One does not uninstall an OS.

One wipes it (best) or simply installs the new OS over the old - Win 7 will format and partition the drive for its own use.

Be careful. Make sure your system supports Win 7 and that all the drivers you need are available. (It does seem to support 7.)

Go here and visit Support so you can get the documentation and drivers you will need.

Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser available free here

Of course having Nix on this system is going to make things harder as it requires Windows to run on.

I would also use a Wiping Utility like Kill Disc to destroy all the Data and Partition Information on the HDD as Linux uses 3 Partition and Windows 7 will at best only address one of those 3 by default unless you know what you are doing.

In order to have a chance of running the upgrade advisor utility, in many versions of linux, you need to first install wine to attempt to run a windows based executable file...Wine can be found here:
As for instructions on installtion and running it, look at their site and GOOGLE!!!!!!!!! :) basically i say this linux drunk enough to think it is windows for a short time.
