Choose your operating system from the list. Then on the next window , near the bottom of the list you will find the Win Flash firmware. Click on it and follow the instructions very carefully. I stress carefully. You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

get a hard drive kit that will connect it via usb or get a PCI card that will allow you to install the PCI card into a PCI slot and then attach the hard drive to the PCI card ( ensuring you select the correct PCI card ) ie if its a sata drive then get a sata PCI controller card and if its IDE then get an IDE PCI controller card.
Also check for motherboard updates for your computers motherboard and also check in the bios to ensure LBA is enabled and that its detecting the hard drive.
Operating system not found. Check hard drive for loose connection power and interface. Reseat it to be sure (power cord disconnected and unit totally turn off before you reseat it).
Go to Bios setting check whether hard drive is been detected or re-detect it to refresh. If harddrive is not detected. Check again for loose wiring. If now detected, reboot it should until the end of operating system loading.
If it say again " requires sytem disk" ,corrupted OS --- repair or reinstall.
Do the neccesary jumper cable settings. then manually detect it through your bios. If not detected, try to replace the ide cable. if still not detected, try to feel the hard drive if it spins, if not, the had drive is damage.
see after teh utility named Partition Magic, It will solve these typoe of errors. Another cheap option is to try to format it with a vintage computes BIOS, HDD Formattion option, Not available in newer BIOS.
Tyr aldo Fdisk /mbr in the DOS PROMPT , booting with D.O.S. Ver. 6.0 Anyone remember this Operating system?
And the last option is to format the drive undel LINUX and thern get it back to Windows XP.
If the BIOS is not detecting your hard drive, then there are two possible suspects here. Could just be your hard drive or it also be your motherboard.
If you have already reseated your hard drive and memory and the symptoms are still the same, then go to the nearest local computer shop that sells HP. Have them try a known-good hard drive on your system. If it works, purchase a new hard drive. If it doesn't work, your mobo needs to be replaced.
