I have a laptop that did have Vista on it but due to misuse it is hosed, so I am dual booting Ubuntu 9.04 and XP on it.
I ran the Ubuntu live cd, partitioned the hd into 3 partitions (one ntfs, one fat32-shared drive for both OSs to access, and ext4 for ubuntu)
I installed Ubuntu fine no problems. When I go to install XP I get the error:
I searched Google and do not really understand the problem nor a simple way to fix it. I have tried formatting the XP partition using gParted on the Ubuntu live CD but that didn't solve the issue.
