I was just wondering, How do you install a new hard disk drive in a laptop? I'm planning to upgrade my operating system to Windows XP when I get my new hard disk (I'm going to order them both at the same time), and I was just thinking... could I just shove (not literally) the new drive in and insert the XP CD and install XP completely new on the drive, or would I have to copy everything from the old drive to the new drive and then install XP? (I don't want anything on the hard drive I have now. All my docs are on a flash drive thing)
It's kinda confusing... because, to me, it sounds like it'd work. But, things to do with computers are never as simple as they sound (or as I think they are).
Please help someone.
