It turns out the OS that HP sent me is all in French. They are sending me another copy.
Thank you so much love. I guess I am going to have to buy a SP2 cd because the only way I can find to get it is to download and upgrade and that defeats my purpose. I will just have to wait I guess. But I do have a new hd. I got a WD 320 SATA to go into an older system. Hope it improves functions.
Just download the SP2 service pack and integrate it with your SP1 and you're ready to go!!!!!!!!!
I think the default drive setting should be fine and you should not need the datalife tools. They are just stuff to test out the drive.
Or we could just use a live cd and mount the drive and save all data on a usb stick...
Not for the noob, however.
I would like to thank you very much this worked like a charm. You all on here are wonderful. So helpful and kind. I appreciate it.
