I'm delighted with my exploration of Ubuntu, but I migrated from 7.10 to 8.10 to gain Blu-Ray device recognition for an LG Blu-ray, HD DVD devide, but can't get around the DRM issues as yet. I haven't been able to find ubuntu player software that will take Blu-ray. For this (the latest Win Media Player accommodates Blu-Ray) and other reasons (client requirements) I need to reload WinXP on the machine. At install I created a 50GB FAT32 partition to accommodate WinXP (the rest of the 500GB HD is dedicated to Ubuntu). But when I try to install XP, it doesn't find a hard drive to use.
Is it necessary to wipe the HD and start from scratch with WinXP first, then add Ubuntu as most literature suggests? or is it possible to load WinXP onto the FAT32 partition that's been prepared for it?
Can you help with this problem?
