Question about HP 530 Notebook
Please tell me all the steps which i should follow to install windows xp sp2 from a cd on my hp 530 laptop, my laptop do not have any previously installed operating system not even free DOS
1 - Place CD in the Drive
2 - Restart PC and go into Bios by pressing Del, F2 or whatever instruction the start up screen says.
3 - Go to Boot configuration and set it to Boot from CD
4 - Save and Exit
5 - Follow onscreen instructions untill you get to the Windows install screen.
6 - You may have to create a partition (Drive Letter) on your hard drive if nothing was there before, you can assign as much hard drive space as you want to this. If your not sure just use all the space available. This will be your C drive.
7 - Pick the drive you just created and install windows on it using the on screen menu. It will ask you if to format the drive, say yes and use NTFS not FAT as NTFS has more features.
8 - Just say yes to all questions asked after this point.
When windows is installed it will ask you for a CD key and to activate by going on the net, I'm afraid I can't help you with this.
