Ok I think I think I've much work to do, I want to dual boot windows server and xp, but I've linux and grub installed. But before I begin I need to ask some questions.
The current situation:
boot - grub <
Windows server 2008
My linux distro is on an external hard drive, and windows is on my main hard drive. I ultimately want to remove grub and linux from my system and replace linux with windows xp. The problem is I don't have the repair disk for windows server, and thus I cannot repair the bootloader. I cannot replace linux with xp before grub has been removed because if I do grub will complain about not being able to find the operating systems, and will make me unable to boot to windows.
So question 1: How to repair my bootloader so I can dual boot windows server and windows xp? or how to replace linux with windows xp in my grub menu.
Like I said I've windows server 2008 on my main hard drive. I'm not sure but I thought that windows xp didn't feature partition selection? I thought win xp was a blind missile that just installed itself wherever it could. Am I right?
So my questions are:
- How to repair my bootloader so I can dual boot windows server and windows xp? or how to replace linux with windows xp in my grub menu.
- Does anyone know if windows xp (home edition) features partition selection? And if it doesn't how to get it on my external hard drive without overwriting my main hard drive?
