I tried to resize my windows partition and it hung in ubuntu so now my XP installation is screwed. I also (perhaps foolishly) resized my recovery partition and that is also unavailable.
I’ve been booting into win98 off a USB stick to access the i386 folder on the same drive and it all seems to install fine. After the first reboot it goes to install more files and it can’t find them.
I don’t have an external drive and its kind of annoying samsung assume I would….
otherwise its quite nice in the world of ubuntu/OSX 🙂
My advice: buy an external DVD drive or external hard drive. I bought a Seagate AgentGo 500GB hard drive for $150. It looks like notebook with phone numbers and can even fit in my jacket pocket.
Get yourself an external drive – a cheap one is fine.
Then you can play “Linuxdistro hopper”. Great fun!
If you have any tips on getting the fn-keys working, please share them!

You can create an installer on a usb drive if you have a copy of xp. I used it and it worked fine.
