    Exclamation How to un-instal a distro

    I have so many attempts with various distros of Linux. How does one remove/uninstal a distro from a PC? I'd like to clean mine up.

    Depending on what OS you want to keep, you should have some options to expand your partition for that OS to take over the space occupied by the others. Windows 7 and Ubuntu both of similar options if I recall (not 100% sure on ubuntu though).

    Use GParted or something (: Did you name each of the partitions a unique name? It'd make it much easier to wipe them. Then you can erase them from the bootloader.

    Thanks to you all.
    I downloaded a freebie from the web and cleaned it up.

    I'll be more careful next time.
