Windows 7: 7 + Kubuntu Management

7 + Kubuntu Management

Hi People

I have installed the KUBUNTU 10.4 os 'side by side' with Windows 7, on the same c: disk,making it dual-boot system with GRUB option.The dedicated sizes of Windows 7 is 133GB,and the KUBUNTU 113 GB.

Now,when I am trying to uninstall the Kubuntu, I face a problem as follows: according to the Kubuntu manulas, I have to use the 7 Disk Management
and simply delete the Kubuntu partition,whict 7 sees it as "unallocated space";
but when i try to delete this unallocated space, the 7 remark it just as "New Simple Volume", refusing me to make any change remarking "you can'nt create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions"

I have tried since several methods to delete that unallocated space,all in vain.

Thank in advance for any solution

This solution is not guaranteed and may result in lose of windows 7 so I would suggest to back up everything first. I would suggest using a linux livecd to erase the kbuntu boot.
  1. Insert the LiveCD and boot into it.
  2. Find the disk partition management, (in gnome its called gparted, may be different in kde.) or if you know fdisk you could use that as well.
  3. Find the partition you wish to delete and click on format.
  4. Now you will have to resize the other partition to use the full space of the HD. (caution while resizing depending on the size it may seem like it has frozen at times, but wait until it has finished. DO NOT TURN OFF POWER manually, wait until it has finished.)
Now if you used the grub boot loader you are going to have to fix the Master Boot Record(MBR)
  1. Insert the Windows 7 disk and boot into it.
  2. Go through the screens until you are presented with 3 choices. Click on "Repair Your Computer"
  3. Choose Command Prompt.
  4. Change your dir to boot.
  5. Now run "bootsect /nt60 C:\" (without the quotes)
  6. Alternatively, you can run "bootsect /nt60 SYS" or "bootsect /nt60 ALL" to repair the system partition or all partitions.
  7. Eject the DVD and restart. You computer should be all Windows 7 now.
Hope this works for you. This is how I always went about deleting a linux partition.

When I attempted to install this browser on Kubuntu, it produced an error saying that it wasn't compatible with the OS. The only reason that I can think of that this might be true, is because the version of Kubuntu in question is x64 and Opera is only x32, however this has never been a problem on...

Kubuntu in VirtualBox disables Windows audio
When running Kubuntu in Sun VirtualBox it disables Windows audio devices. Only way to re-enable audio seems to be reboot. When running Ubuntu, it's OK. No problems with Windows devices. Both Kubuntu and Ubuntu v. 9.04. I like KDE more than Gnome, that's the reason for Kubuntu. Any ideas? ...
