    windows install problems

    hi i have problems with installing windows xp and windows 7 on a stationary pc that had xubuntu on it before.
    first i had xubuntu and i first tried to install windows 7, i choose the delete option on hard drive and tried to install, then came up a error saying the filesystem NTFS was wrong or something like that...
    after i tried to put 2 different windows xp cd's to installl, the cd's dosent boot right, i have even press F8 and choose boot up CD-rom too
    and i only get that error "grub rescue"
    "error: unknown filesystem"

    wtf???

    If you don't want xbuntu on the hard drive only windows you might want to reformat the hard drive (you can do this with the live xbuntu CD or USB using Gparted) before you install windows(reformat drive space to NTFS or just delete the partitions so they are unallocated but partitions should not be any variant of EXT)
