Yes I can, but I haven't let it run because I'm unsure what to do.

I tried to use the windows disc but it locks up when it gets to the place where it asks you to install, recovery panel ,or exit. Also when I try to boot with anything other than the ubuntu disc i get this message

GRUB loading
error: no such partition
grub rescue>
It is asking for a cmmand I assume but I dont know what to do.

It does not give you this option:



Windows listed at the bottom?

No it doesnt give me that option. The only way ubuntu will boot at all is with the disc in the machine.

Windows boots with the disc in but locks up when it gets to the part where it asks to load windows use repair console or exit.

It is time to do a hard drive erase, which will get rid of everything, unfortunately: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (USB Flash & Floppy)

Works on a floppy disk and flash drive. Let me know when you have this ready. Then, we can continue with the operation.

==

Right now, it seems the blue screen of death is about hardware corruption, in which case the setup for Windows will fail, because some hardware on your computer may no longer function. If that is the case, I have a diagnostics kit that I know of that can be used to figure out what hardware is plaguing the setup of Windows.

Sorry Ive been out of touch. Blew my motor in my truck so I took some time off to fix it. I dont know if it makes any difference, but i can access my windows files thru ubuntu, as long as the ubuntu disc is in. Can we fix anything this way or should i just save the things I want then proceed with the killdisk download?

I am sorry. I am missing the flash drive instructions I had. Let me think

OK.

  1. Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to burn CD.
  2. This downloads an ISO IMAGE (not a regular file) that needs to be burned to the CD AS AN IMAGE (not as an added file).
  3. Use the following ISO burner: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then, afterward try to install Windows XP full, once again.

If you have any issues with this process, please ask.

After using kiilldisc i tried twice to reinstall windows. It loads up but looks like its always in safe mode. When I adjust properties etc it does not make things smaller. Also it cannot find my internet connection, and I have no sound. I am currently using ubuntu again. I installed it but get the same grub error as before so im running it from the boot disc. I am very confused at this point.

Windows did reinstall?

If so, device drivers will have to be obtained for some drivers.

Yes windows did install. But I cannot get on te internet in windows. It says i have no internet connection or something to that effect. Thats why I'm using ubuntu. It still connects, though i have to run it with the disc in.

I reinstalled windows yet again. i can access the internet now but all the icons tool bars etc are still way too big. I cannot seem to adjust my screen resolution, and trying properties changes nothing. Any suggestions?
