View Full Version : [ubuntu] reinstalling 8.10 with xp dual boot

January 25th, 2009, 10:13 AM
hi all,

i have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop, and a dual boot of windows xp and ubuntu. i primarily use my ubuntu for all my work and home uses as a university student, but i keep my xp installation just in case.. although i haven't used it at all..

what i want to do is reinstall ubuntu without effecting the xp partition, and yet format the EXT3 entirely, and make a fresh install of 9.04 (when it'll come out with EXT4)

i know i'm a little early, but i want to make sure i'll know what i doing before i begin.. it's my working tool, and i can't allow myself loosing it..

BTW, is there a way to suggest anywhere that the ubuntu developers will allow such an option through an upgrade? it will be perfect for situations like this..

thanks it advance.
