View Full Version : [ubuntu] from dual to mono

March 21st, 2010, 01:06 AM
I do not want windows 7 purely on principal.
i curently have a HP g60 notebook PC with Win7 pre-installed and a series of vista booters

1: if i overwrite all the windows bits will there be problems?
2: can i extend the Ubuntu partition without damaging my files?

I heard rumors of MS bugs that make computers dificult to load/boot ubuntu when windows 7 is overwiritten.

please help

P.S. how different is Ubuntu from Debian? im thinking a posable dual boot with debian

I would convert to a data partition. Moving the start of bootable partitions sometimes can lead to problems and is a very slow process as all data has to be moved.
