During xp installation. Delete partition, and re create new partition, Then all the contents of the HDD will be erased permanantly and will be clean for you.

I cant download op cd


If the new hard disk is a SATA hard disl then the problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Hp 530 with vista buiesness


If it is your computer your login should be enough for the admin - if not login as the admin which will be your login id. If you are a user on this computer than you need the owner to login and this will resolve your problem. Since you got this from your school chances are they never wiped clean the system and you should do so if you are the new owner of the computer. The owner manual you should have with this computer will give you the steps you need in order to wip it clean and reset to manufacutor settings.

Installing new OS


If you chose delete partition, ensure that you have saved your data, this will delete all data and format the hard drive to install your new system.

It is the est way to get rid of viruses, bue it will delete everything from hard disk.
If you chose delete partition, chose create new partition afterward, and then format. That is the way it works.

You can install windows XP, but you will need to find the drivers to your soundcard, dvd driver etc.. for it to work properly as new. After installing XP you can get them here at the Sony website. Install each driver and make sure it was configured properly.
