Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Posted by Anonymous on
Ok ,its old laptop, DV6 is now retired at HP. officially.
f11 is the HP restore partition
if someone used non HP DISKS to upgrade this kills dead this feature
you never said, what OS is there now?
nor what it was new. (some version had 3 OS choices new)
only asking HP what yours had new, can answer this .
HP will look up the model and serial and tell you.
reading reviews is see it was XP or Vista then,
is it that now? or what? (control panel hit system read the top words)_

Why all these clueless suggestions? I came here looking for help, but it appears I'll be solving my own problem and lend a hand. First attach something bootable via USB like you already know. Change boot order and boot from some kind of XP install disk. That's where I'm at right now. I'm now in the recovery console which gives me a command line. I had JUST READ somewhere the comand line commands to restore the boot manager that we just compressed.
Hold on....OK ! Problem fixed.
Step by step:
1)Get external CD reader and plug into USB
2)Boot Mini hit F10 or F12, whatever it says to change boot order
3)Reboot and you'll see you now have option to change boot order on bootup.
4)Boot to some kind of XP start disk(stupid me never even looked at HP's recovery disk yet - I didn't want to go there!)
5)Let the startup program run til it stops asking you to select an option, and hit R for recovery console
6)You'll want option 1 for c:/windows and type your password when asked
6)type fixboot then enter
7)It will happily inform you that your boot record is repaired
There may be some warnings or statements in between. You're desperate - agree to whatever they say! ;-)
9)Don't worry, be happy
If you can't stand that you now have that message booting up every time and it looks weird, RIGHT click my computer, properties, advanced, startup and recovery settings, and edit ....change default operating system from ** to Microsoft Windows XPHome etc."
click edit and for good measure delete where it has WINDOWS="" as an operating system. Don't mess with this if you're not sure.
10)Now be happy!

I download all the drivers from the HP web site. Took a brand new 160GB hard drive and installed Windows XP Pro. I then proceeded to install all the available drivers and softward from the HP web site. The Altiris Recovery Software allow for the creation of a recovery partition.
If you never had a recovery partion on your laptop, pushing buttons won't do anything for you. The F11 key is used for Altiris Recover Partion. I've done this to my TWO nc8000 and would consider buying a 3rd nc8000.

SOURCE: My hp mini 1000 wont
was there a new hardware that was added to your laptop? bluescreens often are caused by hardware.
while the laptop is booting up when you are asked for options on how to start you computer is there an option for start windows using last known configuration? if there is try that and if it still goes into bluescreen you may want to try and recover your laptop using the hp recovery cd or recovery tool. if it still doesn't work most likely you have a bad memory chip.
hope this helps
contact me for any updates

Tips for a great answer:
Restart the computer. Repeatedly press the F8 key until the Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys
then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional" depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator"
Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK
Select the "Administrator" user.
Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes.
Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place. I do not recommend that a password hint be used.
Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.
hope this helps
