I'm assuming this means he wants Windows on the former Ubuntu machine,
although you don't say this. Windows will quite happily blow the Ubuntu
install into the weeds when you install it ( Windows doesn't even
recognise the existence of non-windows operating systems ) So you wouldn't
need to do a thing - Ubuntu would just be obliterated  ;-)

If you want to wipe/reformat the disc, you can do it for example from a
live CD using the "gparted" program. Probably not necessary though.
