FlashBoot is the easiest product available to build an external boot disk. They provide a free demo version that can test before you pay for the program. FlashBoot can load many different operating systems but the program can also use FreeDOS, which has no additional licensing fees. If you have limited computer experience, this is the way to go.

check that your BIOS is set to boot from that drive in the BOOT options portion of the BIOS screen, F2, F12 or DEL when the computer is first switched on should get into the BIOS.

HP Pavilion zv6100 laptop CMOS will not recognize the HD


You could have a faulty disk controller. Try inserting a different working hard disk into the HP and see if it can detect it in the BIOS. If not then the disk controller is faulty and this is a motherboard problem. A replacement motherboard may not be worth it, put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive.

Hp pavilion a1220n shuts dwn after loading hp8500 pr drv xpsp3 os


If you can boot into safe mode, then once in safe mode open system restore and then restore to a couple days prior to the install of the hp drivers. This should fix the problem. If you need to know how to get into system restore let me know your operating system (Vista or XP)

I want to downgrade my hppavilion dv2700 to win xp but it does not recorgnise my hard drive. can someone help me with a link or a software that can install sata drivers for all laptops, because i hear that...


Yes there is. You need to aquire a windows xp install disc, and boot from it and then install it.
To boot from it you need to go into the boot menu on startup, press F2 when next boot up and hold it until boot options appear. (may be F8 or even F12 depending on settings).
