after installing ubuntu hardy to dual-boot on my existing xp system i can no longer boot windows up. opting to boot windows leads to a system recovery process which cannot complete...
i backed up my xp system on a portable hard drive but wouldn't know how to use that data to fix this problem, anyone have any ideas?
also, after installing hardy on my laptop i find none of the usb ports work, which is pretty poo! is this a common flaw?
hope somebody can help so i can still use my usb drumkit....
