I have installed Ubunta linux on my laptop which after serveral weeks I decided that it was not for me . I tried installing XP again but every time it tries to install I get BSOD stating that windows has encountered an error and must shut down . I have tried formatting the harddrive following instructions from the MS site but I keep getting the same BSOD . I can re-install ubunta with no problems , but I really want XP back . Any help would be appreciated as I am now becoming desperate .
