Install xp in a different partition and then boot with live cd/usb.

Use boot-repair to reinstall grub. Enjoy :)

Install XP anywhere you want. Start computer from Ubuntu USB or CD. Do following instructions:

  1. sudo fdisk -l will list you partitions enter image description here
  2. Mount your linux partition to a temp directory with sudo mount /dev/sd** /mnt (replace ** with your partition)
  3. reinstal grub with sudo grub-install –root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda
  4. Update grub list with sudo update-grub
