    Post Xubuntu Reinstallation Problems.

    Alright. Now I installed Xubuntu along side with Windows 7 on my netbook, although now my Windows is fucked, and I can't even REINSTALL so I can take the partition back, and use the entire drive for my computer. I am not even able to reboot with a disk without the grub popping up saying all of my options, which are
    Code:
    Ubuntu (normal boot)
    Ubuntu (recovery)
    memory test (1)
    memory test (2)
    Windows Vista Loader
    Windows 7 Loader
    Alright, now I want all of it gone excluding memory test and Xubuntu... How would I do this. My netbook has a USB External Optical Drive attached, that is recognized by my BIOS settings. I am unable to find the drive within Xubuntu though... How would I go about reformatting everything?

    Why do you use Linux?
    I don't think it's useful.

    Boot into vista and erase the other partitions. Explore them first and backup any important data you have.

    That is the problem... Only working OS is Xubuntu Vista Loader is deleted, and the Windows 7 doesn't work for some reason... Only one hard drive... I do have other disks, and I CAN burn RedHat?



    Edit:

    Vista loader isn't vista... It is Acer eRecovery thangy


    Problem solved, reformatting the entire drive using Acer eRecover Thangy... Appears to be built into the computer Thanks and +Rep is in order for sir!

    If your loader isnt working properly you should try resetting your MBR.
