So I've formatted the flash drive and made it bootable. Got into Bios(version A06) and set my flash drive to boot first. GNU GRUB version 2.02 pops up and i have it sitting in the command prompt. I just want to boot windows xp:/
I'm still kind of a novice and thought Linux would be better for my computer but its not worth the hassle of having tons of steps and always having to do things manually. If anyone can help thank you

Just write the image with unetbootin. Reboot the same way you installed linux. Plain and simple.
