Need Help Switching from Ubuntu to Windows XP on a Dell Mini 910

This question is not answered

Does anyone have instructions for installing Windows on a mini 9 which has factory installed Ubuntu which I would like to get rid of?  I loaded Windows on a flash drive. Went to boot menu in Ubuntu and told it to load from removable disk but it doesn't work or doesn't read the disk. I'm not sure. Continues to load Ubuntu.    Not at all familiar with Ubuntu/Linux.

    Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

    You will need to have Windows on a cd/dvd with an external cd/dvd drive. Boot to the disk and you will have to delete the partition and then re-create a windows NTFS partiton then format it, You then should be able to install Windows.  Make sure drivers are available for the hardware on your system prior to doing anything.
