Can I undo partition created by Ubuntu install

Asked by mjt060682


I am totally new to Ubuntu and decided to try in.

I installed Ubuntu on my Acer PC running Windows XP, and selected "entire disk" when asked about the partitioning selection.
After that, I cannot boot up using XP anymore. Can u help? I want to be able to boot up with my OS of choice everytime I
turn on my desktop. Thanks

By selecting "entire disk" you installed Ubuntu to the entire disk. That means you gave the installer permission to use 100% of the drive to install Ubuntu. Therefore, XP is gone. In order to set up a dual boot you need to select the option to resize and use free space. More information on setting up a dual boot can be found here ->

Can you help with this problem?
