View Full Version : [SOLVED] Merging Partitions

April 6th, 2011, 01:36 AM
Hi, I am a new user with Ubuntu, I previously had Windows 7. My problem is that I installed Ubuntu 10.10 in my laptop and I was using both Win7 and Ubuntu until today that I decided that I donīt need anymore Windows and I want to merge the partition I created for Ubuntu with the partition of Windows.

Below I have the screenshots from Disk Utility.

Thanks for any help

There is a good tutorial for running fdisk on your disks to delete a partition.


Use GParted if it gives you the option of deleting, else run it as super user from the terminal.
