    is it deffo raid?

    I've had a load of hp laptops that you have to change the sata mode in the bios so you can install XP - might be the same?

    Does anyone have experience of dual boot, if I can get that to work for Win 7 and XP, it would be a temp work around.

    I don't think that will even work, because of the RAID drivers. I put in an XP disc, and when it gets to the setup it blue screens...

    Hi

    You mention RaiD drivers, the service book for your model mentions only SATA.

    Was windows 7 originally shipped with the laptop?

    Thanks

    By RAID drivers, don't you mean AHCI? You wouldn't be able to create much of a RAID array with only one drive.

    Also, why not just leave Windows 7 on it?

    Also are you sure there is no problems with the RAM? As I think the installer's boot to a RAM drive while loading all the files etc to the hard disk.

    Maybe Memtest is needed

    Is it an XP SP3 disc?

    I doubt it's a RAID Driver - much more likely to be SATA compatibility. Look in the BIOS for anything labelled "SATA mode", "IDE Compatibiltiy", "Disk Controller mode" - basically you want to change it from native (SATA...) to compatible (emulating IDE...).

    You will need to integrate the SATA drivers into your XP CD so that Windows "sees" your hard drive. There's a really good guide on how to do this (without resorting to using nLite) here...

    My mistake it is SATA drivers. It came with win7 but we ideally need XP on them for security reasons, we as a school aren't reading for Win7 yet!

    @pantscat Usually there is something in the bios but nothing whatsoever. I've never had an issue before because you can change the drive to IDE or auto-detect. The bios is InsydeH20 Rev3.5

    @Arthur Thanks I'll give that a go.

    Didn't work Arthur! Grrrr. I've got 20 of these to sort!

    I have an external floppy drive but am struggling to find the sata drivers (if that's what it is!).

    Hi

    I'm not a HP specialist, but I do deal with them. If you have the Service Tag and Seriel Number of your laptop, you can go to the HP website and have a LIVE chat with a support representative (for free) who confirm and put you in the right direction for the drivers.

    Let me know if you have issues and I'll try.

    Thanks
    Sukh
