Changing from Xandros to Ubuntu, Help please!
Hey, new forum user here! I'm very computer literate but some of the more in depth stuff is lost on me so take it easy!
Here's the thing: I got Xandros as a freebie on a magazine and have been using it a fair bit, but I don't think it suits me quite right and I want to try something else like Ubuntu. My dilemma is that I don't know how to uninstall it. Xandros itself doesnt seem to provide any way of uninstalling, so I thought I should delete the partition. New dilemma: I've never done anything with partitions before. I downloaded a partition manager but it didn't recognise the Xandros partition. So I continued the search and found out how do it with MS-DOS and a programme called diskpart. When I got it to list the partitions it showed 4...
Partition 1 - Primary - 43GB
Partition 2 - Extended - 13GB
Partition 3 - Logical - 1505MB
Partition 4 - Logical - 11GB
I've read a bit and gathered that i need to get rid of the two logicals then the extended.
Now, finally, here's my question: is this safe? Or: is there an easier way to do this?
Any help would be appreciated
