Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
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.
