Re: how to install windows xp in hp pavilion dv4-1125nr...
You should install Windows XP that came with your computer with the recovery program that is built-in with an HP computer. The Windows that comes with your computer includes all the drivers and software needed specifically for an HP Laptop.
Here's a link to HP's website outlining all the ways to Recover your Laptop and reinstall your Windows XP Operating System back to factory default including how to create a set of your own Recovery Disks:

They only have windows XP drivers for that series !!!
Just Try this
- Open Device Manager (in the Start search field, enter Device Manager andselect it)
- The devices for which drivers did not install are shown inthe Other Devices section.
- Right click on the audio device and select Update devicedriver
- Select the Search automatically for updated device driver
The newer systems do have to have drivers for everything. The best way to do this is to reinstall Vista, it has a hard drive manager built in and you can cut the hard drive in half or cut it as big or as asmall as you want. Then install XP on the second half install a boot up manager and have two systems on one computer, this is how i did mine. I used Vista till I got My Xp running like I wanted and I use Vista very little now.
burn the ISO disc and boot from cd rom and get it repair it automatically.
if you want to installed windows XP or 98;the reason why your hard disk could not be detected is your hard drive is SATA. disable any sata setting in your BIOS IDE configuration( if setting is not available then download SATA driver and Nlite ;make a bootable windows xp disc with SATA driver pre installed . this is solve your problem
You're Hard Drive may be dead. If XP is starting to install and then it goes to the Blue Screen of Death, that's most likely your problem. There's a slight chance that you're power inverter has a fluctuating power level that is causing a disruption, but that's very unlikely. Have you done any tests with any boot CD's to check the hard drive's function?
Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd
this specific model HP 6735 was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd
just download sata drivers from intel and nlite from the link and install the software integrate these drivers and burn ur cd incl them and then install normally as u were installing them earlier now it will recognize ur drive simple for more info how to do check this out
