You tried to reload XP on a laptop on loan from a friend?
I think you've just lost one. How come he gave you the CD in the first
place???

1) Apologize to friend.

2) Promise to never, ever touch friend's computer again.

3) Reimburse friend for all repair costs.

It’s probably a hardare problem with the laptop since you say you
get BSOD even when trying to install windows. I carnt say "This is
wrong with it" becasue from here, it’s kinda hard to tell. How ever
I can say that it is most likly the hard drive thats at fault, as it
the parts in the computer that have moving parts are the ones the
brake most commonly, but it could be oher things as well (that are
less likly) such as dogy RAM, senile motherboard etc.

Likely is a hardware issue.

"Expensive to repair" is relative to what is wrong. If it is a fiarly new
laptop - then it may be under warranty and your friend may be out only time.
They loaned it to you - so needing it 24/7 is obviously not a concern for
them.

I would return the laptop to them and explain exactly what happened and what
you tried to do - following the advice given on the screen. I would then
volunteer to pay for whatever costs happen to occur. Whether it was your
fault or faulty hardware doesn't matter really at this point - as it was in
your possession when it occurred. If it happens to be faulty hardware that
would have gone bad either way - then your friend may likely take the brunt
of the cost - if any - to repair.

Personally - I think by not telling them immediately you are making
something that is a relatively small concern into something much larger than
it should be. Notify them immediately about the situation and you'll be
better off in the long run.
