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:

Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports IDE emulation mode. If it does turn it on and XP will install just fine.
Download and read about using nlite to incorporate sata drivers into an Windows XP installation disc. (You will need another working computer. Download nlite and insert the XP disc run nlite and select your CD as your windows install file location. Download generic sata drivers, intel has a bunch you can get for free. In the nlite menu to add drivers select folder option and select the folder with the drivers. Set anything else you want in nlite and burn the new XP disc. This disc will install just fine as it now has sata drivers.
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 can slipstream the drivers from the floppy into an ISO image of the Windows XP installation CD using a program like nLite. You can then burn the slipstream ISO image into a CD & use it to boot & install Windows XP without the need to use the floppy disk.
You can download nLite at the following link: http://www.nliteos.com/download.html After downloading the installer, install the program & start using it.
The following link describes how to use nLite to slipstraem the SATA drivers into the Windows XP installation CD.
I tried this myself, & it worked without problems. I now no longer need to use the floppy drive when installing Windows XP on my system.
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
I have never used this utility but Bootdisk.com has a solid reputation, for $4 US get access to his special utilities. FResh XP install With SATA ---- SATA1 fresh install of XP using WIN98 and SATA drivers Seems like it will install XP with SATA drivers and then you can see your hard drive.
