The WindowsXP setup program will hang when it tries check hardware at the beginning of setup. It won't recognize the linux file system as a legitimate drive and freeze. You'll need to either format the drive and lose all the linux data, or buy a second drive to install Windows on and make the windows drive the primary drive, and temporarily disconnect the linux drive. After you install Windows you can reconnect the linux drive as secondary. You can check the forums for your version of linux and find help on setting up a dual boot system so you can boot from Windows and linux. You'll just have to make adjustment to the linux bootloader config file.
Linux is a great operating system, but is not for the faint of heart.
Good Luck

Hi,
You are getting this error because linux is installed on it.
Windows doesn't go well with linux.
Format your harddrive using any 3rd party formatter tool.
I mean, it should be like a blank hardrive without any files in it.
Then try to use the recovery disc.

I HAD WINDOWS ON MY ASUS EEE900. I HAVE RE-INSTALLED THE LINUX FROM THE BOOT DISC SUPPLIED WITH THE MACHINE IT LOADS OK AND THE MACHINE WORKS BUT IT WONT SHOW THE SECOND 16 GIG DRIVE. WHEN I GO INTO...

You should first (with or from a Windows CD) delete all partitions on all drives .... NON-DOS Partitions etc before you do the LINUX installation. The drives must be like when they were without any format or partition from the factory. Then only will the drive (all drives) be visible for linux to format with it's own information..

How to install linux on compaq presario cq40-144tu

hrm... i'll just assume that this is the first time you've attempted anything with linux? There are vairous Linux distributions, with the Ubuntu flavour seeming to be the best one for the windows to linux switcher (IMO). I would try a live Ubuntu disc first to make sure it's what you're after, which can be downloaded here
http://releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386.iso

or if you're ready to dive straight in, here is the full version that you burn to a cd and then install

Pm800m2

Hi you will need to contact the manufacturer of the computer,
Dell, Acer, HP etc [ not the motherboard manufacturer] and select their support option. Some manufacturers have a lock code on the hard drive and if you can get the unlock key then you will be ok. The only other option is to replace the hard drive.
