Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Primary OS: Win 7 Ultimate 64bit
original Ubuntu version: 11.04
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 inside windows and had installed all the updates etc... I was asked if I wanted to upgrade to Ubuntu 11.10 I said yes. It did its thing but when I tried to boot to it it said that H: was not accessible please put a disc in the drive. I realized that something had gone wrong and I booted to windows and tried to uninstall Ubuntu form my system but it did not work it again said that H: was not accessible and that I needed to put a disc into the drive. I then deleted the Ubuntu folder on C: and installed Ubuntu 11.10 inside windows again. Now under the boot menu I have 3 choices Windows, Ubuntu, and Ubuntu. I uninstalled Ubuntu 11.10 leaving windows, and Ubuntu in the boot menu. How do I get rid of the Ubuntu choice and revert back to just windows. Then I can reinstall Ubuntu 11.10 from scratch. The only other thing I can think of is to install Ubuntu 'alongside' Windows rather than 'inside' in the hopes that that will remedy the boot menu problem. I am not seeing any ill effects from having a dud boot menu choice but it is annoying my sensibilities like a tilted picture frame. Thanks
