We can not guess how you did this.
Microsoft CD/dVd install media, ?
HP CD install media from HP
home made media,???? dont
or F11 key restore.
so how can we guess that, ?and MATTERS BIG TIME.



didn't find ,past tense.
first off , not all PCs are the same.
did you go TO BIOS and run the HDD test first? page 73 below.
after the HDD can BAD , so we do that first.
if that fails it is bad, for sure.!!! buy a new SSD and install that?

then boot and (power button) and press F11 as the service guide tell you, see link at end.
F11 reloads the OS. page 92

F11 is only works if:
1: HDD GOOD
2: Someone did not install Microsoft OS and kill the HP restore partitions.
3: XP virus didnt wreck that partition or someone did foolishly.

if F11 is dead, then only HP install disk work. real.
that means all HP software like new still all works like day 1.
if all you need is email, then other solutions are available.
first google hit btw... in 1 second flat.....

My windows xp startup disk with the os an drivers is no good microsoft says i need contack manufactures copy do have one


You should not have contact the manufacturer (microsoft)
one of these will help you

SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP. While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so. However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

From what you are saying i would try installing on different hard drive, as it sounds like file corruption is playing a big part of your problems. If it isnt the hard drive then it may be one of your ram chips

Installing XP SP3 pro on my presario C700


Most likely you have a SATA drive which windows is not detecting. Restart the setup and press F6. You will need to use another system to download the SATA drivers and save to a disk. Then when prompted you can insert the disk. You can also upgrade to XP professional which will almost always recognize the SATA drives. Good Luck.

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
