View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading Dual-Boot Windoze/9.10 to Windoze/10.04 advice please

June 7th, 2011, 08:23 PM

I've allowed my Ubuntu Laptop to go out-of-support & want to quick 'n dirty upgrade to 10.04 by clicking on the Update Manager "Upgrade" button to 10.04.02..(so I'm supported again & start getting security updates again...) but..

I run dual-boot , 3 partitions (Windoze[Vista Home Prem from Dell], Data, Ubuntu) system.

If I click on the "Upgrade" button is that likely to work ok..(ie not destroy the Windows system or the data partition..) or would I be better advised to do a fresh install (of 11.04 probably..)???

I've always done fresh installs before but ain't touched the systems, as you can tell, for quite some time...

Regards & thanks in advance..

10o4 is a stable release, so shouldn't be a problem

edit: if you do this, i would suggest not to upgrade grub (an option during upgrade). this option can break things
