    Today I got bored with my Leopard and decided to install Ubuntu instead and deleate Leopard. That was because I don't really use MacOS due to some work related issues. I installed Ubuntu and in the process deleted the MacOS partition. Whne I restarted Windows XP (SP2) would not work nor did Ubuntu.
    I read some thing online and now Ubuntu Work, but windows gives me an error at start up, basically a blue screen: Unmountable_boot_volume.
    Windows starts loading but while still loading I get the blue screen...
    Any ideas of how to make Windows work again ?
    thanks a lot guys

    I think you're going to have to zero out the drive with the install disks and reinstall everything. FWIW, you shouldn't delete the Mac partition even if you don't use it because it's the only way you can receive firmware updates which can be important.

    It must be a simpler way of accomplishing the same thing....
