Hi Donnier. I am really glad you solved the problem. I would suggest at this time no to remove anything, leave the computer the way it is if it is working for you just use it and enjoy.

Good luck to you.

If you really want to get rid of Ubuntu, run these cmds, so that we can see how your disk is laid out
Code:
fdisk -l

df -hT
and post the results. You may need to run as root or via sudo cmd.

Commands. Type them in the terminal, open a terminal from the Mint menu tab in the lower left or hold down the Ctrl+Alt+t keys simultaneously to open a terminal. The fdisk you need to type: sudo fdisk -l (and that is a Lower Case Letter L)

There is a space between fdisk and -l
Code:
sudo fdisk -l

Basically the same problem; when we specify a cmd to run, you must run it exactly as written ie case-sensitive & spaces are significant.
That's why we use code tags (see https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...do=bbcode#code ) to make sure there's confusion.

Also if you don't have much knowledge and understanding about how GNU/Linux works yet just leave it and enjoy!
