While in safe mode with network connectivity, go to trend micro website and do a free online scan. If you have Windows Defender updated, then try a full system scan, also while in safe mode.

When you boot up the laptop press F10 to bring up an list of devices to boot up from, select the CD drive.
OR
Go into the BIOS setup and to the Boot start up and move the CD to the top as the first boot device with the hard disk as the second device.
Your laptop will now boot uo with the Windows Vista installation CD.

http://www.4shared.com/file/oE15gXll/killdisk_and_boot-cd-iso.html
get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data

Post Boot Freeze


It freezes because one of the programs set to start at boot crashes. To identify which immediately after booting open Task Manager and look at the processes - one should reach 99% CPU use. Once you have found it stop it from launching at boot or just uninstall it.

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

You don't need to get a command prompt to format the hard drive.
Just boot up with the CD as the first boot device. Press F12 just after you switch on the laptop, then select the CD as the temporary boot device, insert the Windows XP install CD in the drive.
When the install process starts and displays the partitions, delete the existing partitions, then create a new partition, and then do a full NTFS format, not a quick format.
Now ou are on your way for a new Windows install.
