Sound like you have two versions of the operating system out there. Not sure what your question is. If you want to remove the old version you should have done that while you were doing the installation. That would have been easy by just telling the system to do it for you.
Now you will probably need some type of partitioning software and i'm not sure if you just delete it if it will cause problems when you try to boot because windows knows it's out there.
If I were you, I would just reinstall windows and clean the disk of everything. It shows you what it finds out there as far as operating systems, so just delete them both, then do a quick NTFS format of the drive and reinstall windows.
i think that driver must me a lan driver

When you click on Activate now you can select the activation by the Internet or by telephone.
To activate by the Internet you need to have the LAN card installed with the drivers and have Internet access, otherwise you need to activate by the telephone.
Please note XP SP1 is old you need to install XP SP3 (which includes SP2).

recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before
updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the
it is all to do with the installation. You will need to install windows freshly. the disks you are using sound like they are recovery disks but if you have formatted your harddrive then they may not work.
if you have a windows disk and are trying to load it and are having problems doing this then let me know
If you use his disk, that will be better, because if it is original HP disk, it should install all original drivers at all, however this may delete all files on the computer depending on the type of installation you do.
Installing an older version of XP home does not make a big difference , as windows will update the system using automatic updates. What must be done, is ensuring that all proper drivers are installed.
Check device manager, in control panel/system, and see if all devices are installed with proper drivers.

Uninstall or reinstall SP1. Like Windows XP, Vista will not be reliable until SP2.
If you are using the USB modem via a PCMCIA USB 2.0 adaptor, then you will have a power issue. The PCMCIA cannot supply enough current to properly initialize a USB mode (500mA). You will need to get your self a powered hub or get yourself a HSDPA mobile.
