I tried to install Linux Mint 15 on my PC using a bootable USB. I had partitioned a drive on windows for the linux. But while installing from the bootable, I cannot see the partition. I am afraid I will lose my data, if I go ahead without seeing the partition.
I like to remove ubuntu from my laptop because I like to use only Crunchbang. I think to use gparted to delete the ubuntu partition, flag the #! partition bootable, resize the #! partition (I fear it take so loooong time :/ ) and finally update grub ...Or is better I only format all and install #! 10 ?What do you think ?Thanks in advance
I installed ubuntu 12.04 to run alongside my osx on my 2011 macbook air and would like to remove ubuntu completely to boot replace it with backtrack. I deleted the partition where ubuntu was located but for some reason rEFIt still has the linux icon on startup.
Hello, I installed linux usign rEFIT correctly, but now I want to remove the partition and combine the Linux and the Linux swap partition back into the whole partition. If you were wondering why I want to uninstall it, I just wanted to use a Virtual Machine to run Linux, because that is what I was advised to do recently, instead of dual botting.
As you can see from the fdisk output below, I've got some space between the end of the extended partition (sda3) and primary partition sda4. I'd like to resize sda3 so that I can add another partition within it. Grub (legacy) is installed in sda2, which is a primary partition. The entries in menu.lst chainload each bootable Linux partition's grub2.
