you could dual boot or just or back up your Ubuntu data and move it to your other Ubuntu computer . Next , you can insert the XP disc and format the drive and install . You will need an XP disc that has not been used for installation on different computer . If you over-wrote the XP installation with Ubuntu there is no way to restore it .

whenever i try to install it via CD the xp CD says there are no drives and then a blue screen of death appears saying there is an error with setupdd.sys.

There is no way to downgrade from Ubuntu to XP. The only way would be to delete the Ubuntu partitions (Gparted from the Live CD) and then install Windows.
