OS removal

Postby notlurking » Tue Feb 05, 2013 6:17 pm

Hi folks. I have Ubuntu, Mint, Bodhi and Windows 7 in my computer. I would like to just remove Bodhi. I have an idea of what to do, but wanted to get more suggestions. Thanks

If it was me would just edit the grub and remove the bodhi from it. That is assuming you have grub installed on 1st drive.

Then can just reuse the bodhi partition(s) for another distro and clean install over them. Formatting them as I go.
Or delete partion(s) to be unallocated to resize for other partitions if need be.
Or just make into a ntfs data partition that can be accessed by all OS'es.

Depends what your intent is for the space.

Thanks for response. I would go with the first suggestion. Can you please guide me on the edit process. I'm assuming I could do this using gparted.

No you boot up into linux and edit grub list from within linux desktop.

Just follow other thread to do it. Depends on which distro you are using
