The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.
I hope the following information is helpful.
If you are trying to install the driver for the Broadcom ethernet NIC that was pre-installed (NOT an ethernet card that you purchased and installed yourself), there is a softpack (updated driver installation) download available from HP/Compaq. It will install the driver automatically for you, just download it from the link below and run the ".exe" file.
IMPORTANT: Check to be sure that your current Operating System, and model of the network device you are trying to install, are BOTH listed below BEFORE you download!

I do not believe that server 2003 is able to be ran from a USB device, I may be wrong, but I doubt it. To see what the error message is, you can be ready when it pops up and push your Pause/Break button on your keyboard, this should freeze the screen so you can see exactly what it says.
How did you install the server o/s to the external drive?
Hello Paulraven, You can use an external USB DVD ROM drive, put the Vista disk in it and you will be able to install it via USB (once XP is fully Booted). If you want to Boot to the Vista disk using a USB port, then you should check your Boot Order in your BIOS and make sure that you set it to check CD/DVD drives before the hard drive, then you'll be able to touch any key on reboot to Boot to CD for a few seconds when that option appears on your screen (at the top left of the screen) after a Boot/re Boot with the Vista disk in the USB DVD drive. I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
