Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
First of all, as this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive, any retail version of windows XP will not be able to detect the Hard Drive because of which you are getting this kind of errors when trying to install XP.
However, to proceed with installing XP in your Notebook, I recommend you to disable the SATA Native Support option which will be present with Notebooks installed with Intel Processor and not with AMD Processor.
You can disable the SATA Native Support feature from the BIOS by following the instructions below :
Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to the BIOS setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab where you will find the SATA Native Support.
Press Enter to select it when the option is hilighted and set the option to Disabled.
Now, press F10 key to Save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.
By doing this, the Hard Drive in the Notebook will be detected as IDE Hard Drive and you should be able to install XP without any issues.
Please not down that the SATA Native Support option should be set to Disabled even after installing the Operating System in the Notebook.
However, I need to have the Product Number of the Notebook wich can be found printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook indicated wit P/N using which I can find the Hadware specifications of the Notebook and provide the appropriate drivers.
