Is there a way to either upgrade from ubuntu 9.10 to windows xp using the windows xp reinstallation dell disk, OR do a clean install of windows xp using the reinstallation disk. If there is ANY way possible please answer. Thanx in advanced

I had to do a clean install of Windows XP Pro on my home computer recently and everything went just fine, but it seems that the computer will not boot up unless the Windows installation CD is the in CD-Rom drive. Nothing has changed with my computer hardware wise, and this didn’t happen when I first installed windows on this computer. I’ve tried reformatting and reinstalling but it doesn’t help. Any suggestions would be great!

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren’t sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start Windows Normally

^^^ that is what i get when try to start my computer. no matter which option i try they all send me back to that same screen. I don’t have my windows xp cd to repair it or do whatever the cd is needed to do. anything i can do to fix it without the cd?

I just did a clean install of windows xp on my pc and now i cant get a internet connection.What to do?

How can I repair WINDOWS Xp without reinstalling the entire operating system?????!!!!
Okay, i was doing some computer cleaning, deleting junk files, uninstalling, etc… then when i restarted my computer, my operating system, windows xp media center, the whole interface was lost. in other words, i cant see my desktop start menu, everything was reseted as if it was in safe mode and the whole GUI, graphical user interface stopped working. SO i cant copy my files or other things that i want to save before i would install the whole operating system all over again. SO BASICALLY I THINK THAT THERE IS A REGISTRY ERROR OF SOME KIND AND I CANT CLICK, COPY, CUT, ERASE, OR ANYTHING, NOT EVEN START ETC. How can i repair the system, i already tried system restore but it gives me an error that it is corrupted. I think of either using recovey console in windows when ou boot it up, BUT I DONT KNOW HOW TO USE THAT!!! PLEASE HELP !!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
