View Full Version : [ubuntu] Whered the harddrive go ?

August 25th, 2009, 02:03 PM
So I installed Ubuntu. Something went wrong with my installation , basically I cocked it up, and now my windows harddrive is showing a lostt of 120 gb, but my ubuntu partition is only 30 gigs. So I want to wipe unbuntu from my dual boot machine , get my vista partition back to 320 gb and then reinstall ubuntu properly. Any suggestions ?

run the partition tool from the live cd

pop in the livecd for ubuntu and go to system>admin>partition editor...here you will be able to see all hdd and partitions on your system...you will see the ubuntu partition and vista partition. Vista cannot read the ext2/3 or 4 filesystem's. after you are at the partition screen you will be able to delete partitions to unallocated and then add them back to vista...once that is done i recommend you boot into vista and use the disk management tool to create another partition for ubuntu then boot back into the live cd and do a Manual install and select the right partition and you should be golden!
