I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 along side with Windows XP and then installed Kubuntu 13.04 , both installation took place using USB flash drive. I now want to uninstall Ubuntu and keep Kubuntu along side with windows XP i tried many times to delete the partition which contain Ubuntu installation and booting files but i dont know which one is Ubuntu and which one is for Kubuntu. Anyone can help me !

Output:

You can easily find out by looking at the outputs of the following:

sudo fdisk -l | grep /dev/sd

sudo blkid

cat /etc/fstab | grep UUID

Run these from Kubuntu, note the Kubuntu root partition, and then delete the other.

In case you need help identifying partitions, edit the question, and add the outputs.

  • @mina, add this important info to your question post. It appears you have Ubuntu installed in a single partition, which is ok. If you don't need the data, just re-install in this partition, otherwise create a new logical partition and move your data there. Look here for help : help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving – crafter Aug 31 '13 at 22:12
  • So, one must be for Ubuntu and the other for Kubuntu. To find out which is which, please add the outputs of the other two commands. – mikewhatever Aug 31 '13 at 22:28
