I have a HP Pavilion XE748, 700 processor, 325 memory.
I have never had do replace a hard drive before, but I know I can do the physical work. The problem I'm having or think I will have is how do I get the new drive working with my machine.
Once I have the new hdd installed, how do I get a windows application (ME, XP, etc.) loaded so I can load all the other software programs I'll be using?
What I would like to do is load Windows ME and then immediately upgrade to XP. The problem I foresee is that I do not have Windows ME on disc, the only thing that came with my system was HP Recovery disks. I do however, have the Windows XP upgrade disc, but I don't think I can use it without having Windows ME in place first.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
