Hi Medhavini,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here it is.

XCP 1.0 is a full operating system distribution. When you install XCP,
it rewrites your partitions and installs itself over whatever was on
your disk.

I really hope you had back ups of your data, because I don't think
you'll be able to recover your Ubuntu system.
