Okay, so I have Windows XP Pro SP2 currently installed. Everytime I reboot, I have the options for "Windows XP Professional" or "Ubuntu". The Ubuntu OS doesn't exist on this computer, but it registers as Ubuntu 10.04. So, I now have the Ubuntu 10.10 install disk on standby, and want to fix the Side-By-Side install so it does work. But I'm wondering, what happens if I install side by side and it fails? Will I lose my current OS and have to completely reinstall?
