Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
You need to follow these instructions:
0. Download the XP Sata driver from the support page and create the driver floppy, attached usb floppy drive to laptop: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=
1. Power up, hit F10 to enter setup
2. DISABLE SATA native mode
3. Follow the installation instructions in the supplied readme.
If you DO NOT disable native mode for the sata drive, you will end up going around in circles with the XP setup informing you there is no hdd in the laptop, even though you specifically installed sata drivers off the floppy.
Once you get past the "Hit enter to install Windows", you can trash all the partitions on the drive, and recreate one big partition for XP :)
***NOTE*** MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR DRIVERS FOR XP ON A CD AND READY TO INSTALL. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THEM AT THE HP WEBSITE.
