Hi All,

I installed fedora 20, dual boot, on a windows 7 OS.
I deleted the partition, from within windows, where Linux was hosted but I can't permanently delete it.

How do I delete it?

Thanks in advance.

If the partition is removed then the OS is no longer installed.  Is it still coming up as a bootable option during startup?

You can disable that startup option by doing the following:

Start -> Right click on "computer", properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced Tab -> Startup and Recovery "settings" -> uncheck "Time to display list of operating systems".

Thanks All,
I used easyBCD.
This allowed me to expand the C: after deleting the partition.
