Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
My Laptop Hp compaq nc6000 is giving me some problems and I wanted to format it, but there's no way be which I can get to configure the BIOS to boot from CD in order to format it, I also tried installing the Windows through the CD, but it gives me this "Setup Information file D:\i386\COMPDATA\NTCOMPAT.INF is invalid" error each time. Please what can I do to successfully format/reinstall my Laptop's Windows to XP servoce pack 2
I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the cd...it took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally worked...you might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*

Are you able to use F10 at the bios in order to get into the Boot menu? If appears that you probably need to reformat or redo your partitiions and then reinstall. I assume that you are booting from a xp sp2 cd or are you trying to boot from the HP reinstall disk?
