Removing older OS. SOLVED

Postby jaysee on Wed Jun 26, 2013 11:12 am

Hi,
Hope this is the right forum. I have a Mint/Windows 7 box, and have just upgraded from Mint 10 to Mint 15. As I was worried about losing the Windows installation, I installed 15 alongside existing systems. Everything is working fine, and I transferred all my files from 10 to 15 via an external drive. Problem is, I don't know how to delete Mint 10 (perhaps that should read 'say goodbye and thank you to Julia'). Any help would be much appreciated.

John.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you go into gparted you can either delete that partition and then merge the space with another partition (from a live session!) or you can repartition and reinstall Mint 15.

Thank you TBABill, I will fire up gparted and venture into pastures new. I have my back-up ready should I muck it up big time!

Thanks again TBABill. Problem now sorted - and a little knowledge gained.
