Get a copy of windows 7. Put it in your DVD drive. Reboot the PC and follow the instructions. It should boot to the disc drive, if not, you will need to go into setup and change the pimary boot device to DVD drive.

Installing windows 7 isn't difficult. First, you need the disk to install it from. If you don't have that, Microsoft no longer sells this version, so it will be harder.
If you want to keep your programs and data, there is a package, "PC Mover" that you can buy that will help you preserve all your data and programs. I've used this many times to help upgrade systems like yours.

if you don't have the cd with the drivers and utilities, then you can download the drivers online with another computer. (you will need a thumb drive or cd to save it on) you will also need to make sure you know what brand of ethernet card your computer came with. once you get that ethernet card working, you can get online and download the remaining drivers, possibly through windows update. be sure to select custom update, not express, so it will search for the hardware drivers for you.

To get Windows to recognize the 2nd HDD, you have to initialize it in disk management.
As far as the drive letter for the OS install, that was caused by the HDD not having an existing partition and other drives in the system having one (Either USB Drive, Printer with a card reader, 2nd Internal HDD)
Here is a Microsoft article on how to change it, but you'll notice MS doesn't recommend you try it. (Personally, I can live with ah HDD with a drive letter other then C:, so can Windows.)
In the future, when installing XP, boot to the CD, run the install to the point of formatting the hard drive. Once formatted, turn off the computer, reboot to the XP install again, the HDD will be assigned C:
As far as the drivers go, they needed to be installed in this order:

SOURCE: Want to Boot from dvd ROM
when the pc in post usually on dells bios there is a boot menu option it is usually f12
if you don't know what your doing in the bios it is not a good place to test your skills after pressing F12 just choose cd rom for boot

No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.
