It would help if you'd post the model/model number of your laptop. Why do you want to install a 10+ year old operating system that will no longer be supported in less than a year? If it's the only Windows disk you have, I suggest you try a modern version of Linux instead.

More than likely your laptop has a SATA HDD which will need drivers in order for XP to recognize it. But before going any further, make sure XP drivers are available for the devices (chipset, video, sound, network, wireless, etc).

First question is, was the new laptop ordered with Windows Operating System or was it ordered with Free DOS?

If it was bought with Free DOS, you have to buy a Windows Version, to install it to your laptop.
