Resize Ubuntu partition to fill HD on Dual Boot Box

Asked by D Rock on 2007-05-08

Ok, I'm new to Linux. I installed Kubuntu Feisty onto my laptop as a dual-boot to my exsisting Windows XP installation. Problem is, I'm loving Kubuntu too much. Never thought I'd have so much fun. The problem however fills me with dread.

How do I resize my Ubuntu partition to remove windows XP off my computer? I realize that a fresh install would probably be the easiest way, but after the problems I had installing NDIS wrapper to get my wireless to work, I don't want to go through that mess again. Is it possible (and please say easy) to resize off the WinXP part so I'm all Kubuntu?

Thanks for your question.

To be short: It is possible. :-)

The easyiest way I can think of:

1) Download the GParted Live-CD (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php), burn it and boot it.
2) Delete the Windows NTFS Partition(s)
3) Resize your / partition

It all depends on how your drive(s) are partitioned. If you're experiencing problems, don't hesitate to ask again.
