Hi. My current OS is ubuntu 10.04. I have tried numerous unix systems and to say the least, I am just sick of linux in general. I want to go back to windows. My laptop was shipped with vista basic installed so thats what I have a cd for, but when I try to reinstall it I get an error saying that: 1. I can't format my partitions or create new ones. 2. I can't overwrite any of my partitions. So basically I can't get vista back on my system. I would REALLY prefer to go to windows xp, but I don't have a disc for it. Can anyone help me out here? And I don't know if this is allowed on these forums or not but if it is could someone please direct me to a legit windows xp download? not a corrupted/infected one.
