Can't reinstall WinXP after removing Mint 8 from Laptop
My old Acer Laptop had linux Mint 8 installed on it and worked fine for months. I got my self a new MacBook a few weeks ago and decided to give my Acer to my father in law. The only thing my father in law can use is WinXp. He finds Mint hard to use. Anyway, I guess each person get's used to something and then sticks to it.
So I told him I would re-install WinXP on the Acer and let him have it. I tried the recovery disk and everything works fine up to the point of rebooting. I get the following message and I am pretty sure it has something to do with the fact that I installed Mint as the main OS, wiping everything of the disk.
The messages reads:
Does anybody know how to fix this? How can I get the disk to boot the WinXP I have installed?
