To uninstall an operating system using OS-Uninstaller, first download its setup file, and create a bootable disk using it. If you have Ubuntu installed in your computer, download the file and install from the terminal.

Wait for the operating system you selected to be completely uninstalled.

To uninstall your current operating using a different version, insert the bootable disk for the new operating system, and follow the installation wizard. When asked whether you're sure you want to delete your current operating system, click Yes.

You can uninstall Windows using the Safe Mode. Boot into Safe Mode, open the command prompt window, and navigate to the drive with the windows installation. Type the command "del Windows," hit Enter, and type "Y" when asked whether you're sure you want to delete.
