Did you bother to check if the new motherboard was compatabe with your hard drive? Because sometimes, the slots and stuff are, but the motherboard functions differently if the hard drive is not compatable by model. Check again, and maybe, the hdd wasn't put it wright or something.

Anyways, hope this helps.

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

Im using hp dv6700t laptop,i want to install xp on my laptop


Your laptop has a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't recognize those drives cause the operating system came out before those drive were made.

Follow these steps I found thru google to get windows xp sp3 to recognize your drive:

You'll have to use a program to do this but people explain how to do it on that page plus the program is free.

My HP Pavillion DV9000 Laptop wont detect the hard drive


When I tried first installing windows XP on my laptop, I had the problem that I already had Windows Vista on it, but wanted to delete it and install Windows XP. Whenever I tried installing XP, it kept telling me that there was no hard drive. I searched through all the forums on this topic and finally found out that I had to change a setting in the BIOS called native SATA driver support.

My assumption is that once they changed the mainboard on your PC, the bios settings changed as well. Try searching through your BIOS, it might have a similar setting that you might need to change.

How to install xp in hp dv 2918tx laptop


This is a Vista laptop with a SATA hard drive. Windows XP does not have the SATA drivers, you therefore must slipstream the drivers to a new installation disk

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.
