Remove LM17.1 from triple boot (Solved)

Post by katman » Fri Nov 09, 2018 6:13 pm

Help Needed
At present time running LM17.1, LM19. and Windows XP in triple boot configuration.
I want to remove LM17.1 and keep the Windows XP and LM 19.
Here is the hard drive information:

Code: Select all

katman104@katman104-MS-7267:~$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for katman104:

I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x74487448

/dev/sdb1              63 220569960 220569898 105.2G  7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sdb2       319533056 625141759 305608704 145.7G 83 Linux
/dev/sdb3       220571646 319533055  98961410  47.2G  5 Extended
/dev/sdb5       220571648 319533055  98961408  47.2G 83 Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order.
Need Step by step since I am not to experienced with using the terminal commands.
Trying to make sure that I do not destroy the LM 19 or XP.
Have the LM 19 data backed up but not WIN XP.

Thanks in advance for any help to do this.
Could not find this exact example after much reading.

I would boot to a mint live (install) usb/dvd .iso and open gparted
to determine the no longer wanted partitions and delete them there.

and then remove the entry for LM17x from the Grub Boot Menu,
- you may have to do that manually, if the sudo update-grub won't do that.
