There is one possible reason for this issue

  1. CMOS battery
Troubleshooting Steps
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Most computers today use a coin cell CMOS battery. Removed the battery and put it back. This will reset the BIOS setting to default. Change the setting and select first boot device as CD ROM. If that doesn’t work then replace the CMOS battery. After replacing the CMOS battery please change the BIOS setting and select first boot device as CD-ROM.

HP 530 won't see hard drive


Are you sure there is no usb / CD in the computer?

Try pressing F8 when the computer boots and select the HDD as the boot device.

If this works, you'll need to reset the boot order in the CMOS / BIOS.

1 many times the the CD cant load as the files in the CD are corrupt or the CD is not read by the drive corectly...so get a new WinXP CD

BIOS screen can be enabled by pressing the F1, or F2 or the Del key as on as you start the PC
3 once in BIOS screen look for boot seq and change the boot drive to the foll
1st boot device - USB CD / DVD rom drive
2nd boot device - internal CD rom drive
and so on

if you can do the above then try the WinXP installation using the external CD rom drive....
else there is a little complicated method of using a pen drive thru USB (will discuss that later) provided your BIOS alows booting from USB

Go into the bios and set the boot order to CD drive first and HARD DRIVE second.Setting the bios to defaults often doesn't set the boot order right to install an operating system

Can't use cd/dvd player - computer doesn't recognize it


try to boot the computer using cd. like you trying to install windows. if it read the cd to get into the windows setup, then cd drive is good.

1st make sure you set the option boot from cd first in the bios.
2nd place a windows setup into the drive.
3rd save and exit the bios.
4th if it ask you to press any key to enter setup then the cd drive is good.

maybe u have a windows problem, try to reinstall windows, that the easy way.

Hp laptop 530 boot mgr missing


Use your recovery disc, that should have been included with the laptop. Boot with it in the drive, or you may have to access the BIOS to boot from the drive first. Follow the instructions. Hope that helps you.

How to install win xp sp2 from cd on hp 530 laptop


1 - Place CD in the Drive
2 - Restart PC and go into Bios by pressing Del, F2 or whatever instruction the start up screen says.

3 - Go to Boot configuration and set it to Boot from CD
4 - Save and Exit
5 - Follow onscreen instructions untill you get to the Windows install screen.
6 - You may have to create a partition (Drive Letter) on your hard drive if nothing was there before, you can assign as much hard drive space as you want to this. If your not sure just use all the space available. This will be your C drive.
7 - Pick the drive you just created and install windows on it using the on screen menu. It will ask you if to format the drive, say yes and use NTFS not FAT as NTFS has more features.
8 - Just say yes to all questions asked after this point.

When windows is installed it will ask you for a CD key and to activate by going on the net, I'm afraid I can't help you with this.

HI,

There might be a problem with your cmos/bios setting. Try to set to defaults first.

the bios/cmos menu can be entered by pressing del or F2 or F10 keys during power on (before windows logo appears) depending what type of notebook.

find the boot devive or boot sequence,
select CDROM as the first boot ( or first line)
Save and reboot

good luck
