    Hi mzahdeh,
    Yes you can do that but the second issue depends on how you are triple booting. What kind of a boot manager are you using? If you are using boot.ini from XP then you can just take the linux line out of the equation. Otherwise you can do a fixmbr with XP from the recovery console if you are using GRUB.

    Accepted Solution

    boot up with your XP disc, choose "repair" and use the "recovery console." Log in then use "fixmbr"
