This is a Vista laptop with a SATA hard drive. Windows XP does not have the SATA drivers, you therefore must slipstream the drivers to a new installation disk

Check your BIOS configuration, can the BIOS detect the hard disk?
If not you either have a faulty hard disk or it needs reseating.

After reseating and the hard drive is still not found, then it is faulty, especially if it is not spinning up or it is making clicking sounds.
Therefore you need to purchase a new one.

Installed an exchanged motherboard on my hp pavillion dv 9081ea laptop. hard drive not getting detected. hard drive has ubuntu 8.04 and windows xp sp3 installed on it


Did you bother to check if the new motherboard was compatabe with your hard drive? Because sometimes, the slots and stuff are, but the motherboard functions differently if the hard drive is not compatable by model. Check again, and maybe, the hdd wasn't put it wright or something.

Anyways, hope this helps.

New hdd for laptop from Nippon Labs


Yes you can format this drive from your XP machine, or in vista (or xp for that matter) right click on my computer and then left click on manage.

When the computer management screen comes up highlight "Disk Management" on the left side. This will then display your drives in the right side. From here you can right click on the drive and create partitions, format etc.

You will need ghost or some other cloning software if you want to image the old drive to the new one. However if you have restore disks for the computer you should also be able to just install the OS on the new drive.

Hope this helps

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.
