Deleting Ubuntu Linux Partitions?

Q: Deleting Ubuntu Linux Partitions?

I currently partitioned my drive so I can have a dual boot of Windows 7. How would I go about deleting the Ubuntu partitions, so I have just Windows 7? I don't want to just delete the partitions because the computer boots off of GRUB. Can you guys help me out?

Thanks in advance,
David

Preferred Solution: Deleting Ubuntu Linux Partitions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was wondering if anyone can help me with my problem.
I installed Zorin OS 5.2 (Linux) along-side Windows 7.
And then i found out about Windows 8 Developer Preview, and decided to give it a try.
So now i want to delete Linux and Dual Boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 DP.
But there is no Uninstall option in Linux. I tried deleting Linux partitions (theres 2 of them)
and when i restart, it shows me the black screen, saying "Error: Could not find partition"
"Grub help: _" Something like a command prompt. And then i can't boot into Windows 7.
I was recently reading something on the internet and found out that Linux Grub Boot Loader messed up with MBR on my Windows 7 partition.
I had to install Zorin OS 5.2 again, just to be able to boot in Windows 7.
If anyone can help me with this problem, I would appreciate it, or at least help me with making Windows 7 primary OS to boot in.

A:I tried deleting Linux partitions

In the meantime. Someone may post a better solution. But I would remove linux and then follow this tutorial.

A:trouble installing fedora 14 and ubuntu after deleting linux partition

Be careful with Fedora 14. You have separate partitions and one thing Fedora does is merge all partitions into one logical volume group. You have a backup
partition which contains drivers for your computer/laptop, ideally I would make a copy of this data before you install.

Is there some reason you prefer Fedora over Ubuntu? Both use Gnome 2.32 as the desktop, with the addition that Ubuntu 11.04 will install Unity desktop as well.

Unfortunately you cant tell much from the windows partition manager as drives are just assigned a letter, and you can only have 4 primary partitions.
Post on the linux forum if youre happy with your windows setup, Wmorri is Fedora Ambassador, but when you do please provide the following information.
Boot with the Ubuntu CD in Live mode (or try before installing). It will pick up your network, open a terminal and post output of:

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my HP Mini 110-1116NR, then deleted the partitions that had Ubuntu on them, not knowing that Ubuntu comes with GRUB2, and sets itself as the default boot for that system. Now that GRUB2 is not installed, since it was on my only HDD, it looks for the GRUB2 partition, which does not exist, so I get an error on a command script that shows as follows:

"GRUB -error:no such partition
"grub rescue>

I still have Ubuntu on a flash drive. And I have my sister's computer to use until I get mine fixed, so I need help. I downloaded the Win7 Recovery Disc, but I don't have a program that can write the ISO image file to a USB flash drive, so I need to know how to get the ISO on the USB Drive, or how to fix the boot for Win7. I'm willing to do anything. lol. I've already done a couple hours worth of 'Google-ing' for how to fix this error and have come empty-handed. Please help.

Last night one of my friends was "guiding" me through an installation for Ubuntu to a flash drive. I was doing it on my current computer. I removed some partitions from the installation thinking it would just remove them from the list, I then tried to install it on the flash drive. (I also changed some of the NTFS FAT 32's around and stuff, But i don't know what that means)

It then brought me to a black screen with a blinking underscore.
After doing everything below, it now says Missing operating system.
So I might have made things worse.

I have tried the recovery Cd which I burned off of another windows7 computer, I tried bootrec.exe as well.

I'm not entirely sure what to do at this point. I am currently using the same computer, but on the trail version - "try ubuntu" of ubuntu. All of my files seem to be intact.

Also, when I ran one of the recovery options it had a box for listed OS's and none displayed, it also said select drivers to install to disk and brought me to system32. (I had no idea what to look at, at that point)

I also did

>diskpart
>slect disk 0
>list volume

and some other things...

Nothing seems to be working and I'm out of ideas and running short on time to get my work done.

Any help or additional information requests would be great.

A:No OS - blackscreen / possible partitions deleted / ubuntu

Hello GhostMuffin Welcome to the Seven Forums!

And into the world of despair since the flashing means a hard drive is not bootable not having any master boot record(mbr) entries or even an OS on it! When you "removed" some partitions apparently you removed C and any other partition on the host main drive not the flash drive!

Were you using GParted live for this?? or another partitioning program? In GParted Live the main drive would likely be seen as "sda" not Disk 0. If you were using the Disk Part tool and ran the clean or clean all command once you had run with the following commands here you wiped the main drive without a doubt!

Disk Part
List Disk
Select Disk 0
clean or clean all
exit

and say good bye to whatever was on the drive!

If you had been using the version of GParted found in a distro like ubuntu that version wants to take charge and partition, format the entire drive in favor of the flavor of Linux that would going onto the flash drive. If you inadvertently selected sda when the flash drive as sdb and nuked partitions there when clicking the apply buttong the scrolling bar you watched was the main drive being wiped instead!

Since a linux install disk if not direct from iso image was there to boot from when running the distro's installer you can boot into that disk live again and view the main drive to see if anything still remains on the drive that would suggest a failed install of the Grub boot loader while the 7 mbr was wiped as well....

Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

I have a PC that is currently a dual boot between Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (Hardy Heron). The two operating systems are on separate physical drives. Ubunutu is on the PC?s original 250 gig drive (the primary) and Win 7 is on a 1 TB Seagate internal drive that I added later (the slave).

I already discussed dual booting with Ubuntu and Win 7 on a Linux forum. I installed each OS completely independently of the other. I installed Ubuntu first without the other drive installed. I later disconnected the 250 GB primary drive and installed Windows 7 to the 1 TB drive as if Ubuntu were not even present on the PC. Later I reconnected and edited a file known as menu.lst in Ubuntu?s feature known as ?Grub?. Grub looks at the file and gives me the choice of Windows 7 or Ubuntu when I boot up.

Now it?s a long story, but I need to add Windows XP to my choices. I?m told on the Ubuntu forum that I can temporarily disconnect the Ubuntu drive and set up XP on the 1 TB drive as a dual boot with Bootloader handling the choice between Win 7 and XP. The idea is to get it running right and later reconnect the Ubuntu drive. Grub will give me the choice between Ubuntu and Windows; then if I choose Windows, Bootloader will give me the choice between Win 7 and XP. I could live with that.

So the Ubuntu drive is disconnected. We don?t have to worry about that in this thread. If I have any trouble with Grub, I?ll... Read more

Tom, I think the answer to your question is on the first sentence of the Tutorial how to load the SATA drivers: "When you install Win XP, setup can not find your Hard Drive."

So, if setup can find your HD, you should be good to go.

One remark: installing XP after Windows 7 is a bit more complicated, you will have to repair Windows 7 boot file to add XP. You have mentioned the tutorial, so you shoudl be good to go. I just highlight it since it can be a stumbling block.

Regarding the floppy disk thing, from what I know it is XP's idiosyncrasy, it doesn't allow drivers to be loaded with USB drives. It is from a time there were no USB drives...

Hello,

I am new to this forum and I am having problems with making linux partitions.
I open up the cfdisk utility and it says that it has a fatal error and it cannot open my hard disk. I have done this in the past and it was fine. Now it won't let me. Also, I am running DSL (Damn small linux) on a live cd and I am trying to install it as my sole OS.
 

A:Help with Linux Partitions

if you don't care about the HD contents, then you can try wiping out any existing partition table entries. Do something like "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdX bs=1024 count=1024" where hdX is your hard drive device. This will write zeroes (1MB worth) to the beginning of the drive and should clear up any confusion the partitioner may have.

Don't know about DSL, but there are two other partitioning tools for Linux: fdisk and parted.

Hi all,

Need to clarify something. On another forum I'm encountering some people saying that with Linux it can only handle and or create and manage a maximum of 63 partitions? I am having trouble grasping this mystical '63' number I keep seeing. Can anyone here confirm this and explain it? And is there a workaround. I've always known and believed I could create as many logical partitions as I wanted, maxing at like 255 or something. Is this a Linux exclusive situation or what?

Users at other forum weren't too helpful with this matter, they basicly said try to push past 63 and see what happens. Well in a perfect world I could, but I have a deadline for this project at work and cannot get to 63 and then have my project flounder and die. I need work-arounds, confirmations etc, if anyone can. Many thanks ahead of time.

Someone mentioned creating individual kernel modules as a workaround to creating hundreds of partitions for my project. Can anyone shed light on this as well.

Thanks for reading.
 

A:Linux Max Partitions....63???

the answer is likely to be in the size of the programming structure that holds the memory copy of the actual partition table.
remember, each physical HD has one partition table holding all the mappings for that HD.
this will result in a hierarchy of HD[x]->part[y]->filesys-info

such limits are ususally powers of 2, so expect 32,64,128, ...

hi guys,

for those who doesn't know , Kali Linux (ex-Backtrack) is a powerful forensic distro based on Debian, but many of us use Ubuntu (or variants) because it is easier to handle.

so in this tutorial, i will show you how to proceed to add Kali repositories to get Kali tools in Ubuntu.

i am using Kubuntu Trusty personally so this tutorial will reflect it; you have to adjust the procedure slightly if you use Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Xubuntu or/and with an older kernel

1- open your Software Center/Manager, the application that allows you to pick various softwares (Muon Discover, etc..)

2- go to each link below, click on technical details , select your ubuntu version; important , Trusty is not available yet so you have to choose Raring instead.


Code:
https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux

https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux1

https://launchpad.net/~wagungs/+archive/ubuntu/kali-linux2
3- click on Source tab , then "add source"



Spoiler


4- copy the links below then add them one by one in order to the source (step 3).
For example for my Kubuntu Trusty 14.04 i have to use Raring


Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux/ubuntu raring main

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux1/ubuntu raring main

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/wagungs/kali-linux2/ubuntu raring main
5- close and relaunch your software center to see if the lines above are added.

Since there is not CD/DVD-Rom, what would be the best option to do it?

In addition, is the process of deleting Linux and installing Windows 7 pretty complicated? I just dont want to mess up the laptop, like drivers etc. If Windows 7 can be installed, only then will I purchase this laptop.

I was originally using Ubuntu 7.04 on this computer. But Due to A MAJOR problem that nobody has provided me with a fix for and Im tired of waiting. I want to know which Distro would be right for me.

Im going to be using it as a primary OS and IM going to keep Windows around for gaming. Im currently on a Dual boot system with Ubuntu 7.04 and XP Pro

The reason I want to replace Ubuntu is because my Lite On SATA CDburner / DVD burner combo drives DOES not exist peroid to it, and since IM a linux newbie and the Linux pros are basically being useless to me by not even seeming interested in helping me (some community heh) and the ones that are trying to help dont speak newb, or are just as confused as I am.

and IM sure you agree with thats the ONLY Disk drive on your computer and you cant use it with the OS of choice, its time to find another OS!

So Im going to be using Linux to surf the web, download, play music, burn cds in mp3 format to listen to in my car, chat with friends, and do basic general use stuff, and just keep my dual boot of XP for playing video games.

I want something as close to Ubuntu as possible since BEYOND that CD/DVD issue that ruined that OS for me, I REALLY liked Ubuntu though I cant see how people say its the best when its so ridden with bugs and apperantly has so many issues with SATA drives!

Hey, I have set up our home network with an E2000 Linksys router and we have a wireless printer on this Network 2 windows 7 pc's, 1linux (Ubuntu 10.04), 1 iMac (snow leopard), and 1 Windows Xp pc.

This might be an easy question or a tricky one but if anyone knows how to make it so that we can share files between computers and also so that they can all access the printer on the network.


So far the only ones that can see each other on the network are the Windows pc's but i am still having trouble even making it so that the Windows pc's can share files.


Can anyone help me!??

I built this system in March 2009 and windoze vista 64 home premium.

This particular edition of vista was a nightmare from day one and I eventually found a work-a-round to get Ubuntu installed. NO Linux support from the MB manufacturer.

5 days after getting it to a dual boot system, vista stopped recognizing the mouse and keyboard.

So, I have a MOBO that doesn't like Ubuntu and is a nightmare to try to fond workarounds for.

Here is what I have to work with:

XFX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID

AMD Phenom 9500 Processor HD9500WCGDBOX - 2.20GHz, 4 x 512KB Cache, 1800MHz (3600 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket AM2+, Processor with Fan

Kingston PC6400 800MHz 4GB DDR2 Desktop Memory - (2 x 2048MB), 240 Pin

OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2x2048MB)

XFX GeForce 9600 GSO Fatal1ty Edition Video Card - 768MB DDR2, PCI Express 2.0, Dual Link DVI, SLI Ready

Seagate 500GB Serial ATA HD 7200/16MB/SATA-3G

And the full sized ATX tower w/750 watt PS.

Which Motherboards would be the best to work with that HAS Linux SUPPORT?

Thanks for all the help over the years guys!

I truly do appreciate it!

A:Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

Hi,

Welcome to TSF!!

This sounds like you are having problems installing Windows, I will move this to the windows vista forum as that is what you have listed as an OS. Hope you are able to get this figured out. I am sure the wonderful people in the window forum will be able to help you out.

Cheers!

Hi all, I have recently bought a HP Elite book 840 G3 and installed Linux/ubuntu 16.04. Everything works properlyexcept one thing which is really problematic for me : the VGA output does not work and I am not able to getany image of the computer. I have tested it on more tan 20 videoprojectors and I get only one casewhere I can send the image to videoprojector, all other cases nothing was possible. On the other hand,as I also have Windows 7 installed on a double boot, everything worked out properly with windows.Is there a known incompatibility in the graphic card or whatever works for the VGA outputwith Linux/Ubuntu 16.04 ? Is there a way to solve this issue ? Thanks Cyril

Hi All,
I recently installed Ubuntu by making a seperate partition on my machine, but it really isn't working right. So I repaired the windows boot launcher (using a repair disk) and I now want to completely remove linux and reclaim the partition as my own.

How?

Thanks in advanced!

A:Deleting a Partition (Ubuntu)

Assuming you just have Vista on C: partition and the ubuntu partition is immediately after, you should be able to go into Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Disk Management. Delete the ubuntu partition so it shows as unallocated space. Expand C: to include all of it.

If you have an image backup program I would do that first if you are inexperienced with disk partitioning. If Disk Management gives you a hard time you can use Partition Wizard freeware boot CD instead. Disk Management should do it for you in a few minutes. It's not complicated.

Wow, Ubuntu was a major pain to delete. After deleting/re-installing Ubuntu just to be able to get a MBR, I was finally able to get EasyBCD to set a new Windows MBR. But, when it boots, both Windows (WDP/W7) installations have (Recovery) next to them? How do I resolve this? They both boot fine, just unsure why Recovery is listed next to each and would like to correct it.

A:Reparing MBR after deleting Ubuntu

What is the other OS besides Win7?

You can edit the name shown on Boot Screen using EasyBCD Edit OS menu.

For others: the procedure to recover Win7 when it fails to boot is to mark Win7 Active, then boot into System Recovery Options to Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
