DV7 is not designed for XP, to get around the issue you may be able to change the BIOS setting for the SATA controller to work in IDE mode(depending on the BIOS) or you can use the XP installer option to install a SATA/RAID driver during the installer boot sequence. To offer you this I will need to know the model # and Serial # on the white sticker on the bottom of your laptop or the make and model of the SATA controller.
Try the Bios option and reply back with the requested info if it's not a viable option and I will see if there is an XP driver available for your controller.

You could have a faulty disk controller. Try inserting a different working hard disk into the HP and see if it can detect it in the BIOS. If not then the disk controller is faulty and this is a motherboard problem. A replacement motherboard may not be worth it, put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive.
