I was trying to get rid of the old Windows partition on my computer and just have the Ubuntu 12.04 one. I used GParted to delete the old partition and resize the current Linux. The problem is when I go into devices I see my "OS" hard drive, I right-click to mount it, and it does nothing as if I never clicked it. Please help.

do you want to delete which partition? – Avinash Raj Apr 20 '14 at 4:47
It looks like you deleted linux, and set the drive for windows. It also seems there is still the windows recovery partition. – Elliott Frisch Apr 20 '14 at 4:48
I wanted to delete the windows partition and give the space to the linux to partition since i am gonna run this as my main operating system from now on – user268962 Apr 20 '14 at 4:49

Based on what you have said in the comments (nothing important on the drive), just do a clean install of your operating system. I'd probably choose 14.04 over 12.04, but both are supported - just select "use entire drive".
