    Snip...
    "
    Hi guys,
    I installed win 8, and Ubuntu (dual boot) in my computer. Now I don't want Ubuntu. I want to uninstall Ubuntu. I searched for it. They said find Ubuntu disk drive, and format it. I don't know Ubuntu disk drive. So I'm formatting disk drives sequentially, and deleting unnecessary files & folders."

    Windows can't see a Ubuntu drive so boot into your Ubuntu system and open the "disks" program... this can tell you where Ubuntu is installed.
    1.
    disks.
    2.
    linux.

    But Ubuntu will leave a grub behind, you need to have a MBR recovery disk if you wish to totally remove it.
