This is a question about install Windows XP, and should be directed elsewhere. Do you have install disks or a recovery image? What was not working, when you tried using Ubuntu 12.04 ? –  david6 Nov 23 '12 at 7:52

In XP setup, delete the existing ubuntu partition by pressing d and then create new partition.

Be careful while deleting. Take a backup of data if possible.

You need to delete. Delete is not same as format. –  Web-E Nov 23 '12 at 9:24
