hmmmmm,forget my previous message.just go here http://www.lancelhoff.com/how-to-install-windows-xp-on-a-dv9000-laptop/ and follow the instructions.they are simple and there are images to help you.if u find it difficult,there is another way,more simple but u will not have the advantages of the sata (perfomance and speed of ur hard disk,not a big deal for a simple user).just enter bios and disable sata nattive support and and windows will find hard disk at setup.if u choose this option u need to follow at least the instructions until the creation of the cd
