Yes. Windows doesn't recognize anthing but NTFS and Fat32 and the last two partitions are not recognized by Windows so ...

But you can verify this before you delete them ...

HOW?
By booting to your Ubuntu Live CD, opening GParted, and looking to see if the last two partitions are labeled at "ext4" and "swap." If they are labeled "ext4" and "swap" then they are Ubuntu and not Windows.

Ok, lemme try. I will have to reboot, as I am using the same laptop.

DONE

OK, it was the same as Windows.

So now I remove them from Disk Management?

EDIT:
There were less items in the list than yours. Why is this?

Yes, delete those two "Partitions" or "Volumes" and Ubuntu is gone ...

YAY! I'm all done! NOW:

Tell me how to take the screenshots during boot. I know in Windows, you use the Snipping Tool or the Print Screen button, but in boot before Windows... You said you would tell me.

Ctrl + Prt Scr (keyboard keys Control and Print Screen) will capture the desktop image to the clipboard. Open Paint and paste, and you can edit the image and save it as you wish.

This software Sun's VirtualBox allow you to install an OS like a program. The OS boots up in a window on the desktop and Ctrl + Prt Scr will capture the boot screens.

Nevermind. I don't want to reinstall. I will keep that link incase someone wants it before they put on their OS. My website is at: www.computersrule.net and some people ask me in person, so I can tell them about it.

You are most welcome, Andy! I think you will find all the folks here at Windows Seven Forums very helpful and very friendly. You are welcome here any time.

Might I suggest you go back to Ubuntu Forums and thank Michy99 for posting that link for you? I bet it would be appreciated!!

Cheers!
