    use the Disk Manager , find the C: drive --> this will be you Windows system

    the other partition will be the Ubuntu partition; DELETE IT

    this will free the drive letter assignment AND remove it from My Computers.

    Reboot;

    now you can look into expanding C:\ to be the whole internal hd

    Yes it shows up in the Disk Manager, but NOT in My Computer.

    I don't know if the MS software will expand a partition or not, but Partition Magic will
