I would say that was a bit harsh and this is what I would do. Insert your System disk and install a fresh system. During the installation, Windows should be clever enough to detect and format the drive. If you remove the drive and with a caddy you could try to repair the system with another pc but you may get problems. Hope this helps.
Did you plug in the printer before you installed the drivers from your installation CD? If not, you need to uninstall the hp printer drivers and unplug the usb cord from the computer.
Restart your computer, run the installation cd, and then after the HP installation says it's complete then plug the usb cable into your computer. NOTE: Some HP driver installations ask you during the install to plug in your printer so the software can find it. If thats what happens then only plug in your printers usb cable when the installation software tells you to. Once it detects your printer the installation will continue. Make sure you keep hitting next or continue until the software tells you everything is installed. Now your all in one printer should work.
The bluescreen saying about the ACPI, I had the same problem at work with a older computer. Next time you get the bluescreen read everything it says.
It tells you to press a button, I'm not sure thats why I'm telling you to read the bluescreen (windows 2000 or xp) it was f5 or f8.
You press f5 or f8 I think it was f5 since f6 is to load custom drivers.
So you press f5 when it asks you to press f6 This disables the ACPI subsystem in the setup and you should be able to install windows 2000 without any more problems. If its not f5 read the bluescreen thats where I got it!
Good luck, keep me posted and tell me if theres anything else.
