Are you going back to Windows or do you want to reinstall Ubuntu?

Do you have several operating systems on the same computer? If so you need to be careful not to delete your boot sector, else you will have to do a lot of leg work to recreate it. Otherwise you should be able to reformat right over Ubuntu with Fedora... but I'd recommend sticking with Ubuntu. ;)

You can overwrite it on the partition when you are installing Fedora.

You say it is very slow. May I ask what the specs are of your computer. Just to be sure we dont give you advice on how to delete ubuntu and install fedora over it for no reason. Meaning you might have the same problem.

a guy posted this
"That might be the issue, if you use Jaunty the latest version of Ubuntu there is SERIOUS slowdown on intel graphics cards due to some bad mistakes made by both Intel and the Ubuntu development team.
I too faced slowdown on Jaunty on my machine that also uses a intel graphics card."

That sounds similar to my Toshiba laptop. I haven't noticed it being slow or anything like that. (Mind you, I haven't asked the Ubuntu part of it to do much that's cpu intensive) Perhaps there are some tweaks that might be helpful, e.g. emptying the trash, cleaning out temporary files etc.

Ya you should be able to use fedora with out a problem then. Surprised you have had problems with Ubuntu. Although you did mention Intel graphics Card. You may want to try this tutorial out, it helped mine out tremendously.

Yes you can. When it gets to the part of partitioning (if you dont have anything else on the HDD, then just select the whole partition. Fedora will re-write over Ubuntu.

Yes just select the Ubuntu partition then. Make sure you write over on the right partition since you also have windows on it.

cool, glad I could help with that. As far as what is Jaunty, and anything else that has to do with ubuntu. Each Ubuntu release has a version number as well as a Code name, nick name or whatever it may be. for example:


* Ubuntu 6.06.2 LTS (Dapper Drake)
* Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft)
* Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)
* Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)
* Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS (Hardy Heron)
* Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex)
* Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)
