Re: REINSTALL WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION
Set your bios to boot from disk, install the operating system dvd, and it should boot from the dvd. Follow the instructiones, the entir thing will take 30 minutes or so. Have your serial number ready and you should be good to go.

No you cannot, especially if the laptops are different make/model. You need a Windows XP Home installation CD and the installation code that is printed on the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop.
I am having the same problem. I have a compaz f767NR laptop in which the DVD drive is not reconigzed by the laptop. I have already looked and tried many different solutions and all have failed.

Any other solutions?

Unfortunately, you will need to purchase another operating system disc, even though you have the product key. That key is assigned to the disc that came with the machine. Why exactly did the Xp disc of your father's not work?
Have you created the Recovery CD's? If so, put the recovery CD in the disc drive and restart your machine. Most notebooks start from CD first and then from hard drive. If not, you could change that in it's BIOS. (Press F10 at the moment you see the HP Invent logo).
When the disc boots it allows you to choose from multiple options. Choose the options that sounds like "Restore factory defaults" or something like it.
The D-partition is only used to create the disc and hold info. There is no software there to run for recovery.
I hope this helps, if you need more help just ask. I work at a company who is an HP Partner so.
it sounds like the memory, try removing the new memory from the notebook and see if there are any errors, if not then that stick is ok, try just your new memory in the notebook and leave out your old memory, if the same problems you know its the new memory, if there are no problems, then the two sticks wont work together.
