Is the HDD an internal one which you've bought to replace your current internal Hard Drive?

Also, is the Hard Drive the same size / capacity as the original?

What Operating System are you using / trying to install - Windows XP, Vista, 7...? Are you installing a retail copy of Windows or carrying out the installation using HP's system recovery or system restore discs?
