 set up just that special little way I like it! I've done my fair share of research and have found that, between Windows XP and Windows 7, the commands vary between the operating systems. I'm afraid to try any commands related to older operating systems due to this fact.
I do happen to have the installation disc as well as my serial and a repair disc at disposal. I'm not sure if it's relevant, but I do have a picture of how my drives are partitioned here: http://puu.sh/3O5wC.png I'm using a GPT table instead of MBR, I think, so please keep that in mind. Thanks in advance!
