    i just got this computer and it didn't have a hard drive in it. so i installed an 80g hd.,formatted it and now i am trying to install win xp pro. and running into some install problems. i am able to partion the drive and go threw the whole setup process but then when the computer reboots it says that it can't find the o.s..do i need to have the compaq boot disc?
