Question about PC Laptops
Please help me, I bought a HP Pavillion dv2000 Laptop which came with a built-in Windows Vista. Thats cool, but the problem arises when I try to install windows XP. After inserting the Windows XP SP2 CD and after primary driver loading it is unable to detect my harddisk . Anyone please help me resolving this issue.
There is no option for disabling sata in bios.. the bios sucks big time

Ok for all u that are in desparate need of a real fix for this issue. The ones Iam talking to are the ones with the older bios that does not have a SATA off option......U dont need to turn SATA off all u need to do is slipstream the SATA controller into ur retail or factory installation disc. Very easy it takes about 1/2 hour out of ur day. I have included these 2 Utube video's to make ur day easier. Make sure u do exactly as this guys says when he says PUT A CHECK IN THE MASS STORAGE BOX. This is where your HP SATA drivers are. These videos should be in order to the steps u need to do. I have done this and it worked perfect for my DV2000 so Iam not posting something I havent tested myself.
