I had Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a second hand PC I bought sometime back and I have to say its better than windows any day. However now I need both windows and Ubuntu on my PC. I've already backed up data and burned a Windows XP Sp3 installation cd. One of my biggest problem is that my hard drive has about 4-5 partitions and 2 unallocated of about 5 gb and 7 mb. I have put a screenshot of Gparted. I really don't know much about computers in details so I want everything to go smoothly. Here's what I'm going for:
- Undoing all partitions into one.
- Installing Windows XP
- Create a second partition
- Install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Hard drive is about 320 GB SATA. How to undo partitions. Should I go in for a complete format? Much appreciated if anyone can guide me here. Thanks a lot!
