Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Some of my old softwares could not work with the Vista on the new hp pavillion dv6000 I bought recently. I plan to format and install windows XP (since a lower version of operating system ie XP cannot be installed on a PC with a higher version of OS already installed ie Vista in order to have dual operating systems as alternative) but I do not have the drivers for the change of OS. Please, may you assist me.
You can not dual boot with oem software from HP. I run dual boot linux and XP. I tried everything to get vista to work in the dual boot. Here are your options.
Get a full copy of windows vista and XP with keys. Windows vista can not be the HP Cd for reinsatlation of windows. It has to be a stand alone copy of Vista. Back up data. Format drive, install xp, install vista.
Option 2 see it there is to uyse a virtualization software I use Kubuntu (Linux) with virtualbox and I used the HP disk to instll in the virtual machine. It is not a perfect system but it allows me to work on vista, and xp while never having to dualboot. think of it as windows in windows. or I like windows in Linux. http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
Is the download page for virtual box.. let me know if you need more help.

Try to download belarc advisor software. Run this in your vista OS and send it to me so I can check your hardware specs. This is the only way to avoid problems in the future or before you start the formatting.

~To download the manufacturers and
therefore correct drivers
or specific software;
Always get your drivers
from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.
If you were to log on to the hp.com
web site, usually one is able to download if
available, by model number,
All available Driver
If the driver is not
available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are
This is the best way of ensuring up to
date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!
are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer
manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.
I hope this helps.
