you installed Lubuntu. It would have failed without installing
Lubuntu, too. <<<

That could be. It just seemed strange that it happened twice (and to
others). But, I suppose randomness means that could happen.

>>> Btw. a complete Windows XP backup could only be restored, if the same
hardware is used. If you need to replace a hard disk by another one
(usually you don't get the same hard disk you bought years ago), a
restored Windows XP won't run anymore. <<<

I never experienced that. I moved Windows to other drives and it worked. I
may have had to edit a bootinfo(?) file about the disks.

My problem with dual boot was that I always ended up with an unbootable
system. I don't recall all the details. They were all painful episodes
which I have disassociated from. It seemed to have something to do with the
MBR being jacked, or the Microsoft hidden partition(s) being affected

I haven't run Windows in 2-3 years. No problems since.
