i tried this before but after adjusting the grub2 menu all i would get was a black screen after the POST

good thing i made a ghost like always

so what i wnat to do is

reinstall ubuntu next to my windows xp

i want to use ubuntu for secure payments(since i trust ubuntu is save) since on my xp there always some stuff that log it :/(pls dont ask why)

i do know that when after i install ubuntu and made xp my main boot again that i can encrypt teh partition that my ybubtu is on so that my xp has no access to it

but now to my main question
how can i make xp be my main boot ?

Goto Ubuntu Software Center and install StartUp-Manager. The Startup-Manager is under System>Administration>StartUp-Manager. Select Windows XP under Default Operating System.
