Simplifying a Complicated Arrangement
Over time, my system has morphed into a rather complicated arrangement, which I'd like to simplify. Any help would be much appreciated! Here's what I have:
C:\XP, PCLinuxOS (sda5, swap, sda7)
D:\Vista, Ubuntu 8.04 (sdb2, swap, sdb4)
Installation order: XP, Vista, PCLinuxOS, Ubuntu.
Before I installed Ubuntu, my boot menu was configured with EasyBCD like this:
When I installed Ubuntu EasyBCD wouldn't recognize Ubuntu's Grub installed to its own boot partition on the D:\ drive so I had to install it to PCLinuxOS' boot sector (sda5), where it overwrote the old Grub menu with it's own. It now presents both Linux distros and I can choose between the two.
Boot menu now goes like this:
Linux > then choose Ubuntu or PCLinuxOS
My issue now is that I'd like to get rid of PCLinuxOS and keep Ubuntu, preferably moving Ubuntu's partitions to the C:\ drive. This would obviously blow away the current bootloader in sda5 and render Ubuntu unbootable and who knows what other complications would arise.
I hope this is all clear...... Any ideas on how to simplify this whole arrangement (yes I want to keep XP/Vista!)?
