Stephane, I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this: Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Best of luck! Bryan P.S. If you want to enable SATA native mode after you have installed XP Pro check out this link: http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1042050&admit=-682735245+1161793137260+28353475

Sounds like the hard drive may be having problems. Download this bootable CD and see if any of the hard drive utilities indicate anything. You may have to replace the hard drive or cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the cd...it took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally worked...you might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

Did you check the memory? Sounds like the memory has went bad. Is it noticing all of the memory? Even if it is noticed it could still be going bad or the slot could be going bad. I have seen this happen. Are you positive that the hard drive is not bad. Did you run any test on the hard drive?
