Yes, you will have to do another install of the OS if it's a blank HD.

SOURCE: Windows xp pro will not boot with new hard drive

Its hard to tell just like this without having the computer in hand to check and test the jumpers and connection and all, but quick like this i think it might be a trojan virus that corrupted the boot sectors of the old hard drive, and when you copied the stuff from the old to the new, the virus followed and infected the boot sectors of the new one too. Try to reformat completely using the original windows install disk, and not the system restore/reinstall disk and reinstall windows after the format with the original windows disk again. If I was right, it should boot up OK with a fresh format and reinstall with the real windows CD, then install a virus scan and a spyware scan and scan and clean the old drive completely 2 or 3 times to be sure theres nothing bad left on it, then try to copy the whole disc, but skip the Windows repertory, the Program Files one too and the Documents and settings one also, cause those 3 are the ones most prone to corrupting a fresh install even if there is not any viruses in them. If it does not boot up OK after formating and reinstalling Windows though and says it's unbootable, then either there is a config error in the BIOS of the laptop, or the IDE controller that drives the disk is defective. If it's the BIOS settings, it's gonna be easy enough just changing the settings and won't cost you too much, and if its the IDE controller... then that's another story cause it's integrated in the motherboard like any other computer, so basically another computer will cost less than a new motherboard for a laptop. So if that is the case and the IDE controller is shot, you can still try to use an external USB drive to run the computer but not all computers support booting from the USB though, so before buying a brand new external drive, check the BIOS first to see if it does support USB booting.

The problem most likely - the laptop is old and the BIOS most likely cannot support a hard disk with a capacity of 120Gb.
Check the capacity of the old hard disk, most likely it is about 10 to 20Gb in size and you cannot buy one these days with these capacity.

SOURCE: Fn (function) key not working

A good check of whether the Fn key is working is to display the system information as follows...
1. briefly press Fn key, and then briefly press the Esc key
or alternatively...
2. Press and hold down the Fn key, briefly press the Esc key, and then release both at the same time.
This should display the version of the system BIOS as the BIOS date or system ROM version number.
If this doesn't happen, then either one or both Fn and Esc keys are not working. In any case since your laptop is new, it should be covered by a 30-day exchange policy from the place of purchase and you should just take it back for an exchange. If you can't get it exchanged and the purchase was on your credit card, you should have purchase coverage from the credit card company as well.

SOURCE: Tried to boot from USD, CD/DVD Drive but failed. Still showing No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

To boot up from the DVD drive go into the BIOS setting - boot device order and move the DVD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
If you want to boot up with the USB then move the USB as the first device. If the USB is not listed as a boot device then it is not possible to boot up with an USB device.

How to install win xp 32bit on my hp elitebook 8440p?


XP is no longer supported, so purchase an Old Stock OS XP disc. Place it in the DVD drive and bot from it. You will have to manually destroy any newer OS otherwise Windows will block it! When installed, go to Hp's web site and download the system drivers for your machine.
Have fun!

I have win 7 on hp elitebook 8530p and i got the 0xc000000e error and i changed my boot order and i still cant boot from my cd rom


If you take the hard drive out, can the laptop boot from its DVD drive? If the laptop can boot up from DVD drive, then you need to reformat the hard drive before you install the Windows 7 using your DVD drive.
