    Hello all, i have had a XP disc for a while on my current PC, i recently purchased a oldish laptop, fitted in a new HDD and all that in it, installing XP etc then comes up to the parition bit.. done tha and when installing it comes up with " fatal error " and all this crap, now when i start the laptop up it just loads straight onto the XP install again, wont let meopen up a restore or whatever, what can i do? (its a bootable XP disc)

    i have got a 98 SE disc, if i loaded thatup in the drive, would that go over the XP install crap or what?

    Cheers.. kinda getting me down (n) :(

    Laptop.. 20 GB HDD..Office 2000 (originally)
