    changing distro on a dual boot machine

    Hi all, I have been dual booting kubuntu 14.04 and windows 8.1 for about a year now with the ultimate intention of breaking away from windows. However, I have had so many difficulties with kubuntu that I am now using windows for the majority of the time.

    I therefore experimented with deepin 14.2 on my backup laptop and have found it does exactly what I need with ease.

    I want to basically remove kubuntu and replace it with Deepin without losing windows 8.1 because it takes so damn long to reinstall!

    I don't really know how to go about doing this so wondered if anyone out there can help ?

    Thanks, Matt

    Hi, Matt. You may format kubuntu partitions from deepin installer and install it on them. It will also install and configure grub for you.

    i've never used deepin, and kubuntu only minimally, but just give the deepin installer your kubuntu partition to install on - should work, right? all distros I think will simply format the / partition, so that'll get rid of your kubuntu - now all you have to do is make sure your bootloader gets written properly, and has options for both deepin and win, but unfortunately, as i said, since i've never used deepin, i don't know..... as thirtynine said, then....
