I have Elementary OS installed along with windows 8.1. I want to uninstall Elementary OS and install Ubuntu. How can I do that? I searched Google for any relevant article or link but couldn't help myself. Please guide me through the whole procedure.
It's simple. Boot to the Ubuntu LiveISO and choose the Do Something Else option.
Follow the GUI prompts and pick the partition with the OS you want to remove the install partition.
When you pick the partition, you'll have the option of reformating the partition. Of course reformating the partition will remove all the files from your previous OS. If you choose not to reformat the drive, the installer will remove the system directories and replace them with Ubuntu.
If you choose not to format, your
/home folder will be preserved.
If you are trying to preserve your home folder, you might consider renaming that folder before the install. Some of the configurations files in the
Elementry OS might conflict with some of the options in the Ubuntu configuration.
You can later copy your documents to the new
home folder created.
