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)

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.

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
Windows Recoery Media is not needed if you can still boot Windows (as it looks from the description). Tools like bcdboot and bootrec can be run from within Windows. –  LiveWireBT Dec 15 '14 at 14:24
