I have a hp pavilion zv5000 series laptop with a corrupt hard drive in it. I was also given a acer travelmate 240 laptop to salvage parts off of for the hp laptop. I took the hard drive out of the acer laptop to use in the hp laptop but there is a problem with the restore install disks working on the acer hard drive in the hp laptop. Both were running windows XP on the hard drive. I formatted the acer hard drive and began to install a fresh copy of windows XP but now the system has seized up and I am not able to do anything to get the install to continue or to start over at all. Is there something that I am missing that I should have done by putting the acer hard drive to the hp laptop? Will I have the same problem with a brand new Sata hard drive?
