Ubuntu: Reinstall Ubuntu option is disabled



Question:

I have a Ubuntu and Windows on my machine and I have to reinstall Ubuntu without losing any of my data, /home folder, but reinstall ubuntu option is grayed out for some reason.

What should I do in order to reinstall it without losing files and programs?


Solution:1

You can click on "Something Else" and then manually reinstall it. Choose the same paritions for the same mounts you had before such as /home and root (/) and just make sure the format checkbox is NOT checked. It will reinstall overtop of everything (overwrite) but won't delete anything. Of course as always, you should backup your /home folder before, just in case
