hi, I bought a second-hand HP DV8000 laptop with no hdd, I'm going to get a second-hand 120gb sata hdd, I don't have any experience with laptops, the laptop had winxp on it before the hdd was removed,
I want to put winxp back on the laptop, is installing winxp on a laptop the same as installing winxp on a desktop? your help is appreciated

"is installing winxp on a laptop the same as installing winxp on a desktop?"

Basically, Yes, set the laptop to boot from the CD/Drive, insert the XP CD and restart the computer. Let the XP CD format the disk and install XP, remember to use the XP Code on the lable stuck to the laptop. Drivers are click here just choose your particular model.
