Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
You need to get into the bios. On most systems, you can get into the bios by hitting the F2 key as it starts up. Some use F12, it will flash on the screen.
Once in the BIOS, you need to see how the SATA drives are setup. Sometimes they allow you to change the SATA detection setting by setting it on NORMAL or COMPATIBLE. Changing the setting will allow your current OS to see it.
If you are still having problems, let me know what you have listed in the BIOS.

Your harddrive is probably S-ATA and xp doesnt have a build in driver for it. You need to download a S-ata driver from hps website, I'm not sure if xp can read the driver from anywhere else but a floppy. So i that case your going to need to buy a USB floppy drive.
Theres a tutorial on how to make the floppy.
If the floppy doesnt work, you might need to copy all the xp files into the hard drive and add the Sata driver into the xp installer, that can be hard todo maybe il give you instructions on that later.
