I'm not a LINUX guy, but I'm pretty sure you need to remove the GRUB (Boot Loader) before you can get started with your Windows install.

NTFS is Windows native; you have this in linux group.

Which Windows OS are you trying to install?  You have the option to partition and format during setup.  What is the problem when trying to do that?

Are you trying to wipe the drive or install as dual-boot with something else?
Setup does gives you the option to partition and format.

Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
In the setup you can delete the partitions and Windows will create a new one using the entire disk.  Or if you want to have different partitions, you can create yourself.

You need to remove boot partition from disk to get rid on this issue.

@upanwar,
Please note that the information was already given in my post.

Telling someone to "remove boot partition" is not useful advice - unless you give them some additional information for how to perform the action/function.
