      Use the installation media for Mint

      If it was a USB thumb drive, DVD or whatever, boot with that and there is supposed to be an option to remove Mint. This should also remove the partitions that Mint creates when installed. Try this first, if it works, GREAT, if not, then there are other much more technical methods to use. So let’s try rerunning the installer first.
      Note: I do not recommend attempting using Windows to remove Linux partitions unless you know what you are doing.
      Follow the guidelines in the installer…failure to do so could leave your machine in an unbootable state!
