What have you researched about the laptop, drivers or installing Windows? What have you tried doing? – Tom Wijsman Mar 28 '12 at 19:49

You don't need to install drivers to install Windows (except in cases where you're using a RAID disk controller, which the vast majority of laptops don't use). All you have to do is put the Windows DVD into the drive and reboot, booting off the DVD, and following Windows' setup installation wizard.

Install Windows from a CD (erase the Linux partition if you want) and then install the drivers from HP's web page.
