Uninstall os linux ubuntu 13.10 from my laptop


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.
good luck!

Hi, you will have to perform a fresh install, unless you chose the NTFS file system while installing Ubuntu. Follow these steps:

0. ...BACK UP IMPORTANT FILES...
1. Have your windows installation media handy, either on a disc or USB, you can also use factory reset on your laptop but only if you did not format your recovery partition.
2. Insert your media and reboot your computer
3. Press any key when prompted to run setup
4. If you don't see the prompt, restart your computer and press F12 to select boot options. Choose your Optical Drive or USB.
4b. Alternatively you can just change your media boot order from the Bios setup.
5. Let windows setup guide you through the install process. Format disk partitions if necessary.
6. Windows setup will run its course, it may restart your computer a few times, which is okay.
7. Once setup completes you will automatically boot into windows to complete activation and set-up user accounts.

Thanks, All the best

Hi, when I start my lap top with Ubuntu 10, it even doesnt offer log in and writes this kind of things: mount: mounting/ proc on / root/ proc failed: No such file on directory Target filesystem...


This indicates the the root file system has been damaged in some fashion, removing the init program and destroying the /proc directory, and possibly others as well. The only real solution is to try to reinstall. If the problem reoccurs frequently, you may have a damaged hard drive.

WINXP-_CRASH


I wonder if you ever pay attention to what you're doing; if you install a Linux Distribution, it's going to have a non-NTFS boot sector, and moving Windows' original boot sectors around is not guaranteed to work well.

If you pay attention to what you're doing, you should be installing Linux on a fresh disk using a good filesystem like ext3 or ext4 or Sun's filesystem. If you want to run WinXP rather than run applications (games, etc.) under WINE or a VM, you can use Disk Commander or such to boot to the old drive and mask the OS from each others' existence. Likewise you could install, run, etc. Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. from within a VM in WinXP; or install, run, etc. WinXP within a VM in a Linux. If you don't pay attention to what your install means for the system operation, you're going to get surprised.

How to Install both XP and Linux?


Hi,
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.

Ubuntu Installation


If your able to see the Windows Setup page, and get as far as your partitions, I would suggest deleting the partitions on the hard drive (make sure you know what your doing before trying this), as Ubuntu is mounted normally on a filesystem which Windows can not read (EXT2/3 for Linux - Fat32 / NTFS for Windows).

Once you have deleted all partitions, you can then create a partition (I'd recommend just clicking Install) and then chose the second option to format (not quick) for NTFS.

This then does a "secure" format of your hard drive, setting you up for a nice stable installation.

Apart from that, why don't you try jumping onto Ubuntuforums.org for Ubuntu Help, since Ubuntu is a much better Operating System (OS) than Windows, and there is a great community for helping people.

How do i use ubuntu fixing ntfs file system?


Use apt-get from the terminal to install the ntfsprogs package - sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs

Then you can use the tool ntfsfix from the terminal to attempt to repair a ntfs partition.

Example:
* unmount the drive if it's mounted already
sudo umount /dev/sda1 - read below for device naming info
then type: sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda1

Note:
A typical home pc or laptop has 2 or 4 IDE channels as follows:
  • ide0 = primary
  • ide1 = secondary
  • ide2 = tertiary
  • ide3 = quaternary
For example:
  • ide0 = primary master = hda
  • ide1 = primary slave = hdb
  • ide2 = secondary master = hdc
  • ide3 = secondary slave = hdd
  • sata0 = 1st sata device = sda
  • sata1 = 2nd sata device = sdb
and so on...
SCSI & SATA devices are listed as devices sda, sdb, sdc, sdd, sde, sdf, etc. in the /dev directory. Similarly, partitions on these disks can range from 1 to 16 and are also in the /dev directory.
Now each hard drive has 4 primary partitions (limit of PC x86 architecture). First partition is denoted by number 1. For example:
  • First partition : /dev/hda1
  • Second partition : /dev/hda2
  • Third partition : /dev/hda3
  • Fourth partition : /dev/hda4
  • sata0 device, 1st partition: /dev/sda1
  • sata1 device, 1st partition: /dev/sdb1
And so on.
You can run command fdisk -l (lowercase L) to display a list of partitions:

WARNING! These examples may result in data loss. Use fdisk command with caution as it can manipulate / overwrite your partition table.

Upgrade Ubuntu Error


-While booting your grub bootloader, press "e", enter the edit mode.

-Press "e" on the first line.

-(hd0,0) Change the last 0 to a 2, so it reads: (hd0,2).

-Press ‘b’ to boot.

Good luck.
