Thread: Finally tried ubuntu now i want it off my HDD

    Default Finally tried ubuntu now i want it off my HDD

    OK so i have both opensuse 10.3 and ubuntu hardy heron on my hard drive. i get this not so eye pleasing grub boot loader (i think thats what its called) that gives me the option to choose operating systems.

    How do i get rid of ubuntu and the boot loader without disrupting opensuse?

    Boot to SuSE, go to YAST / Boot Loader and choose to reinstall grub/boot loader?

    Hi,

    Alternatively, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and remove from it those stanzas corresponding to Ubuntu.

    That above will only hide the ubuntu menu entries.
    If you also want to wipe the partitions in your disk currently assigned to Ubuntu, take note of the partitions device names, check that none of them is mounted and use parted or fdisk to remove them. You may need to reboot the system to have the kernel load the partition table or better yet, run partprobe.

    You can also customize gfxmenu (hd0,0)/message to your liking, but that is another issue.

    Hope this helps.
