I Am installing winodws 7 on it because well my brother was using it he got a bsod and now when the laptop starts up it says:
Intel® Boot Agent GE v1.2.45
Copyright © 1997-2007, Intel Corporation
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
Operating System not found
I am using a windows 7 retail DVD.
About your second question...
I guess I'm installing it on a clean computer?
I bet it would be easier to just get into the windows XP OS and do an upgrade but i have no idea why it just stopped working.
When the OS did work i used windows 7 upgrade advisor so i know the laptop is windows 7 capable.
I do not know whether the drive is sata\ide\scsi.
