Hmm did you plug in the cables to the HD right or set it to Slave instead of Master drive ( it's on the back of the HD next to where you plug in all the cables, has a little switch and says "Master" or "Slave" switch to Master )?

Can't install xp


Are you receiving any error messages when you try to install Windows XP?
If it is not detecting your Hard Disk follow the steps below:
Go into the BIOS setup (press f10 during boot process), System configuration and disable SATA Native Support. Try installing XP again and it should see your hard drive.

My COMPAQ Presario Model 5000US continues to run slow


Kitty:
Judging by the mod. # of this unit, I'd say it was high time to either replace entire machine, or at the very least - put the restore/recovery disc that came with the machine and reload it.
Good luck,

The COMPAQ splash screen displays, with F1-Setup and F10 system recovery option, but then displays 'DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER'. This is my sisters computer, and she says there...


You may be able to purchase a system disk from Compaq, otherwise, try any generic XP disk. It won't have any Compaq drivers, but at least you can reformat the C: drive and get XP on it.

Downgrading from vista to xp sp2


I know this problem, The HDD is a SATA disk, win XP setup cannot identify a SATA controller on it's own you need to load the driver (from a disk) so you may need to download it first. I think this is the correct link http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-51521-1&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3369431&os=228&lang=en extract the files and burn to a CD or Floppy then run win XP setup by booting from CD you should see in the begining of win XP setup from CD it prompt you to press (I think) F2 to add RAID or SCSI Controllers, (this prompt is at the bottom of the screen) Then follow the propmts to load from the disk you made earlier. you should be able to select the controller from a list. (short list) you should then be able to continue and hopefully Win XP setup should now be able to see your HDD and give you choices about which partition (as per normal) you want to remove all partitions before installing winXP (you can then make whatever partitions you wish) Hope this helps
