    Hi there. I have a laptop with dual boot, one for linux and one for windows xp. I made 3 partitions for linux: swap, root and files, and there are two partitions for windows: c and d for program files and general files. Now I want to sell the laptop but the buyer want me to undo the linux installation and I need to merge the three partitions in linux changing the file system to fat32 in order to merge it with the C partition and re-install windows xp in C with D for files as it was. Could any body hell me in doing it? I have acronis disk director suite 10 but I could use whatever is best. Thanks

    Why not just delete the Linux partitions and enlarge the Windows C and D ones to fill the (now) empty space?

    Of course, the question is how! My problem is if the software I've got is enough for the job, for example, once installed in windows is it capable of recognized the linux partitions and will be able to delete them and resize the space left, all within windows.

    Why don't you read the documentation for Acronis Disk Director Suite?
