    I am havingn the same problem. I was able to boot off the drive to install XP Pro (Worked fine with XP Home). I checked for the Upper and lower Filters in the registry and there were no entries to delete (Confirmed I was in the right location). There are other registry keys with the Drive's model # listed so I know Windows knows it's there. I need help getting this drive visible!! 


    Thanks!!

I can't format my HP Compaq 6720s Notebook,win xp say can not hdd drive ,but i'll get new hdd


The reason XP cannot detect the hard drive is because thr hard drive in this model HP is a SATA hard drive and the Windows XP installation CD does not have the SATA controllers on this CD.
To install XP on a SATA hard drive, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Bought HP Pavilion dv2910tx,not able to install Windows XP. Help


If the install cannot detect the hard disk then the hard disk is faulty and needs replacing or the disk controller is faulty.
You can check if the hard disk is faulty by :-
Go into the BIOS and check if there a hard disk diagnostic.
If not then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port.
If this computer see it as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of the drive then it is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the laptop.
To setup XP.
You insert the Windows CD and boot up the laptop with the CD.
You have done this correctly to get the hard disk error message.

Boot sequence problem


try booting to DOS screen only by inserting a boot-able floppy disc (I use Win ME disc at this point although my system is also Win XP). Then select "boot with CD-ROM driver". It will detect your CDROM drive and assign a letter. Now insert the CD and boot from there. I have done this sequence many times with no problems.
