I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on an Asus eee pc 1001px Netbook over Windows XP, but now I really need to get back to a native bootable Windows XP.
I have the Windows installation CD but the machine won't let me boot from anything other than the hard drive (despite fiddling with BIOS boot order, it will not boot from an SD card or external DVD player).
I can still see the factory Windows XP recovery partition on the hard drive, but the machine boots direct into Ubuntu without offering any other options.
My two questions are:
Could installing Ubuntu have done something to the BIOS boot options? if so, how do I undo that so I can boot from an external device?
Given I can only boot from the hard drive, how can I get it to offer me the option to boot into Windows XP recovery?
