You can buy a small adapter that can convert a laptop hard drive so that it can plug into a regular PC. (Power and Cable) It's pretty cheap, under $10 bucks. From there you should make the hard drive bootable and maybe put the OS Setup files on there. I usually copy the CABS to c:\windows\options\cabs and then install Windows from there.
If your 440 has a CD Rom which I believe it does. See if you can boot from the CD.
This one is a couple of weeks old.....most likely the poster has moved on to other things.......and it has a related thread which got the answers.
so this one is going to be closed and sink into oblivion....
Ryan, nothing to do with with your answer...whwich I must say, sounds awlfully familiar....;)
