Answers :

Hi there
Put the cd in the drive, restart the PC and hit F2 while it starts, go to the boot options and choose the cd drive as first boot device, hit F10, save and exit, the pc will restart and then will boot from the cd, it may ask you to press any key to boot from cd, you will then see setup screen and the new operating system will start to install.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
Hey,
\015\012
\015\012its very simple, byt 160GB?? It might not work on your laptop, you may need to get a smaller hard drive.
\015\012
\015\0121. remove the old hard drive from the computer, you can generally get to it from the bottom, some models via battery some models have few screws on a cover that you can take off and its inside, for example
\015\012

\015\012
\015\012Remove the old drive, unscrew it from the HDD (HardDrive) case.
\015\012
\015\012place the new drive in the HDD (HardDrive) case. Screw it in.
\015\012
\015\012place the new drive with its case back into the computer.
\015\012
\015\012close the cover.
\015\012
\015\012Done.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Install windows, in setup, partitioning the disc into parts is optional you can have one big partition or two partitions, its really up to you,
\015\012
\015\012I currently am using the single partition style on my computer here.
\015\012
\015\012so all to one partition, did you need anything else?
\015\012
\015\012in the windows setup just press install on the empty space and it will partition it and install.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Thanks,
