How to Install WinXP after Ubuntu with Gparted
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2009
First, download a copy of the Gparted Live CD ISO and burn it to a CD. The ISO image can be found here.
To burn an ISO file with Ubuntu, simply right click on it and click “Open with CD/DVD creator”, then click Burn. After burning the ISO to a CD, restart your computer with the CD in the drive. If you have your BIOS boot order configured to boot from CD, the CD should load a menu presenting you with many options, as seen below (if not, do some googling to find out how to change your booting device order within your bios or via a hotkey during POST so it will boot from your CD-Rom drive first):
When the CD boots, you’ll be given a menu like the one shown above. You should go ahead and select the default option that is highlighted at the top of the menu. The other options in the list are for use if you have problems with the your video card, and need to use legacy drivers (try to Force VESA first if you have a video driver problem later). After selecting a menu item and pressing ente
uninstalling Ubuntu using Gparted

I have Ubuntu 9.04 and XP Pro side by side on my laptop.
I want to uninstall Ubuntu and reinstall it inside Windows.
Can anyone tell me, step by step, how to use Gparted to do this? I have downloaded it, and burned it to disk. I don't understand the lingo of the choices given on the Gparted. I know I have to delete partitions, but I do not want to delete the wrong ones. (yes, I am a newb)

i have installed backtrack 4 r2 on a usb pendrive with persistence in order to be able to carry it with my netbook wherever i go.

location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 23, 2008
(Tutorials originally written and posted here)
Installing Ubuntu along side an already existing installation of Windows is pretty easy, thanks to the auto partitioning tool and the Grub menu that is included with the Ubuntu Install CD. But what if you wanted to install Windows on a computer after you’ve installed Ubuntu? Today you’re going to learn how to do that.
What you’ll need:
* A blank CD to burn an ISO file onto.
* A copy of your Ubuntu Live Installation CD.
* Plenty of free time and a sandwich.

use ubuntu for gparted with pxe
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2008
I need to resize the partitions on about 1000 Windows machines (NTFS) across our network. I understand that a tool called gparted http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livepxe.php can operate via pxe boot, but that first a machine must be set up to serve as a pxe server for which a product called DRBL http://drbl.sourceforge.net/one4all/ is recomended. Has anyone here ever served out gparted via ubuntu? I have the 8.10 desktop running in vmware and need some assitance getting this set up. What are the steps I should take?
Switching to Ubuntu, where to begin?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 7, 2011
Hi, I have a server with windows 2008 standard installed along with plesk 8, I would like to move to linux because there is so much work involved trying to keep microsoft windows and plesk up to date, plesk seems easy to exploit and their support is not professional, what I need as a systems manager is to be able to swipe clean my server (all files have been backed up), once I install Ubuntu Server, I need a way to install Apache + PHP + mysql but also I need a way to setup virtual hosts at, http://myserver/myclient1, myclient2 and so on, my clients need to have sftp access into their folders but that directory needs to be locked/jailed so he/she can't get access to other files on the server and other clients by installing a php script to show all files on my server. Sorry for a long post. I've been using Ubuntu Desktop for 5 months now and I love it Thank You, Amy.
ultra slow Ubuntu, where to find useful logs?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 8, 2015
today i'm gone biking leaving my Notebook (Ubuntu 15.04) on.
There was one folder opened in nautilus, 2 inkscape windows in background and Firefox with 3 tabs. I've set Ubuntu to put the screen in standby after 10 mins.
When i came back (1:30 h) the screen was still on and the system was ultra-slow. I moved the mouse and the cursor has moved after 5-10 second doing the movement in 1-2 minutes! I was unable to close or open any windows, so i pressed CTRL+ALT+F1 which has opened a terminal in about 2 minutes.
From the terminal i've tried to login but when i have entered the username i was unable to enter the password and the terminal has returned a login timeout after 60 seconds.
I was going to do the shutdown holding down the power button for some seconds, but I’ve tried to blindly enter some commands in the terminal. I've tried to login, launch a
and type my password. After 1-2 minutes the system rebooted. Now it works fine.
