    Ubuntu/MythTV dualboot question

    How do I safely remove MythTV from a Ubuntu/MythTV dualboot system?

    I have found plenty of info to remove linux from windows but that is not what I'm doing.

    Thanks

    I didn't know there was a stand-alone MythTV OS. Are you talking about Mythbuntu, Mythdora, or some other MythTV/OS-bundled system?
    If you are asking about a problem with your system, make sure to give details about your setup. OTHERWISE, NO ONE CAN HELP YOU.

    This may work.

    Or just this:
    Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot.:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair
    You can repair many boot issues with this or 'Create BootInfo' report (Other Options) & post the link it creates, so we can see your exact configuration and diagnose advanced problems.

    But if you have multiple Ubuntu or other Linux installs, boot into the one you want to keep and run this to have its boot loader in the MBR.

    #reinstall from working (not liveCD) system - first find Ubuntu drive (example is drive sda but use your drive not partitions):
    sudo fdisk -l
    #if it's "/dev/sda" then just run:
    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    #If that returns any errors run:
    sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda
    sudo update-grub
