Worked like a charm. I had sync problems following the accepted answer, but not with this one.

Thank you, sir. And to everybody who helped. I'm back to my old Ubuntu and the new one is finally gone. :)

Re: where the boot process stops. It doesn't even start, it seems. All that appears in the screen is: "error: no such partition. \n grub rescue>" and a prompt. I'd learn how to take a screenshot from command line but there's nothing more than that, really. I'll try to change fstab now.

@MichaelK I updated it with that info. I created a second swap for the second Ubuntu install. But I no longer have it, as I deleted the partitions sda4,sda5,sda6,sda7,sda8 following previous answers. I also added the output from Boot-Repair, got while I am on the live-USB.

I mean, I never used Wubi I think. Ubuntu is my main OS, and I installed it using the distribution from ubuntu.org. Windows came only these days.

For some reason that did not work. I deleted the partitions, ran update-grub and restarted. GRUB is borked again and I am on the Live CD.

No, I just created a new partition, booted from Windows CD and installed it.

I did that. Deleted partitions from new Ubuntu using gparted, then ran update-grub. Now I'm on the Live CD because GRUB got borked again. :-(

I updated the question with the contents of /etc/fstab. I'm not sure if I have anything to comment out from there. When I run update-grub, it finds the new Ubuntu on /dev/sda6. I need to discover how to make GRUB ignore that one.

sda1 and sda3are the ones I want to keep, so I'll take that you mean sda4 to sda8. These latter ones are all close to each other in the disk, and I can merge to sda1 in the end (the space was taken from sda1 for the new Ubuntu install).
