I was looking for step-by-step install guide to putting new hard drive and loading Windows XP on my Dell Inspiron E1505?? I purchased a WD 320GB SATA hard drive to replace my dead 80gb hard drive....Dell...


All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

How can i format my laptop


Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.

Step 2

Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating system floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.

Step 3

Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.

Step 4

Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XP will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.

Step 5

Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.

Step 6

Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.

How to formet my acer laptop


Back up your data. Before formatting your hard drive, it is essential that you back up all of the data you would like to access after the format is completed.
  • Step 2 Insert your Windows XP sp2 CD and restart your computer. If you own an Acer laptop, you most likely will be running Windows XP.
  • Step 3 Press "enter" when the welcome to setup page appears. Press the F8 key to accept the Windows licensing agreement.
  • Step 4 Select your CD drive as your boot device. You will want to boot your computer through the Windows start-up CD instead of booting from your hard drive.
  • Step 5 Follow the on-screen prompts and click "yes" when you are asked if you would like to format your C drive. If you click "yes," the formatting process will finish, and you will have successfully formatted your hard drive.

    Step by step tell me how i can format my windows vista lapy


    Are you sure you want to format and install clean, or do you want to reset to factory defaults,the way it was when the computer was new? If you want to restore, it depends on make and model.

    To format:

    Boot from your Vista DVD
    Follow prompt up until it asks where to instal
    Highlight your current Vista installation
    Select Advance
    Select Format

    I need to format the laptop


    If you do not have the drivers for the devices that are installed on your laptop, then download from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site, make sure they are for your model laptop (eg. Video, audio, modem LAN etc.) before you format and reinstall Windows..

    Follow these steps.
    1. Boot up the laptop and press F12 function key to get a list of boot devices, select the CD drive.
    2. Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD drive.
    3. Press the space bar to start the bootup from CD
    4. During the install process you delete the existing partition/s and create a new partition.
    5. The next step is to format the partition - do a NTFS full format not a quick format
    6. Follow the instructions to install windows.
    7. After Windows completed the installation ,check on which device drivers didn't install and install these drivers.
