I've got Windows 7 with Wubi 11.10 installed. I would like to replace that with a proper 12.04 installation alongside a new Windows XP installation, but I'm not sure what the best path would be. I can't figure out how to install WinXP via USB -- my computer has no cd drive.
I'm not skilled enough to use Ubuntu all the time, and my iPhone requires me to run some Windows version for the damn iTunes software. I have all my data on the Windows partition but also lots of apps and settings in Ubuntu. I back up the data on the Windows partition. I don't mind having to re-do the Ubuntu customizing.
How can I install Windows XP and Ubuntu 12.04 alongside each other?
Which one to install first? I think either one will "break" the boot of the other one, so afterward I'd have to repair the boot mechanism.
