Windows can't find any hard drives...when installing xp


It sounds possible that your Windows XP install CD does not contain the necessary hard disk device drivers for the drive used in your Dell Vostro laptop and you would need to load these drivers separately during the XP install when the option is given to use third-party device drivers.

Some laptops may provide options in their BIOS settings to use a compatibility mode of operation for newer SATA hard drives that will make them visible to bootable utilities such as disk imaging software and older OS install CD's.

I am trying to downgrade my HP pavilion dv6930 laptop O/S from windows vista to windows xp ,but in the process I get the message " No hard drive present "


Check your BIOS setting, if you can find a setting either IDE Controller or SATA AHCI Controller. set to Native IDE. Or during setup process you can press F6 to install appropriate third party driver to windows XP..

I have problem to install window xp in my laptop, which already have window vista....my notebook donot support to install xp..please tell is there any way to install xp...


What is your problem specifically? Is it that there is no hard disk detected when you try to install windows xp?

Try using third party software to detect the hard disk on your laptop
Try this link. It will basically give you your hard drive driver while installing windows xp. You will also need an external floppy disk drive if you dont have diskette drive in your laptop.

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


yes

because it's using an AHCI  SATA driver

there 2 ways to install XP on your laptop

  1. If you own an external floppy disk. You can insert the driver before the installation begin. the setup will ask you to insert third party driver by pressing F6 at the first of installation. Press F6 then insert your SATA driver. choose it. then setup will detect your hdd. you can download the SATA driver form here:http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/HP-Pavilion-dv2054ea-SATA-Driver-550.shtml
  2. It's very hard to find an external floppy drive today, unless if you are an OEM or retailler. second way is you can insert the driver to XP installation CD, but it's very complicated. Or you can download a XP installation CD with sata driver here:http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html

Problem in XP installation in the HP presario Note book


Sata hard disk does not require driver, however the sata controller which belong to any manufacturer may require. You have to go to driver cdrom, browse for IDE OR SATA if you cannot find it the clue is "RAID" find the RAID driver, you will also find the sata controller driver
example only: si3112.cat, si3112.inf, siblabla.bla....

copy all the files in folder (do not copy folder!! only files). Then put floppy disk in drive, make sure you boot from cd-rom.

Start XP installation then follow:
Press F6 for third party SCSI or driver installation at the beginning of text mode installation. Press 's' when setup asks if you want to specify an additional device, and insert the diskette then press 'Enter'. From the menu presented next, select the controller installation process that corresponds to the version of Windows being installed and press 'Enter'.
4. Press 'Enter' again when prompted to continue on with text mode setup.

5. Follow the setup instructions to select your choice for partition and file system.

6. After setup examines your disks, it will copy files from the CD to the hard drive selected above and restart the system. After restart the setup process will resume to finish the installation.

Good Luck

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


For the laptop with no hard drive detected, this is most likely because Windows XP does not recognize SATA drives by default, which the laptop most likely has. To solve this, you will need to enter the BIOS setup utility (most likely Delete or F1 on startup). From there, you will need to change the drive mode to Compatibility mode. I'm not sure where this would be, but if you check in your laptop manual, you can probably find this somewhere.

For the 2519TU, download and install this for the LAN driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30001-30500/sp30264.exe it should work just fine.

Good luck!

Windows instaling problem


When you disable for installation it normally does not work correctly when enabled again. Go to Hp's website and download the SATA software. You will need a floppy drive. The driver for it extracts to the floppy. If your laptop did not come equipped with a floppy you will have to use an external usb floppy. No off brand it has to be a name brand. Normally the generic floppies do not work. Once you have the software extracted to the floppy. Boot the computer to with xp cd. When the blue screen displaysa message accross the bottom with say "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver. The computer will read the floppy and select one of the choices preferably windows default.

Hope this helps you
