I've got a 2nd hand HP NX6125 notebook. I replaced the faulty HDD and is trying to install Win XP. I don't have the original Restore CD. I'm using a OEM installation disk.
The install begins correctly; I can create a partition and format the HDD.
The problem is after the first reboot of the installation process the notebook starts up and only display a blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner.
I did googled this problem and it seems the only way to install Win Xp is with the restore cd, which I don't have. I also phoned hp support to obtain this disk but the notebook is out of warranty and they refuse to supply me.
Ubuntu is installing correctly. Please help so I can install Win XP
