Hello yussufawad,

Is there any BIOS settings for RAID? is so disable them - you can also find the disck controller and give the drivers at setup by pressing F6 at the start. of the graphical phase.

Hi

You need the chipset drivers for the installation of XP on your system.  They are all online.  As PeteLong suggested, you'll need to press F6 when installing XP.  You'll see the prompt at the bottom of the screen.

The problem is, with a regular XP install disk, it is expected to have the drivers on a floppy drive.  I'm bettin' you don't have one.  You may need a special install CD.  One can be ordered here:

All of the information for your PC can be found here:

Hope that helps you get started.

Because there are so many variants of the dv6000 it's essential you identify the precise model (if nothing else you'll need to be able to identify the mainboard so you can add the correct drivers).
There are a variety of approaches but most are outlined in this thread:
