    Tape drive recognised by XP but removable storage manager (MMC) always reports the tapes as read only and will not permit any other operation except eject.

    THe HP test software reports the drive is functioning correctly.

    Tried setting dip switch 3 to off to diable MRS all others set to on but no difference.

Winxp install issue on hp 8430p laptop. When I boot from WinXp SP3 CD the Windows setup program doesn't seem to start, I just see a blank screen, I even tried to slipstream the drivers from HP but sill...

The Bios isn't recognising the CD (or the CD drive) as having a boot device.
This means that your CD drive may be duff (can you borrow/buy an external CD drive?) or that the CD disk is broken or hooky.
That means that you either need to see if the machine has an onboard restore partition (look for the "Press F11 To Restore" at startup) or borrow a friends WinXP install disk. if you have an IT dept at work, they can possibly lend you one.
Make sure you enter the serial code that came with your XP disk.

HP 520 Notebook. Shuts down before installing new OS.

I agree a clean install is always the better, fresh start J
OK it sounds like missing drivers, what you have to do is create a new installation CD that will load the drivers for your laptop as it boots. I haven’t try this method with windows 7, but I know it works well with Windows XP. Try and create a new Windows XP CD with the drivers see:
The start a new installation with this Windows XP CD and reformat you computer, after that you can do a new upgrade to windows 7

Need WinXP driver


Windows XP has the necessary drivers for a USB floppy drive. Try loading a diskette in the drive.

Hope it helps.
