Is there any way to install Windows XP on a notebook PC where CD drive is really faulty and only has Ubuntu installed?
No USB option is possible here, as the motherboard does not support USB boot. The computer is Acer Aspire 1640, to make it more complicated :D
I believe there is no way to achieve that, but there may be some tricky combination I've yet to hear about :)
EDIT: another option is to copy the Windows install files from an installation ISO to a small pre-formatted FAT32 partition, and then execute installation from this partition.
But how to configure GRUB so that it would be possible to somehow enter the FAT32 partition?
