1.No The hard drive has to be a cleaned and functional drive in order for any operating system to be installed. 2. Your laptop seems to have issues with power but I am speculating here. Please provide more information as to what you are having an issue with. a. hard drive capacity b. how old is the PC and the hard drive device c.Does the screen go to the splash ( that is the logo of the manufacturer? d.Do you have a known good battery and recharger I hope this helps. Have a good day!
Because you lost two devices, the DVD and the wireless mini card, I believe your problem is a drivers issue. You should make sure you do not have any Malware that is removing these drivers. If you have access to the Internet download and install Malwarebytes. It has a quick scan that will ID any infections. Then get the newest drivers for those two devices from Dell's support site. Before you install the drivers, remove those devices in Control Panel.
The copy of Windows XP software is not licensed to your computer. Thus the product key you are using is invalid. The only way is to buy a copy of Windows XP and use that product key license. I have heard of software that will find the product key of software programs. You could try to Google “software key finder” or something like that and see which is cheaper.
