If you can get your hands on a Windows XP cd, it will partition and format the drive for you allowing you to install from scratch. You would then just plug in the license key from the sticker on your laptop. As far as the recovery disk on the original CD, there might be an option on bootup that would have you push an F key to access it. Or you can usually order them online. It's not too hard to get the drivers you need from online so I would just go with any XP disk you can get your hands on. You'll be using your own license so you can even borrow one.

Look on the back edge of your old HDD where all the gold pins are and on one side there is a group of 4 pins in two rows of two... and see if there is a tiny jumper installed across two of them (white or black about 1/8" tall and 1/16th wide).
Now look on the new HDD and see if there is one there. The NEW HDD must be set up exactly like the OLD one or it won't be detected by BIOS or Windows.
I am beginning to think your LT has the CD as MASTER and the HDD as SLAVE, which may require adding or removing a jumper. Some new ones come with, some without ;-) I didn't think of this earlier
Check that. Email me the result

ok, theres a small issue with the raid controller. You have to install a 3rd party raid driver (its on the dell cd) to continue, OR, you can set that BIOS's hard drive controls to ATA or LEGACY (legacy would likely work best, but youd have no 'raid' functions, but who sets up raid drives on a notebook?). Your last option is use the dell discs to restore, and inssert the windws disc when prompted
