If you have a Linux distro disk (not a live cd) you can reformat your harddrive and install linux on to it.

ok, i just thought of an idea, is there anything i can download on my other pc, that i can burn onto a disc, then put it in my laptop, and from the boot it will open up and it will show me all the os on my machine and will let my delete them?

You should know if you have the live CD or not, both or ISO's but they are clearly defined.

If you reformat your harddrive it will delete all Operating Systems.

Okay, are you willing to completely remove your computer of Windows and have it run normally from Linux, instead of running Linux from a CD?
