Are you dual booting? Windows and Ubuntu? What version of Windows? You maybe able to reclaim the space by using the Disk Management (right click "My Computer" select Manage then select Disk Management). In there you will see NTFS for your Windows partitions, and something like Unknown for the linux ones, you can then delete the linux partition and possibly extend your NTFS partition to use the free space (depending on version of windows).
If this is a standalone Ubuntu install, you should be able to just use the installer disk for another OS and boot it to reformat the drive.
Hi enoonoo Even though the product claims to be compatible with Windows and Linux, it has 1/ no drivers for any Linux system and 2/ does not work with Vista / Windows 7 . It is useless , it will just don't work anymore . You can always create a network , sharing all machines via a gateway . It also works between different OS versions like sharing a W7 unit with an XP one . Best regards , fanaudi .
it is very hard for me to help someone that wants to get rid of LINUX :( ...but I'm a proffessional and I'm letting my feelings aside ha!
Firs is your MBR was created with UBUNTU or Windows (in other words when you boot is it a windows menu or a LINUX menu) that lets you choose the boot options? if it's LINUX you have to use a LINUX base partition editor to edit the MBR (the way the system will boot), if it's a Windows MBR then you normally ave to delete the LINUX partiton... (if Windows can not delete it you can use a LINUX base disk partitioner) be extra prudent using disk partition editors, if you do not understand what you do you can LOSE data...
Regarding on your problem, the main issue their is the booting problem of XP after you delete the fedora operating system. That's common problem especially when the computer are in dual boot OS then you delete the other OS. Now, the reason why it usually fall into this problem its just because the XP is your core OS then you install Linux Fedora inside in XP so whatever changes you have done in fedora particularly deleting Linux OS inside XP affects the overall performance of your XP and eventually if you delete the Fedora without proper unistallation process done by Linux OS then the Boot Loader of your XP will also corrupt or delete that's the main cause of boot failure in your XP OS. Now the best solution there is to repair your XP by inserting the XP CD Installer and boot the CD to repair your OS or you can reinstall the XP OS without formatting the storage to prevent the lost of your data that has not yet already copyed a back up.
Please do this recommendation to save and restore your XP.
Yes, you can have multiple OS's on the same hard drive, and partition. I've seen it and have done it before to my machines. You can choose at the boot menu which one you want (when installed), and can run Linux or XP, Vista, Mac OS... my personal favorite is a small OS called "SliTaz". It's a light, Linux-based OS that is very functionable to the user.
Well small OS doesnt not mean a Usable OS (as far as modern standards are concerned)
The smallest OS's are of course, DOS, windows 3.1, OS2, Windows 95 and Linux (due to its modular design it is very scalable)
However the average person is not going to be able to do much on these operating systems, the only small OS that is really usuable is Linux but requires a great deal of time investment to learn and use.
Windows XP is your best bet for a modern OS that will allow you to do everything (multimedia, games, entertainment and software compatability)
However i wouldent call windows XP a small os, just smaller then vista.
possibly by first creating a new partition large enough for Linux OS, but does not solve your problem...try getting a VISTA startup disc from another pc (floppies if you have the drive) and startup from these.
