If the install cannot detect the hard disk then the hard disk is faulty and needs replacing or the disk controller is faulty.
You can check if the hard disk is faulty by :-
Go into the BIOS and check if there a hard disk diagnostic.
If not then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of the drive then it is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the laptop.
To setup XP.
You insert the Windows CD and boot up the laptop with the CD.
You have done this correctly to get the hard disk error message.

SOURCE: XP on HP Pavilion dv2000

First of all, this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive and the drivers for the SATA Hard Drive will not be available with retail versions of Windows XP by default.
I recommend you to try using different OEM versions of XP to install in your Notebook which should work.
Since the Notebook is preinstalled with Windows Vista, the XP Drivers for this Notebook are not directly available from HP.
I had searched some for you which should work.
Download the Drivers one after the other and save them with the name along with the Softpaq Number like the example given below :
Microsoft UAA_33566.exe
So that it will be easier for you to save them and identify.
Save the drivers in one location in the Notebook and double click them once the download is completed.
Make sure that you install the Microsoft UAA Drivers before installing the Audio or Modem Drivers.
Make sure that you install them in the same order I had provided them below :
You need to download the Intel Chipset Drivers for your Notebook from the link below :
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe


Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture(UAA) drivers for High Definition audio :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33566.exe

Conexant High Definition(HD) audio :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34200.exe

As the Notebook is installed with Intel graphic Card, you need to download the Drivers for the same from the link below :
http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16944/a08/win2k_xp14363.exe


Download the Ricoh 5-in-one Card Reader Driver from the link below :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp37501-38000/sp37712.exe


Download Intel PRO/Wireless Drivers from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34489.exe

As I am not sure whether your Notebook is installed with Intel or Realtek Ethernet card, I am providing both the drivers:
Intel Ethernet Drivers :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33574.exe
Realtek Ethernet Drivers :
http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Realtek-RTLRTLRTLRTL-Driver--WHQL-Download-33009.html

You can also try downloading the Marvel Youcon Ethernet Drivers if any of the above provided drivers did not work :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software10/COL24713/gs-63707-1/Marvell_Yukon_LAN_Driver_6.36.0.0.exe


Downlaod Conexant HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem drivers from the below weblink :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33890.exe

Download the HP Quick Launch Buttons drives from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38501-39000/sp38688.exe

Download the HP Pavilion Webcam Driver from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33544.exe

Download the Alps Touchpad driver from the below weblink:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33751.exe

Finger Print Reader Driver :
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32501-33000/sp32869.exe

Hope these helps...

SOURCE: problem on loadind windows xp on hp pavilion dv2000 laptop

That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.

Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.

On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.


Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see:
Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .

How to downgrade vista to winxp pro at Hp pavilion DV4-1204TU ?


Well, this may make you think twice:

I bought a presario from circuit city last year, and I paid $200 to downgrade to XP. Everything was fine until it crashed last week. IT went completely bizzerk. HP won't provide support, cause I changed it. Circuit City is out of business, not much help there.

Basically, I am completely #$%%@@.

I am now paying to get Vista put back in. :-(
