How can I uninstall another version of Ubuntu I installed ‘along side’ an existing Ubuntu install?

Spread the love

I put in a USB ISO of a different Ubuntu version and thought I would try the ‘Install Along Side’ option. Now I want to uninstall it and have my original Ubuntu start up without the grub menu.
I installed gparted and read a few similar ‘Ask Ubuntu’ Q&As but I’m not sure what to do.
I know even if I delete the partitions, (is this what I should do?) that the original Ubuntu is not going to boot for anything because of a similar experience. So, there’s a grub file that needs to be moved or changed? I looked inside boot of the Ubuntu install I want to uninstall and there was a grub file that had a note ‘do not edit this file’.
I also tried OS Uninstaller and after trying to remove it I got a non-descript error message.
If you’d like me to provide more information please comment and I will update.
Thank you.
