Removing a Dual Boot

A few months ago, I set up my computer to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04. It worked fine. Now I rarely use Ubuntu, and I would like to remove it. I would like to know all of the steps I would need to go through to do this. I have a large partition for winows 7, its recovery partition, then i have one partition for Ubuntu.

If you are using the windows boot loader, just delete the Ubuntu partition.

If you are not, then you want to delete the partition and then run a repair install of Seven.

Hello InkLill.



You will need to completely remove Ubuntu and Grub (of course) and then mark the Windows 7 partition as active and then run as many as 3 separate startup repairs with system re-starts between the repairs; start by having a look at the tutorial at the link below, it lists most everything needed to accomplish each step, if you have further questions please feel free to ask. Be sure to post back to keep us informed.

Hello InkLill;

This tutorial will show one way to restore the Windows 7 boot manager while removing the Ubuntu menu. Then just remove the Ubuntu partitions from your hard drive and use the empty space as you wish.
