View Full Version : [ubuntu] Removing windows

August 16th, 2010, 06:32 PM
Well iv been using Ubuntu 9.10 now for six months,had a few problems getting the wireless to work properly but its all sorted now.
Iv not used windows on it for a few months so i want to remove windows off the hard drive and give the space back to unbuntu, how do i do this?
Also i want to remove the grub boot so the laptop just boots straight to ubuntu.

Thank you any help offer, Chris

not sure about grub. You could always just reduce the GRUB_TIMEOUT value to say 1 (or possibly zero?)

save and then run

Thank you for that, its a very good starting point and will sort out windows no problem. Just grub now.

Many thanks
