Hi,

I reinstalled Win XP64bit on my HP dv6000, I got the same error message, but, I accessed to BIOS, disable the Functionnality "SATA" (I don't remember now for the exact function), just disable it, save an reboot, then you can reinstall WIN xp 64bit without any prblm.

Let me know if you need any help.
Regards

Thank you, Any 6

Its in BIOS under Stoarage Configuration or something similar. The current setting will be either SATA or AHCPI? you need to change it to "IDE" then F10 to save changes.

Reboot with XP cd in and it will find the drive.

Sorry cannot be exact I don't have an HP with me right now

Enter your bios and tap over to "System Configuration".. Then tab down to the "SATA" option and hit F5 to disable it.. Then hit F10 to save..

Actually I'm having the same problem with with that same model that had windows media center 2005. I tried but can't seem to find and disable the BIOS to IDE. When I try to install it, it picks up the windows xp cd, but around halfway through the installation it shuts down. Please help.

Um, no actually I don't get an error message before it shuts down such as a blue screen. I have no idea as to why it's doing that.
First time, it went through, service pack 3, without a problem until it restarted up to the point where it continues the installation. But then it just shuts down. I took out the battery thinking it was defective that way it just runs on dc, however idk whether the power supply affects it in any way. The laptop originally had windows media center 2005 xp, and I'm trying to install xp on it, not xp64.

hey, here's the answer!

I guess we are talking about a InsydeH20 Bios version or similar to that.
This model of HP Computers do NOT have a Bios version that is of any sense at all!!! this way they can make it harder to find a way to install any other system except for vista and get a better contract with microsoft.

allmost all bios settings are locked, and you are not even able to have a look at the status of these settings. so basicly you cant change the harddisk settings without hacking or flashing the bios. but there is a way to get around this problem.
all you need to do is to use a program like nlite to create a windows xp setup cd including the necesary drivers. you will have to download drivers for your intel chip set (and i suggest for some other hardware on your system too) and follow the instructions to slipstream drivers into the xp setup cd. you can find those instructions anywhere on the net.
xp setup will then automatically install the drivers needed to run your harddrive.
