Ubuntu – How to completely remove and reinstall Ubuntu


I want to reinstall Ubuntu, but I also want all information and settings to disappear. So everything looks like the first time I installed it. Is it possible to do so via Terminal? Or what are the steps I should follow?

Best Answer

You cannot perform a reinstallation of Ubuntu from an existing installation.

  1. Use Ubuntu live disk to boot up.
  2. Select Install Ubuntu on hard disk.
  3. Keep on following the wizard.
  4. Select the Erase Ubuntu and reinstall option (the third option in the image).
