To fix this issue, you need to install the SATA drivers in the
notebook.

Here is the web link to download the SATA driver for your notebook:

ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/SP32478.exe

How to use this SoftPaq:

1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.

2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

To use the diskette during a new operating system installation,
complete
the following steps:

NOTE: A diskette drive is required to use this driver. If an external

diskette drive is used, ensure it is plugged into the system.

1. Insert the Operating System CD and Power On the notebook to boot
from
the CD.

2. At the very beginning of the operating system installation, the
following prompt is displayed at the bottom of the screen: "Press F6 if

you need to install a SCSI or RAID driver...." When the prompt is
displayed, press F6.

3. Later in the operating system installation, you are notified that a
mass storage device could not be detected. When this notification
occurs,
press S (S=Specify Additional Device).

4. When prompted, insert the diskette that was created from the SoftPaq

file, and then press Enter.

5. Select "Intel 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH7M)" and
press
Enter.

NOTE: At this point, the following prompt MAY be displayed,
depending
on the version of your operating system CD. If the prompt is displayed,

press Enter to use the default Windows driver and continue, if it is
not
displayed, simply continue with Step 6. The prompt reads as follows:

Windows already has a driver that you can use for "Intel (R) 82801GBM
SATA
AHCI controller (Mobile ICH7M)".

Unless the device manufacturer prefers that you use the driver on the
floppy disk, you should use the driver in Windows.

S=use the driver on floppy ENTER=use the default Windows driver


6. Continue with the operating system installation, as prompted.

That is all...
