Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
While installing the XP in the HP campac Presario laptop. Its shows the error " Hard drive not detected" in the Blue Screen. i think may be the problem is "SATA drive is not detected". please help to slove the probelm. Any SATA drivers is required ?
Sata hard disk does not require driver, however the sata controller which belong to any manufacturer may require. You have to go to driver cdrom, browse for IDE OR SATA if you cannot find it the clue is "RAID" find the RAID driver, you will also find the sata controller driver
example only: si3112.cat, si3112.inf, siblabla.bla....
copy all the files in folder (do not copy folder!! only files). Then put floppy disk in drive, make sure you boot from cd-rom.
Start XP installation then follow:
Press F6 for third party SCSI or driver installation at the beginning of text mode installation. Press 's' when setup asks if you want to specify an additional device, and insert the diskette then press 'Enter'. From the menu presented next, select the controller installation process that corresponds to the version of Windows being installed and press 'Enter'.
4. Press 'Enter' again when prompted to continue on with text mode setup.
5. Follow the setup instructions to select your choice for partition and file system.
6. After setup examines your disks, it will copy files from the CD to the hard drive selected above and restart the system. After restart the setup process will resume to finish the installation.
