Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.

I had Ubuntu installed with Windows as primary OS. Now I want to use only Windows, so I tried to reinstall it and Windows installation CD does not recognize the hard drive. When I try to boot from hard drive I get grub error 22. Basically I reformatted hard drive on Windows machine, and obviously and did not remove Ubuntu completely. How can I remove what is left from Ubuntu and install Windows on it.
i also suffered with this type of problem....the solution is not very good though....what i did install mandrake 10.0 and then the boot loader have been changed.....now you can install windows by xps bootable cd....i know this is not good sulution but it did work.....
If you have a boot loader problem that "Just booting tips" cannot cure it I would be interested to know.
With this proviso : If the the system boots but the kernel panic that is not a boot loader's problem because by that time the boot loader has finished its work and handed the control over to the kernel.
i too have same prob but with fedora... boot loader wont allow the xp bootable cd to mount....... to avoid it i'll install ubunto and then reformat that using xp...... so better reinstall the ubunto and then try XP bootable
