How to uninstall Ubuntu?

shaurya boogie August 28, 2012

I recently installed Ubuntu with Windows 7, but I did it a bit wrong. I don’t know the installation folder of Ubuntu. How can I find its location and uninstall it to install it again?

    you can first go to the folder where windows is installed.
    check there many apps and os are automatically put there.
    delete everthing there.
    ubuntu might be deleted or might be your windows 7 !

    If you have installed ubuntu from Windows, you can just go to, Control panel>Add or remove programs and then uninstall ubuntu. But rremember to backup your data from your ubuntu documents and desktop.

    Generally there are only two ways install Ubuntu along with windows 7
    1.Wubi Installation (installing Ubuntu as like other application inside windows os).
    here is the link [Broken Link Removed]
    2. Normal installation(installing Ubuntu on another partition, nothing to do with widows os except the boot loader in MBR)
    here is the link [Broken Link Removed]

    If you done the first one just goto control panel of windows 7 and un-install ubuntu, that’s it.
    For second one
    On windows 7 desktop,Right-click on my computer-> goto manage-> select disk management from storage option. Then look for the drive with no drive latter like (c, d,etc). then right-click on that drive and select delete drive(s). then insert windows 7 dvd into the DVD rom drive and boot that up. click repair windows option or similar option, then select startup repair. That’s it.

    Boot a live CD with Ubuntu
    Choose "Try Ubuntu"
    Download and install OS-Uninstaller.
    Start the software and select what operating system you want to uninstall.
    When all is over, reboot your computer, and voila, only windows is on your computer!

    if you are able t run both windows 7 and ubuntu, it means that ubuntu is on another partition, find it and format the partition

    You can directly install it again without uninstall the operating system. When you try to install you will find a partition which like "/" or "/home" and "/etc" which begin with "/" it is a linux partition, so you can directly install into it.

    If you installed it with Wubi, just go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features, find Ubuntu in the list and uninstall it. Everything is automatic from that point. If you booted from an install CD or LiveCD, it resides in its own partition (not a folder). How you unnstall it depends on what you are using for your boot manager. If you are still using the Windows boot manager, you can use EasyBCD to remove the boot entry from the menu and then delete the partition where you installed Ubuntu. If you are using GRUB2, you can delete the partition where you installed Ubuntu then boot your machine with your Windows 7 installation disk and have it repair your boot files. If you are unsure which partition holds your Linux installation, you can go to Disk Management and look for the partition that is unrecognizable to Windows.

    Did you try a dual install via Wubi? If so, you can simply uninstall that. (As far as I know.)
