This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please define "alongside". Did you use Wubi to install it from within Windows or did you boot to a CD and install it in a new partition? – Oli Sep 8 '12 at 13:59

Simply use OS-Uninstaller from a liveCD or liveUSB disk.

Installed Ubuntu inside Windows using WUBI

Run the uninstaller in Control Panel > *Programs and Features*or alternatively, you can run: C:\ubuntu\Uninstall-Ubuntu.exe.

In case it fails, download Uninstall-Ubuntu.exe.

Installed Ubuntu on separate partition

  • Boot using a LiveUSB.

  • Open a new terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T), then type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/os-uninstaller
  • Press Enter.

  • Then type:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y os-uninstaller && os-uninstaller
  • Press Enter.

  • The OS-Uninstaller window will pop out.
