uninstalling Ubuntu from my armada e500


Hello all, this is my first post thanks

How can I uninstall ubuntu from my armada e500, I was to;d that this would be a great program; and I am sure that it is, but I am not intune enough to really get it.

I would like to wipe the HD, and install winXP...ugh I know

I thought I could just boot up with the install cd, but it will not boot from the CD? any help?

Thanks

As far as operating systems go, you do not need to "uninstall" one to install another. Simply overwrite the previous one.

You must ensure that your CD drive is set to be booted before your hard drive (in your BIOS). Looking at your other posts (which are strangely posted after this one???), you seemed to have also had some similar trouble booting the Ubuntu CD. Assuming this problem was solved and you did manage to successfully install Ubuntu, you should still be able to boot any other bootable CD at this point.
