    what kind of disk are you using ? Full, OEM, Upgrade?
    Tryentering the system BIOS Hit F2 key at boot, and change the bootsettings, to boot from the CD-ROM drive before booting from the harddrive and also change SATA HDD enable. Save it and and restart it. After this insert a Bootable Disk of windows Xp Sp2 and press any key of keyboard. ok
    thanks

Hi,if your laptop built in windows is not windows 8 or it is a dos version you must download and check the user manual from dell.com to make sure your laptop support windows 8 and has hardware drivers and has minimum hardware requirement for it,
if its dos version and support windows 8 you must get the original version of windows and check the manual to install it;
if its a windows xp or windows 7 version so you must go to dell.com search your laptop serial number and find this message or google it
"how to migrate dell (serial number)laptop from windows 7 or xp to windows 8"

Have 2 dell inspiron 1525s, can I use the hdd from one in the other without having to reformat the good hdd


Swapping hard drives from one computer do not work because of hardware differences even between same brands and models.
You can install Windows XP on his computer but you need the Windows XP installation CD and you will need to use the product installation code from your computer. It is printed on the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop.

I JUST GOT A USED DELL INSPIRON 4150 AND IT NEEDS TO BE RESTORED I WANT TO KNOW IF THE WINDOWS XP COMES WITH THE DELL CD THAT WAS MADE FOR THE LAPTOP IM IN NEED OF HELP WAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RESORING...


The restore discs that came with the laptop are perfect for restoring the unit. You do not need to go and buy a new windows the key printed on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop will activate windows after a restore. make sure after you complete the restore you update windows fully and install antivirus/antispyware software.
