Hi there,

You need to use those 2 recovery disks. Its very simple actually, one cd will say recovery disk 1, and the other will say recovery disk2.

What you do is pop in the recovery disk 1, restart the computer with the disk in it. During the restart you will see press any key to start up from this CD. Press any key and just follow the directions.

Hello there.
I understand that your which is preinstalled with Windows Vista, you want to install Windows XP on it.

Your Notebook is not having SATA drivers for XP. that is Windows XP setup do not detect your hard drive For this you need separate SATA drivers. To get more information log on to HP.com chat support for exact SATA drivers for your model.

They will assist you better regarding the issue. You can log on to the HP chat support by clicking or the below link or copy and paste the link in address bar of a web browser.

Displays no hard drive found wen installing win xp


You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

I want to install win Xp Sp 2 but i can't do it


you need to have internet connection first then go to the website http://www.windowsupdate.com and you need to update the operating system from that site. in the process of updating it there will be an option there to update it to service pack 2 already.. sometimes you need to update other things first in the same website before that option comes up.

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
