The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

SOURCE: Dear sir, I purchased a new laptop compaq

Well to be honest that laptop i see has been out for a while so not sure ho wnew it is...
But if you are doing a Install of the OS and it is not going, then it could be a problem with the actual hard drive so i can say, call Hp and see if it still under warranty if it is new and have them have a go at it, if it is not under warranty then it could be the hard drive, OS install will go through if all is well, Hardware boots up first in initial computer startup.
So if it is stating that it cannot find one, then unfortunately there is only that much you can do..
In bios the only thing you may see is boot sequence, and if you see that and enter into it then you should see something like..
HDD hard drive CD/DVD drive Network Adapter
then whatever else is there to boot...
So call HP and try to see about that...

If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive, then it could faulty.
If this laptop is new, then it is still under warranty, take it back to the supplier for a warranty repair or a replacement.
If you try to repair it, you may void your warranty.

Compaq presario c700 all driver wanted


If you are purchasing the laptop from a retailer, there will most likely be a disk with the laptop (sometimes called a Restoration Disk) that contains everything that will wipe the hard drive and reinstall everything so it is back to how it left the manufacturer. If it didn't come with any disks, I have found:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/ProductList.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3466274

Just click the exact model, then OS and then they will give you a list of (I think) all the drivers you should need for a Compaq Presario c700.
