I'm having trouble getting Windows XP and Ubuntu dual boot to work on an Ideapad S205. Fortunately I found people with similar issues and a possible solution. The solution is posted here: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/Ideapad-S205-GRUB-EFI-trouble/m-p/443629/highlight/true#M2965
I'm currently stuck on steps 8-9 because the diskpart that comes with Windows XP does not support activating partitions. Nor does it have the bootsect tool.
8. bootsect /nt60 C: 9. diskpart --> select disk 0 --> select partition 3 --> active --> exit
Are there equivalent tools for XP or do I have to boot with some other ISO to make it work?
