Impossible to solve without lots more info.

Is there any other OS on the HD?
Why did you reuse an XP partition?
What method of install did you use? WUBI? Full? Other?
Which version of Ubuntu or variant were you trying to install?
What exact steps did you take during the install? Please list in order taken.

I realize that many new users post because they are lost and can't figure out how to even begin, but please read this sticky:
