I accidently download ubuntu twice thinking I made a mistake, so I need to know how to delete one of them.

If you downloaded it to your computer, just delete the duplicate file.

Did you end up installing it twice?

You mean you have donwloaded two ISO of Ubuntu from the website?

Are you talking about two partitions?

I am assuming that you downloaded the .iso for Ubuntu 8.04 via the "Get Ubuntu" page on ubuntu.com, and that you downloaded a duplicate copy.

Check to see where your web browser is putting your downloads. Then look for the files that you downloaded, and delete one of them. To identify the files, look for the following:


Name: They should both say "Ubuntu" something-or-other, and if you can check your download history you can see what the exact names were.
Size: They should be very large files, about 700 MB if you downloaded the normal version.
Extension: Your computer should say that they are ISO files.


If one of the files is about 700 MB and another is smaller, it's because you canceled the download on the smaller one. Delete it, and not the larger file.

Let us know if this doesn't help!

Please go to Terminal and post the output of:


sudo fdisk -l

BTW, that's a lower case L at the end!
