    Uninstall help

    Hi, I just installed Ubuntu using the Windows installer and I want to get rid of the boot options menu when I start up my computer.

    I was trying to install Ubuntu onto my flash drive so that I could run it from there on my fiance's computer. Her computer cannot start and we want to backup the important files. Last time I installed Ubuntu I was able to boot from USB drive so I was trying to do the same thing again. My plan was to then access her hard drive which I know still works.

    Unfortunately I did the wrong thing by using the installer and now my computer gives me the option between Windows 7 and Ubuntu. The flash drive has the Ubuntu install files on it so there isn't a partition I can delete. How do I change it back? Thank you very much.

    - Jeff

    If I have understood you correctly, you installed WUBI and put the WUBI virtual partition onto the USB.

    What happens if you boot into Windows and uninstall WUBI?

    In my day, we had outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now we have computers to do those.
