Have you installed Ubuntu as a dual boot setup to live peacefully next to Windows on the same hard drive/computer. And then after some hands on with it, decided that Ubuntu and/or Linux just wasn’t your cup of tea? But now you have Ubuntu installed and appear to be stuck with an unwanted operating system hogging a big chunk of your hard drive’s free space….

Fear not, Ubuntu is easily removable and *hopefully* isn’t something that will require you to loose all of your data under Windows while attempting to remove it. This video wil discuss how to remove the Ubuntu side of a dual boot setup. In this video we will be using a Windows 7/Ubuntu 13.04 dual booting Virtual Box machine.

Demonstrated steps will be:
1- Remove the Grub bootloader via EasyBCD.
2- Delete the Ubuntu & Swap partitions from within Windows.
3- Make sure it all works!

Software needed will be:
– Your Dual Boot (Ubuntu & Windows) machine.
– The Community Edition of EasyBCD from: http://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/

*Anytime you deal with changing operating systems, partitions, hard drives, etc. Always be sure to backup any critical data. As the possibility that things could go wrong is ALWAYS present.

Enjoy!
