I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 with the help of vmware workstation. Now I want to format window xp without affecting Ubuntu and ns 2.29 which is installed in Ubuntu, is it possible?

  • Is the Ubuntu 10.04 the server version? If not then it's not supported and I suggest you install a supported version also Windows is off topic on this site and XP is end of life. – Warren Hill Jun 27 '14 at 8:55
  1. Just backup *.vmdk ie hard disk image files created by VMWare.
  2. Now when you reinstall VMWare upon format create a new Virtual Machine with preferably the exact same configurations.
  3. When VMWare asks to create the Virtual Hard Disk, Choose existing VMDK file.

Backed up Ubuntu will boot.
