Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I formatted my HP pavilion using UBUNTU. Then i tried to install XP however it says that it is not able to detect my hard disk while insatlling the . i do not know if my hard disk has crashed or some minor problem which can be fixed?
I also tried the laptop to self check the hard disk. however that too failed. the steps were after switching on > F10> diagonostic> detect hard disk. And it says the status as failed.
So do i need to change my hard disk as i do not know if it has crashed?
UBUNTU is a version Linux its formatting is different than Windows. If you are trying to setup a dual boot system (ability to boot linux or windows) my suggestion is that you partition the HDD install windows on one partition and then windows on the other. or just use seperate HDD. >>>>
If you just want windows installed low level format the HDD and windows should be able to recognize the drive. >>>>
you can low level format using POWERMAX - download and burn to cd >>> powermax4.09.iso go to http://digilander.libero.it/YorkOne/powermax/
>>>> the cd will be bootable just pop it in and reset
Good luck dont forget to RATE :]

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.
