    I had just received a CD for Ubunta on Saturday, August 9, 2008. I place the CD into my CD Drive and choice to install Ubunta as a secondary os. Now after installing Ubunta I get at start up a choice to boot to WinXP or Ubunta.

    Neither one works ... but when I try to boot into WinXP Home Edition I get the error ...

    It just keeps starting over and over with the startup page where I can make a choice of WinXP or Ubunta ... this is driving me nuts ...

    I also don't have a recovery or the original CD for Windows XP Home Edition.

    So please, before I jump out my window ... please help me if you can.

    Running on a Dell Laptop ... Oh! If I run the Ubunta in Live/CD mode I can see all my programs in it's folders ... I need to be able to boot back to WinXP Home Edition as I have many programs that I have purchase stuck in limbo like me ...
