I currently have a dual boot setup on my computer with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 18.04 installed on separate partitions. In the past, I have replaced Linux distributions by formatting the partition and installing a new one, but I’m wondering if I can do the same thing with Windows 10.

I’ve heard about Grub errors that can occur when removing a Linux distribution from a dual boot setup. If I replace Ubuntu with Windows 10, could I encounter these errors?

Ideally, I’d like to avoid dealing with Grub and the bootloader on my computer, as I don’t want to risk losing the Windows 7 partition. However, I’m not worried about losing anything on the Ubuntu partition as I know it will be formatted.
