Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
you have already used the HP Operating CD to set up your hard drive (and formatted your hard drive, and installed XP, and installed the drivers, and really don't want to do that again), you can still âfixâ the partitions - as long as you have the space for Quickplay outside the XP partition.
1. Boot from you HP operating system disk.
2. Press ENTER to set up Windows XP
3. Press F8 to accept License Agreement
4. With your XP partition highlighted (itâs usually C:) press Esc.
5. Make sure you have at least 250MB of unpartitioned space after your XP partition. (If you donât, you probably have to delete XP and start all over.) I had to delete the 204 MB partition I created in the first place.
6. Once you have your XP partition and at least 250 MB of unpartitioned space, press F3 to quit. (Donât mess with the XP partition!)
7. Press F3 again.
8. Remove your HP operating system disk.
9. If youâre really fast, you can stick your Quickplay disk in before it reboots. Otherwise, let XP load, put in your Quickplay disk, and restart.
10. Quickplay should load successfully.
11. Note that when this is done, Quickplay will actually only use 204 MB of the space after your XP partition. It just needs more than that to actually run I guess.
