So my question will be this then. Have you restarted your PC to make sure that the file was put on there correctly? Not try to transfer it to another PC but check from your own PC to make sure the file is there?

It could be that Ubuntu isnt putting the file on the drive. Which would cause this.

Try sending it to yourself via email, then download it on your dad's PC and see if you can open it then?

No you can do it. As long as you have open space on your hard drive.

Which means one partition that you will format and get it ready for windows. :smile:

That is if he even has a partition ready. :wink: Could have all the space used by Ubuntu which means he will have to shrink that down and then create a partition to format and then install. :tongueout:

GParted will be your best bet here. Download the LiveCD burn it to disc.

Burning ISO Images to a CD or DVD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

There are guides on how to burn a ISO with Windows. Linux has a built in ISO burning applicaiton. Forgot you wer in Ubuntu....

From there just boot with the CD in the tray and see what it shows.

thanks for the link :wink:
I now just need to fix the boot problem, I rebooted my computer 10 times and all of them took 3 minutes and a half to start.
I really need to fix this, or maybe if somebody can explain me how to activate hibernation /standby
thank you

In Ubuntu it should be under System>Preferences has the Screensaver settings where you can adjust it.

It takes that long. There is no explanation or workaround, but you shouldn't need to restart your Linux-based PC often at all.

Do you know what happens if you reboot 30+ times a day (Windows XP SP1)? You can just wait for blue screen of death any second. :tongueout:

I think he's just saying to be thankful that Ubuntu only takes a long time to boot vs. Windows which is faster but less stable :wink:
