Hi, so this kinda has a pre-story but its not related to this category so I will leave out the details. What I am trying to do is install ubuntu 12.10 over a 12.10 install that I did over windows 7 because I was trying to get ubuntu working and things were not turning out very well. What my problem is is that after I did the install even though I am about 99% sure I chose the install over option, the first problematic install of ubuntu is still there. I have tried about 4 times now and all with the same result. Not only that but now problems that were not there when I first installed over windows have appeared since, compiz doesn't seem to be working and I do not see anything but my desktop and cursor. This doesn't really bother me to much since I am trying to get a new install anyways. So what I really need help on is getting this ghost of a ubuntu install to die so my other install will load. I do have two hard drives, I installed the original one over HDa, and I may have installed over top of HDb (which had all my media on it Sad ) but I dont remember doing it. If anyone has an idea what is happening please let me know, I was having enough trouble as it was with this other problem and I still have to fix that but I can't even do it without getting this all sorted out and I have spent 3 full days trying to work on it and I am further behind then when I started Sad

PS please forgive my writing, if it doesn't make sense, it's past midnight and I have been at this for hours.
