    I moved this post to applications, in the hope it will get a better answer. It was inappropriately posted in the wrong area.

    Forgive me, I'm a little late to this thread but one option may be to re-
    partition the machine to leave a minimal linux partition and set the boot
    loader to default to your desired OS with a timeout of .01 seconds or other
    similar minimal setting. True, it wouldn't get completely rid of the linux
    system but it'd be pretty close.

    I've never had to do it myself but I'd had to that'd be my approach.
