Boot from the Windows XP CD and let it reformat the drive. WIndows XP cannot use the native Ubuntu filesystem, so you'll need to reformat the drive anyway and you might as well do it using the XP install disc.

No, a reformat does not take place if you're only upgrading service packs. If you have any doubts, be sure to get the service pack upgrade through Windows Update.

you must reformat the drive XP is on-Then install 2000 as a new OS. Because it is a downgrade-not reformatting the drive will cause XP to not allow the downgrade.

Reinstall Windows XP from your CD or DVD set and reformat your hard drive. This will erase everything including the virus. Also, get a Mac.

you have to boot from something else, whether it be a floopy disk, thumb drive, or setup cd. you can't delete files that you are currently using. if you boot into windows xp you can't delete windows xp.

Generally speaking, yes. You must check the size of the hard drive to see if Windows XP will fit, and note that XP will probably run poorly on a system with less than 256 MB of RAM anyway.

Check to make sure that you have more than the minimum RAM required on your computer to use Windows XP. Answer: Check hardware compatibility. if ok. then reformat your drive and then install.

I don't think that you can. If I'm not mistaking, the compter that came with the Windows Media Center System is kind of locked to it in a way. The only other way I can think of is to buy a copy of Windows XP (Home or Pro) and reformat your hard drive and then put the new system disk in and follow the propmts.

You might not need to reformat. You could try just uninstalling the Novell Client, by going to the properties of the Network adapter. If you do want / need to reformat, you should do it with the original disk that came with the computer. Sometimes the EULA key will not work with other manufacturer's CD.

You cannot reformat a hard drive and keep operating system(s) untouched. The point of formatting is to erase all data. There is only one exception, you can reformat some partitions on your hard drive if you have any. If you want to keep your current operating system those partitions must not be system.

No, but you can get Windows Live Mail for Windows XP in Windows Live Essentials for XP.

If 'vista' recognizes the existence of the drive, you might have to reformat the former 'xp' drive. Don't think it would be wise to have two complete OS's working on the same PC.

Get anti-virus or reformat.
