First of all, this HP notebook is design best for Windows98 and Windows2000, so u must make sure which OS that u need to install into your system, u may also try WindowsXP if your system fulfill the requirement to support XP (refer to the XP requirement here). Cause now i don think u can get the Windows98 or Windows2000 genuine installer at any shop nowadays.

After u decide which OS u want then just put in the CD in your CD-ROM and follow the instruction on screen. Please backup all the data u need to a safe place before do this. Of course u also need to set your BIOS to boot CD 1st at computer start.

In almost all instances a new operating system will be installed from a CD or DVD.
1. Start your computer and enter BIOS to make sure CD/DVD is your first bootable device. 2. Have your CD/DVD in the CD/DVD drive and boot the computer 3. Boot the computer and generally you will be prompted to hit any key to boot from CD 4. A guided setup process will walk you through the installation of your given operating system

F11...system recovery in hp laptop


System recovery is for serious disk/operating system corruption problems. There is a system recovery partition on HP laptops that contains routines to restore your laptop to the configuration it came from the factory with. Backup all your personal files to a CD or USB stick or portable hard drive before using system recovery as it will erase anything you have added to your primary hard drive since it left the factory. That can especially be a problem if you have upgraded to a newer version of Windows than what your laptop came with, as HP is somewhat 'known' for not upgrading the recovery partition if you don't have recovery CD's for the new operating system bought from HP. If your recovery partition has been erased or corrupted, you will have to either use HP recovery CD's (which may be available from HP if your laptop is new enough)
or do a format and complete installation from the proper Windows installation CD. Either way, your personal files are toast if you don't back them up first. In some cases of operating system failure, you can get an external USB drive box, put your old HDD in it and use another computer to try and read files from the disk to try and save your personal files.

When I start the laptop (HP HDX 16) I get this messege: Boot device not found Error codes Hard Disk-(3F0) pleas install an operating system on your hard disk. F2 system diagnostic. but it does not install...


The Windows edition listed in BIOS (Vista) is referring to the operating system that came with the computer. BIOS's System Diagnostics will always say the OS is Vista, because that is the original OS that HP put on the system. BIOS itself, however, cannot detect an operating system on the new Hard Drive because there is no operating system. In order to get an operating system, you have a couple options:

Depending on the terms and length of your warranty, you may be able to get HP to reinstall the operating system back onto the new Hard Drive. The amount you would pay depends on the warranty. Many warranties, however, become void when you change physical components in the computer (especially with laptops). If this is the case, you will have to try the next option.
You can buy a retail copy of Windows either online or from an electronics store. The price will depend on what edition you purchase, but it will probably cost you at least $100 US.
You can install a Linux operating system on your Hard Drive. If you've never heard of Linux, it is an operating system based on much of the same code as Mac operating systems, but has a more "Windows-like" feel to it. Linux operating systems are NOT the same as windows, and some programs that work in Windows will not work in Linux; you would need to find the Linux counterpart for these programs. One of the best things about Linux operating systems are that they are absolutely free to download, install and use. A very popular and stable Linux operating system is Ubuntu, which can be found at: http://www.ubuntu.com/

Hp pavilion dv2000 needs to install new operating system


Each antivirus has some limitations regarding the OS you are using. The Kasperkey Antivirus version you are using may not be able to run on Windows Vista.

  • You can use any free anti virus available for your system (as AVG Free).
  • There are other paid version of anti virus softwares specifically for your OS Windows Vista.
  • Almost all antivirus have their Vista Version. Check their websites for details.

Windows not installing


Sir please specify the Operating system which you want to install.

You can perform the following troubleshooting steps.

1) Your computer comes with a preinstalled operating system. The model also have recovery partition ( mostly in your D: drive) for installing Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium. You can use this recovery partition to install the operating system...

2) If you have created Recovery disks from the recovery partition then you can install the operating system from those disks.

3) If you have deleted the recovery partition and your recovery disks are damaged, then if your Notebook is under warranty , you can get recovery disks from HP with out any cost( FREE).

For more information contact HP 24X7 chat support.

For drivers you can visit the following HP link and select the operating system and download the drivers...
