You need a program called GParted. To get GParted go over to Ubuntu page and download the OS on a CD/DVD. After that you can boot from the CD/DVD on Ubuntu and try it out. There you can select the tool GParted Partition Manager which is preinstalled on Ubuntu liveCD and delete with it the partition Windows 8 is on. Afterwards you can install on that same partition you deleted Windows 8 the Windows XP OS.

  • Thank you very much,have you any tutorial for that? Jun 30, 2013 at 11:41

  • Yes, click on the links above i put in my post. Also as i see you don't need to put Ubuntu on CD/DVD you can just put GParted on LiveCD. You need just to download the .iso file and put it on CD/DVD. Just check the links i gave you

  • He could also just download the gparted live disc and use that, less clutter, straight to the point, smaller and will load up faster.
