I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed onto my dual-boot system; how can I uninstall it?


Which partition(s) should I delete? As you can see, I have two used/Full up 'Other' partitions and one ext4 partition. The two other partitions have the partition id: (0x82) and the ext4 partition has: (0x83).

How can I safely uninstall Ubuntu, without screwing up the bootloader) (I found a program somewhere which can fix the Windows bootloader but forgot the name)

The two other partitions can be actually a partition with a filesystem which the program (I guess it is easeus) can't recognize or they may not contain a filesystem itself.

I would first two run Windows startup recovery (from Windows 7 DVD) to set the Windows bootmanager the default and then remove the two "unknown" partition and one Ubuntu ext4 partition.

I don't think I have access to recovery media/USB sticks at this time. Is there another way to fix this without using recovery media? The software which I found for the bootloader was called EasyBCD, if that helps. –  SkyX Oct 1 '12 at 17:07
