Guys, I'm not getting on with Ubuntu, and would like to remove it. I have searched before but they all involve using the Vista/XP install disc. Thing is, my laptop didn't come with one. I have looked for other ways but they aren't working. Please help me out guys. Thanks.

well considering the fact that you are leaving us i fell sorry for you already...but ubuntu is all about freedom so....well im gonna point you in the right direction...look up DaRT for vista or xp!!! that will get you on your way.will see you soon tho! another way would be to do a fresh install over your ubuntu partition and then you will be straight! mbr will be set on vista or whatever you install!!

Or a Vista recovery disk to set your MBR for vista once again ... if you're using Vista.

Good luck and happy ubuntu-ing.

You're welcome.

You know, you could still virtualize or wubi-install Ubuntu ;)

Nevertheless, Good luck and Happy Ubuntu-ing.

I wasn't having issues, I actually liked Ubuntu, but in GRUB I found myself constantly booting into Vista. I wanted some more harddrive space anyway. If I get a new laptop with a bigger HDD (only 80GB at the minute) I would consider reinstalling Ubuntu.

My processor doesn't support virtualizing and I don't fancy the idea of Ubuntu inside Windows.


EDIT; sorry guys double post.
