its very simple....

Hi,

Since, for your laptop you are downgrading the operating system from Vista to XP then with HP notebook.

You need to disable Native SATA support in BIOS utility and go ahead with the installation. To disable the SATA support you need to follow the below steps:

== Disable SATA native support:

1. Turn on or restart the notebook.
2. Press the F10 key when the "HP Invent / Compaq" logo appears on the screen. This will open the BIOS menu.
3. Select the "System Configuration" tab.
4. Select "Disabled" for the "SATA Native Support" item.
5. Press F10 to Save and Exit. Choose Yes for "Save configuration changes and exit now".

For more information on this visit the below link from HP.

When i try to install windows xp sp2 it says "no hard disk detected" i also doesn't know how to use nlite.could u pls help me with a complete step by step method starting from nlite to completion of driver...


First of all, as this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive, any retail version of windows XP will not be able to detect the Hard Drive because of which you are getting this kind of errors when trying to install XP.

However, to proceed with installing XP in your Notebook, I recommend you to disable the SATA Native Support option which will be present with Notebooks installed with Intel Processor and not with AMD Processor.

You can disable the SATA Native Support feature from the BIOS by following the instructions below :

Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to the BIOS setup window.

In this, go to the System Configuration tab where you will find the SATA Native Support.

Press Enter to select it when the option is hilighted and set the option to Disabled.

Now, press F10 key to Save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.

By doing this, the Hard Drive in the Notebook will be detected as IDE Hard Drive and you should be able to install XP without any issues.

Please not down that the SATA Native Support option should be set to Disabled even after installing the Operating System in the Notebook.

However, I need to have the Product Number of the Notebook wich can be found printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook indicated wit P/N using which I can find the Hadware specifications of the Notebook and provide the appropriate drivers.

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive


I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...

Can't reinstall xp pro on my hp compaq nc6320


Stephane, I ran into the same problem after wiping out my Compaq nc6320 and trying to install XP Pro. The fix is to disable SATA Native mode. To do this: Enter F10 Setup then System Configuration>Device Configurations>SATA Native Mode and disable it, save the changes and now you should be able to install XP Pro. Remember, when I did this the drive was blank, I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Best of luck! Bryan P.S. If you want to enable SATA native mode after you have installed XP Pro check out this link: http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1042050&admit=-682735245+1161793137260+28353475
