Have duplicate boot loaders and how to delete grub

Hi, I have about more than 10 duplicate bootloaders. I was trying to delete the GRUB bootloader using this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heO1...ndex=3&list=WL but it created 10 duplicates.

So how do I delete these duplicates? How do I delete the GRUB bootloader?

I tired using the windows 7 repair disk but it said wrong version of windows 7.

You already have 3 Primary partitions, windows will not let you create a 4th, and don`t try.

Install and use Partition wizard to steal some space from C and make your partition from the un allocated space you get.

Free Partition Manager for Window PC | MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition

Some free advice ? Just install Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine, it runs fine and you won`t use it much anyway.

Unless you have some need for ubuntu, give Zorin OS 9 a try, much nicer.

Will this work, if I delete the 30GB partition and then extend the partition to 40 GB.

I know I can install Ubuntu in a Vitrual Box, but the last time I had a test (online) in 30 minutes and it was installing the windows update. I couldn't do anything other than getting a friends computer. Installing Ubuntu will at least let me do something.

Zorin OS 9 is a nice OS. Thanks for telling me about it. Never heard of it.

EDIT: I just installed Ubuntu on the 30 GB partition.

Windows allows 4 primary partitions.
