I tried to just run my Win7 disk, along with various other tidbits that would change anything on the system (network setup, adding a printer, so on and so forth.... whole reason I'm trying to remove Kubuntu in the first place, because it is a major p.i.t.a.) and it said i need admin capabilities. So, Logically I figured that I had to remove the password for the root user and / or remove the account completely from the computer and just boot as a root user. Tried both, neither worked. i have a slight theoretical knowledge of Linux, but no knowledge of actually using the system (besides fedora 17... and that was just to brute force wifi. lol)
I've tried every variant of the passwd command i could think of, nothing seemed to work. (e.g. (x's being the username): passwd -d xx xx, passwd -d Xx Xx, passwd xx xx -d passwd Xx Xx -d.... also including sudo before each variant, just incase... you get the idea... lol) Every time, Without fail, i get this:
Usage: passwd [options] [LOGIN]
this is a long list of boring letters and crap explaining different commands.
So. if there is any way to just wipe the computer or something to that effect that can make this go away, i would be okay with just doing that. Short of smashing it, or covering it in neodymium magnets, because i have already disapproved of those.... lol. Any ideas would really be welcome...
