Old Dell Latitude

By killprogram ·
Ok i have an old dell latitude laptop with a Seagate hard drive, Model ST9300AG,and a new(er) hard drive Maxtor Model 2B020H1 that already has windows on it,the laptop has now cd drive,just a 3&1/2'' floppy,and it didnt have an operating system(I deleted Windows So I Could Play Around with DOS,but dos was deleted as well.)but i couldnt find anything that would fit on a floppy disk,so i took out the HD(Seagate) only to find my other one(Maxtor)wont fit in the laptop,but i Need it to so i basically my question is,does anybody know of a step by step guide that will show me how to hook it up and it will actually work?

P.S.I dont really care if it is totally mangled afterwards,just for it to work,i can make a new case for everything but only if it will turn on

P.S.Dos Wasn't working in the terms that when i turned it on the screen would say "non-system disk or disk error please replace and press any key when ready" so now i need to replace it.oh and by the way it has been decommissioned for several months now
