    [HELP] Installing Windows XP over Ubuntu

    Hello,

    Because Ubuntu Desktop was too slow for my PC I wanted to
    insall Windows XP on it again. I put the CD in the tray and
    booted from the CD and I deleted all the partitions, inclu-
    ding the one with Ubuntu. I pressed install Windows XP on
    my partition, it installs but after the installation is done
    the PC is not open Windows XP. I installed Ubuntu before with
    USB-Stick, and I tried to install Windows XP in NTFS. I saw somewhere a while ago that you must do something in Ubuntu
    before installing XP.

    Can someone help me, i'm really in need of my PC now, it's
    for school, it needs to be done todaw because of school
    tomorrow..

    I hope that someone can help me..

    K. Regards,
    I. C.

    So you now don't have any OS there
    try to install windows again there and delete all partitions and make one new and press enter on that one and install.

    and when Windows XP says welcome,there comes a blue
    screen.

    if the xp cd does not help,
    insert the ubuntu live cd, go Administration>disc utility>format the drive you want to install XP in
    btw,I guess opening the disc utility will take some time.
    just be patient and try it.

    good luck.
