Laptop hard drives are 2.5" and are usually 5400RPM. Desktop hard drives are 3.5" and usually 7200 RPM. The laptop hard drive would need an adapter to mount it, at the very least. Because of the slow speed it is not a good drive to use to run Windows.

You can however, buy a USB adapter to use the drive externally.

It appears you have a SATA interface hard drive. Could be 160GB or 250GB.

✔ Best Answer
It's really not that old, why are you trashing it? It will easily run Win7 or even Win8 (yuck) as long as it has enough RAM.
