I would like to remove my Ubuntu which is dual-booting with windows 7.

I don't remember how I installed it, but the Ubuntu partition does not appear on the Disk Management. (Have a SYSTEM partition of 2GB, what is that?)

I installed the EasyBCD to remove Ubuntu from the boot menu, but after a restart the boot menu is still there with the Ubuntu option, and reappears in the EasyBCD after I deleted it. I have no idea what to do now, can any one suggest anything. I really prefer not to format the drive.

Thanks for any help.


If you have a live-CD or live-USB of Ubuntu, you can boot into that and use GParted to remove the linux partition and extend into the unallocated space, as Nayanna has suggested or follow the same procedure and reformat the linux partition to NTFS or FAT .. something that Windows will recognize, effectively giving you two partitions, one for Win system files and one for storage (my personal choice is 2 partitions).

If you do have the live-medium available but GParted is not included, you can use the Ubuntu Software Center or the terminal command sudo apt-get install gparted to get it. Here is a link to an informative tutorial on GParted, if you are not familiar: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/gparted.html


1)If you have installed ubuntu inside windows(using wubi)

Goto Control panel-> Uninstall a program and Uninstall ubuntu entry

2)If you insall ubuntu in dual- boot

Delete the Linux partition from disk management Then Extend the partition to current windows partition Boot windows from recovery disk Choose "Repair Your Computer," go to "Troubleshoot," and then enter a Command Prompt. Type the following command

 bootrec.exe /fixmbr

Then reboot your computer For more details refer this link http://lifehacker.com/how-to-uninstall-windows-or-linux-after-dual-booting-508710422
