The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.

I feel you might have got bootable CD s and drivers,, put your OS windows bootable CD and start installing,, which will give you options to install fresh copy of OS with installing and formating..before it.

I can't reformat my hp compaq nc6000 i can't see any driver how can i reformat?


If you reformat it ALL will be lost on the hard drive if that is what you reformat. Then you will have to do a cold start using the Windows installation disks from scratch. This is a LAST ditch thing to do.

To reformat the hard drive completely you will have to use the utilities on your Windows installation disks which you may or may not have. Make sure you have your serial number and the necessary stuff to re-activate Windows and ALL other software disks for all the programs you have been using. Also any data you have such as photos, etc must all be saved on other medi that you can reload after reformatting and reinstalling Windows...

I think it is UNLIKELY you REALLY want to reformat the hard drive in your machine... It may take you days of work and frustration to complelwtely restore the machine after a reeformat of the hard drive.

How can i reformat my Blue IL1 notebook?? i think it has a virus... it doesn't continue loading, it restart when it reaches the windows xp logo... thanks for the help


Hello, you relly need to reformat it you can use an os installer suach as linux or windows using a usb flash drive, but you have to transfer the installer cd to the usb drive by using the wintoflash application. Once you've done that now you can reformat and install os in your notebook using your usb flash drive.

Hp nc6000 wont bootup


hi thanks for using fixya!

On this kind of error, the only option you could do is to format your system, but if you are not so familiar in formatting your laptop, I suggest that you bring laptop to service tech, to easily perform error checking and reformatting. This error might be virus or software problems.

Thanks! hope this will enlighten you. please rate me! good luck!

Cannot reinstall Windows on my Hp Compaq nc6000


I know I just had the same problem today...when getting into the bios...try using a "multi-bay" boot and have the cd booted first then the hd...That's the only way mine worked to "trick" the system to boot from the cd...it took a few times of stalling after that but with frustration and regathering with patience, it finally worked...you might have problems with the devices not being recognized after it does load unless you have an easy driver set to install from cd...otherwise you might have to manually install them to make them operate correctly. *hint: using the device manager to see any '?s' and reinstall drivers helped me*
