Yesterday, I downloaded and installed a Ubuntu 13.04 (using the minimised CD) on a Revo. Everything worked fine, I quited liked it (pretty new to Linux), and I thought I'd add it to my PC as a dual boot with Windows 8.
So, I put the same CD in my PC, ran through the install, selecting exactly the same options (except for the dual boot), but it's different. When I booted (selecting Ubuntu from the GRUB menu), I was presented with a screen saying
From what I understand it is designed primarily for machines that do not have the recommended specs for Ubuntu, but not only is my PC considerably more powerful than the Revo, I was never offered a choice.
First and foremost, can anyone explain why this would have been installed and not the proper version of Ubuntu? And I'd like to reiterate - until I started booting, Xubuntu had not been mentioned, and and was certainly not asked if I'd like to install that instead.
Next, I wonder how I can safely remove it? I'd like to not have to faff about fixing my MBR, so is there a way to safely remove Xununtu without affecting it? Thanks.
