Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
Trying to install window xp on compaq i am getting non system disk error or bios
Seems like the laptop is not starting from the cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter bios thats one way to solve the problem but look for Boot menu, it will very likely be button F12 or similiar, it should say on the screen when you power on.
if it doesnt, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.
after that you should be able to start from the cd and install xp.
here how to work the bios.
