How do you uninstall Ubuntu feisty faun 7.04

Asked by Night Hawk on 2007-09-01

I have been having many problems with Ubuntu feisty faun 7.04 and want to Uninstall it so that I can reinstall it using a CD. I installed it using a CD but the partition edidtor on the CD won't let me delete any partitions. I also tryed using the partition editor but once i select a bootable partition to repartition, it says that it is not a bootable partition. Help!

Hi:

with the live CD you should be able, if not you can try to download the "GParted Live CD" http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php
then put the CD and restart, using the live CD with it you can delete or modify everything.
Hope that helps

ok...i deleted the Ubuntu partition and restarted the computer. the grub now says ERROR 22. my cousin says that it's because the grub has been halfway deleted. I needed my computer so i reinstalled ubuntu. how do i safely uninstall ubunt and the grub? I also do not have the XP CD because i got this laptop off of ebay and it did not come with one.

In order to use your computer you need an Operating System.
If you not own a legal Microsoft Windows XP/Vista, you will need to buy one.
After you get the CD, you will be able to format your disk, and restore MBR and no longer need GRUB or a GNU/Linux Operating System.

You can also use the Ubuntu LiveCD to start GParted, and then manipulate your hard drive.

Remember, what ever your choice is, you will need an OS. Ubuntu is FREE but XP costs more then 100 US Dollars.

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...

Can you help with this problem?
