New HD for HP pavilion dv6000 "no hard disk"
Posted on 2008-11-18
I found out my HD was bad on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. I couldn't even see Hard Drive in BIOS. So HP sent me a new Hard Drive. I installed it, and it says "operating system not found" when I turn laptop on (Which I understand because it is a blank HD). I am able to see it in the BIOS this time at least. I am trying to install XP Professional (no service pack), It starts booting off CD, but then says "Can't continue, no HD detected"
This is a pretty new laptop that came originally installed with Vista Ultimate. Is the reason I am having trouble because I am trying to install windows XP Pro?
What so I do?
