SOURCE: Original setup was interrupted
press F8 key (just after BIOS screen) at the next cold reboot and you will see a DOS screen with 3 or more options. Read each of them and I think you will see one option is to resume setup. This option places the system at a safe entry point to continue the setup. Another option may read "cancel setup and restore previous system"...this one may be used if you cannot get the "resume setup" option after repeated tries.

Presario was design for windows vista. if I am sure the windows you're installing cannot find the hard disk. I it is not compatible with the machine, look for I higher windows version and I recommend windows XP professional service pack 2 as the lowest you should use.

Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".

If you have downloaded the drivers from HP site and they don't work, on sound drivers you often have to install manually i.e. "have the disk" and then point to where the files have been unzipped. I have done this a number of times and it works but I can't remember the exact steps to get to "have the disk" - if you have trouble let me know and I will look up the steps. JC

It means Operating System was not installed completely. Do the followings:
1. Insert the CD or DVD of Operating System and then boot your machine.
2. Simply follow instructions to screen to complete the installation.
3. Note that an Operating System have TWO steps to complete before we decleare that OS is installed. In first step it format the hard drive, copy setup files from CD/DVD to formated hard drive in a temp directory. This step is called "SETUP". Your computer reboot itself after this step. It does not mean operating system is installed.
4. In 2nd step, make sure CD/DVD is still in your machine, just watch while OS starts 'INSTALLATION" . You will be able to view the progress.
OS might ask you input OS product key, computer name and some basic network information which you should have handy.
Once Installation is complete, your PC will reboot and NOW you have a full fledge OS on your PC.
