How to remove Ubuntu 10.04 from dual boot?


Is it possible to remove Ubuntu, i dont have an actual disk partition just a 12gb folder within windows that Ubuntu loads from. I thought i should find out how to remove it now incase anything goes wrong and i am stuck. I don't have a windows cd if that is important. Thanks.

How did you install Ubuntu in a windows "folder"? Do you mean in a virtual machine?

If you don't have a windows CD, how did you load windows? Are you using the windows or Ubuntu (grub) bootloader? We need more information before supplying answers.

Sounds like a wubi install - you should be able to uninstall from Control panel, just like any other software.
