Is it possible to remove the dual boot without running the recovery via the XP cd. I have two HDS one with XP runs fine, the other with PCLinux which for some reason will not boot up. I would idealy like to reformat the second HD and install either ubuntu of kubuntu.
No joy there so far patch999. I had the same prob ages ago when I tried another disto of Linux and getting rid of the duel boot was as I recall a real pain, and I can't remember how I did it. I can reformat the second HD via Control Panel. Admin Tools. Computer management. Storage. Disc Management. But that won't get rid of the dual boot. I'm loathed to use XP recovery as its screwed up before.
