Receive Cd Windows Xp - 3000 N200

When I bought my laptop I was stupid. I have not made any recovery cd.

Now I have neither Windows nor the recovery partition...

I tried to borrow a Windows XP installation CD from my friend, but the installation does not recognize the hard drive.
How can I fix? Can I receive a Windows installation cd by Lenovo?

Thanks.

go into your bios and change the hdd mode from achi to compatibility.

 

Now you can use the aftermarket XP pro OS.

Thank you very much. Now the installation begins. But it says that the product key is incorrect. I copied the label under the notebook! How is this possible?

your label is the OEM XP pro key and not the retail XP pro key, they are not interchangeable in the XP system, unlike Vista and Win 7.  Call Microsoft and ask them about it.
