How to install XP on pre loaded Vista in HP Laptop

I have HP Pavilion dv 2519TU laptop coming with Vista Premium pre installed. I try to install XP Pro with Service pack 2. But I face an error that "No hard disk drive found". So how to install XP? If I need driver for SATA hard disk where do I get this and how to install as I have no floppy drive in laptop. I have Fujitsu MHW2160BH PL. In device manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers I found Intel(R)82801 HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller and Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850.

I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.

SilverDragon, In order for the USB F6 solution to work, he's gonna have to have a very specific brand of memory stick, which he might not have. Probably easier to buy a removable USB floppy drive. I'd also suggest he downloads every XP driver for his laptop FIRST. This would not be the first case where there is NO XP driver for a system component, I've already run into that. If he cannot download or find every hardware driver, best to learn how to use Vista. A helpful site for the procedure would be http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/please-help-with-installing-xp-over-vista ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

XP on HP Pavilion dv2000


For the laptop with no hard drive detected, this is most likely because Windows XP does not recognize SATA drives by default, which the laptop most likely has. To solve this, you will need to enter the BIOS setup utility (most likely Delete or F1 on startup). From there, you will need to change the drive mode to Compatibility mode. I'm not sure where this would be, but if you check in your laptop manual, you can probably find this somewhere.

For the 2519TU, download and install this for the LAN driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp30001-30500/sp30264.exe it should work just fine.

Good luck!

Installation of Windows XP Pro on Hp Pavilion laptop


what is the error message that you're getting.. usually windows vista will not downgrade your operating system to windows xp. You may need to remove vista before you can load xp.
make sure to save a back up of all of your important files before you do that.

How can i install windows Xp on hp pavilion dv 2601


assuming this came with Vista pre installed, you will need to purchase a copy of XP and my advice is to keep Vista and then instal XP on a different partition on your hard drive, assuming you have 2 partitions, if not then you will need some softwsre like psrtition magic or use the XP cd to set up a new partition.

Problems with hp2601tx


Your computer came with a restore cd I am sure, so you can get vista back later if you need.

Here is a tutorial made just for you. You will need to own an XP CD. pre-installed-windows-vista-computer/">http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/install-windows-xp-on-your-pre-installed-windows-vista-computer/

You can buy laptop coolers almost anywhere for $20 to $30. They will get hot. I try to keep my laptop on a flat open surface to allow maximum air flow. Setting it on you lap insulates it and it gets warm. Nothing out of the ordinary.

You may be able to download an updated driver from HP that will fix your web cam problem. There may also be another program running that is trying to manage the web cam also. Take a look at your running programs and close any that are related to the web cam and see if you error still occurs.
