Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook
I have a HP Compaq nc6000 laptop with a bad harddrive(it failed the check disk utility in bios) when I replaced the harddrive I receive an error 'no system disc detected'. Is this because of the Drivelock on the PC? Do I need to unlock the old HDD before I install the new, or is it just a matter of modifying the bios?
Go into bios on power up . set boot options boot from cd first.save settings.restart,make sure have operating disk in drive .when instructed press any key(to start from cd) pc will check and find that there is no partion or system.create partition,format partition and install new system(windows)

Set the jumper on the HD as it was on the old one
can you see the HD when the system boots up
are you using window vista?
if there is a driverlock on your pc yes you need to unlock it.but this should not be a problem.
what size hard driver was there and what size hd are you trying to use.
check your bios setting. this can help

If you have replaced the HD - this drive will be completely blank.
Your computer needs an operating system installed.
If you got a system restore CD/DVD with your computer - this is a good time to insert it and follow the onscreen instructions.
Alternatively if you have a windows install disk then this is a good time to install it.
Its also likely that everything on the old hard disk has been lost.
However - At a later date you could try and add it as a Slave disk to see if you can recover your documents etc once you have your machine up and running on the new disk.
