    Should work fine. Why only the 30gb? You can double that capacity for $15 more and your notebook seems to come with that capacity to begin with.

    Only possible concern I could have is an inability to install the OEM Restore CD if the HD is used in determining its authenticity as a OEM HP machine. I'd either give HP a call or find a suitable OS CD that you can use the OEM key with.

    Or get permission to use a volume-license Windows XP from your school and tell the Restore CD that came with the laptop to sod off. I never liked OEM software anyway.

    Should work fine. You're going to have to move the "caddy" or adapter from the old drive to the new. And there should be no issues with teh Restore set on that notebook. The original drive shouldn't have any Non DOS or Diag partition on with that model...
