I have Ubuntu dual booting with Windows 7 on my laptop.

I ran into an issue with mounting the encrypted folders, it just won't boot. I want to downgrade to 12.04. What is the best way to uninstall 12.10 and install 12.04 in it's place?

I have separate partitions for boot, root, swap, and home. I would like to leave Windows intact.

I would do this one command reinstall (sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh -a), but I need to downgrade in the process. – Jordan March Dec 3 '12 at 6:13
