Question about HP Compaq Presario v3000z Notebook
When i try to install xp so it's can't find my harddisk. arror is could not find any hardisk in your system. pls solw this problem what i do.
Actually, if I'm reading between the lines, it sounds like we are upgrading from windows vista to windows xp and, when installing and booting from the xp cd, the hard drive can't be found. That can be easily remedied by turning off the ahci mode in the computer's bios. Change it to the other option that's there, save and exit, then reboot. Your windows xp cd will become available.

First of all, was there a reason that you wanted to reinstall windows? If you were having problems with the operating system and now upon reload the hard disk is not appearing it could mean that the disk or the system board itself is bad.
If you pull the XP disk out and just try to boot your computer up are you able to login and use your computer from the previous/original install of XP?
If so, then perhaps you're using a special hard drive controller that supports RAID. If you have a RAID controller you'll need to load the drivers of that controller on a Floppy disk. During the initial startup of the XP install it will give you the opportunity to click the F6 button on the keyboard to load additional device drivers. You want to click F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to prompt you to put your floppy disk (with the RAID controller drivers) in the floppy drive.
Hope this helps. If you need more help just let me know.
