So I am trying to uninstall Ubuntu Linux from my mac. I am trying to use the Live USB to go into the gparted app to delete the linux partitions.
Although, something strange is happening. When my Live USB is plugged in, and I restart my macbook and hold the option key in the start up screen, I get two hard drive icons. One says windows (which is the linux partition), and the other one is reFit. I choose reFit and then I choose boot from legacy (it is the new icon that pops out and it even has an icon telling me it is an external not internal hard drive). However, when I enter it, the linux installer screen does not show up. Instead, I am asked if I want to boot linux normally, recovery mode, and all those other options. When I choose to start normally, it takes me to my old login screen and has my username and all my ** in there. IT IS NOT THE LINUX INSTALLER FROM MY LIVE USB! IT IS THE ACTUAL LINUX PARTITION. The same happens when I choose all other linux icons I get on my start up screen.
why is this? why is linux reading my live USB like as if it were the actual linux partition on my mac? I really do want to uninstall linux from my mac.
(I set it to dual booted. and I have uninstalled it before and installed it again using the same Live USB. It worked before why not 6 months later?)
