Am installing new hard drive in laptop to replace exsisting hard drive that is corrupt.

Is there anything i need to do before fitting hard drive and trying to install windows??

Possibly you may have to configure the bios settings to boot from cd first as opposed to the hdd.

Xp should take care of this on install,choose NTFS and not FAT.
