I have the same computer. it is really annoying and difficult

cos basically, you first have to put in the windows xp CD it comes

with and turn in on. It will tell you to press any key to boot from

disk and you boot it. Format it onto the partition (not the

unpartitioned space) in NTFS (not quick format). Then, once its

done, the annoying bit is that you still have to install all the

drivers, so there will be a CD called resouce CD, and install the

drivers that look important
