    Hi, I recommend that you download 13.04 using windows then put the livecd in the drive and choose something else under creating and removing partitions, then remove your ubuntu partitions.

    I always reformat my partitions, but do not touch the widows partitions they should say ntfs.

    After you have removed the ubuntu partitions you can follow the directions in this link for creating new partitions and installing 13.04.

    If you do not remove the ubuntu partitions first then you will end up with 12.04 and 13.04 installed with windows.

    If you have any questions please ask before proceeding.
    Thanks

    Is it a WUBI install (Ubuntu installed on top of Windows as an application when Windows was running)?
    If not sure, please post output of -
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    mount
    ..from Ubuntu.

    Assuming it is a fresh installation of Ubuntu and you don't have any data or applications to save on it, it would be much better to just download the ISO of 13.04, burn it to a DVD (or make a live USB with it), then do a fresh install on its separate partition. It'll be quicker, safer and easier.

    For downloading, I recommend 64-bit via official torrents (to ensure integrity of the downloaded ISO) : http://www.ubuntu.com/download/deskt...tive-downloads


    EDIT:
    I see I'm late to the party (Wild Man ate the cake), but still I'd like to know if it is a WUBI installation. If so, then 'Uninstalling' Ubuntu should be another piece of cake
    Just 'uninstall' it from control panel like you do with any other normal application.

    well sir, will that be ok cause I only have 32 bit,

    I just made a discovery, I see a ubuntu folder in my drive cwindows OS), and saw an uninstall-wubi application, thus that mean it is a wubi installation?
    And I can also see an Icon of ubuntu in remove programs(control panel)

    You have used the Windows-based installer.

    You can remove 12.04 from the Windows "Add/Remove Programs".

    You should burn the 13.04 disc image to a CD or create a bootable USB, and boot your computer from it. When asked, choose "Try Ubuntu". When you get to the desktop, see if your network connection works. Then you can double click the Install Ubuntu icon and follow the on-screen instructions for installing Ubuntu alongside Windows.

    by the way guys, I must tell you something, in the link given by mr. Wild Man, when I installed ubuntu, I was only at step 3, then I think it loaded so long or I restarted it or it rebooted and I booted to windows 7, there in one dialog box, there is choosing sizes, language, and then the username and password, then have to reboot, well I forgot the whole scenario, but I just want to tell you guys cause it might be the cause or something, and maybe that happened because I used universal usb installer, I don't realy know, I'm not an expert at this, ,

    Alright sir, I am currently downloading 13.04 now. Now, can you help me sir how to make a properly bootable usb?
    And there is an option in bios what to boot. I use a flash drive. Then there are two names with my flash drive's name in the option. But the other one have EFI something, sorry I really don't remember.
