why do you tink there would be any problems? just delete the partitions you don't want.
only thing i would mention is that if you outright delete a partition, other partitions may renumber themselves after reboot, causing issues, but if you're actually just looking to get the space back, don't delete the partition. change the fs type to whatever you wat and then just format it.
"I have a 13gb hard drive with a 7.45 GB /dev/hda windows.
My question is there any way to delete the windows and save
If I understand you correctly, you have two partitions. One partition has Ubuntu and the other has Windows. You want to erase Windows. If Windows is the first partition then Windows is on /dev/hda1 and Ubuntu is on /dev/hda2.
If my description of your configuration is correct then you can eliminate Windows by booting into Linux and formating the Windows partition using the msfk command. For example if you want the Windows partition to become an empty Linux ext3 file system you would issue the command:
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/hda1
