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

Solution:

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

http://www.nliteos.com/

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

You have to disable AHCI in th ebios and run the HDD as IDE. Win XP won't pick up the hard drive under AHCI.

Can't get printer installed


Depending on your operating system, the driver is available for download or built into your operating system. If you have Vista or Win 7, power your printer up and plug in the USB cable to your computer. The operating system will install the driver by itself. If you have Win XP or Win 2000, goto HP.com/support and then type in your printer and choose Software and Drivers. Click on drivers once it expands and download the driver to install it.

Installer of hp Deskjet 810C on on my laptop since I could not use my hp deskjet 810C printer


Can you please verify that the drivers that is installed for HP 810C is proper as per the operating system.

EX: if you have Win XP then you need to install the HP 810C driver for Win XP. If you have Vista's driver for that printer then it would not work.

So install the proper driver as per the operating system and everything should work fine.

Thanks
Jimmy

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.
