Linux Mint 11 - uninstall-wubi problem

Postby vnepo238 on Mon Jun 25, 2012 10:19 am

Hello, I uninstalled Linux Mint 11 through the Windows 7 uninstall programs feature (i installed Linux Mint 11 using wubi.exe), however after reboot the option to boot into Linux Mint is still showing up (windows boot menu) and I'm still able to run Linux Mint 11.

I checked through my hard drive and noticed that the folder c:\linuxmint it still there. I tried to run c:\linuxmint\uninstall-wubi.exe and nothing happens.

How do I remove Linux Mint 11 completely from the boot menu and all the data of Linux Mint?


Thank you.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Maybe Revo Uninstaller can remove the mint4win?

CCleaner can be handy also.

I presume you mean mint4win

Please see http://usbtux.hostzi.com/How_to and specifically http://usbtux.hostzi.com/mint4win

Uninstall Linux Mint

If you that you don’t want to keep Linux Mint, you can easily uninstall it just like you would any other program installed in Windows. Open Control Panel, select Uninstall a program, and then browse to the Linux Mint entry. Click Uninstall/Change in the toolbar.

You can of course start the mint4win program tell it to install and it will remove the existing install before asking you to install again at this point press cancel
