    Hey, I'm currently running Ubuntu 7.04 and wanted to install Windows XP to play games on it but when I ran the installation cd, after everything loaded I got the blue screen. I tried formatting my hard drive and it didn't work either so if anyone could please help.

    Are you using the original or genuine Win XP CD? If you format the drive you will have to reinstall Ubuntu which is easier to do after Win.
    Also, post your computer specs please.

    Now, go to Thread Tools and choose "Solved." That will indicate to folks that you no longer need assistance. The courtesy will be appreciated.
