o_O wow that was quick... okay so in order...
I'm sure it's the partition table because out of curiosity I tried installing it in Virtual Box and it installed without issue (though I don't know how to set up wireless internet on XP but that's a different issue for another subforum. I can get to MSN but most other sites don't work (youtube for example. But again not for here)) and I read somewhere that the MBR for Ubuntu interferes with Windows cause it doesn't play nice with other OSes.
As for why I'm using 9.04... I embarrassingly can't find the USB stick with Ubuntu 14 live on it >< and I'm using XP because I can't stand Vista (though it would probably be easier since it should automatically set up my laptop's wireless adapter) and my laptop won't run 7/8/10 that well (it's 2GB of RAM with a Celeron processor. CQ60 is the model).
And yes, I'm making sure that my internet is connected before I run the terminal from the Live CD; I'm not a complete idiot (not said with any ill meaning, just joking :3) I think that's all points addressed... If I missed anything, let me know kay? I'll try the suggested method for getting XP to install when I'm sure of how I'm actually going to get connected to the internet after it's installed. I don't want to be stuck without an OS (9.04 can't be upgraded through the software update service for some reason; I tried before. I think it's due to support having ended for it)
