HP Pavilion Dv6000 OS/Software :: Installing Windows 7 On Partitioned Hard Drive
Mar 4, 2014
I have an HP Pavillion dv6000 notebook with a hard drive that is partitioned. One partition contains the recovery program, which will install Windows XP should I ever need it to do so. I have recently installed Windows 7 on the other partition, and believe it would make sense to install Windows 7 on the recovery partition, so that if it is ever needed, it would reinstall Windows 7 rather than Windows XP. How can I accomplish this?

I have been getting a random blue screen popping up every once and a while, that will "dump my physical memory" or something and then reboot itself after like 30 seconds. my hard drive was the reason for these constant errors. So I backed everything up, in preparation of a real crash. I am in the process of ordering a new hard drive from Newegg.com, and I would like to know if it is hard to replace a hard drive in a notebook, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. Also, I dont think I have the Operating system disc that came with my computer, so how do I order that from HP and how much is it?And last but not least, Is there a post or video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and the operating system?
I have a system hp pavilion dv4 2101tu. My 320 GB internal hard drive got corrupted and i just bought 500GB new wd black internal hard drive. the problem is that when i am going to install window , i am facing problem . Just tell me that is there any prerequisite for installing a new hard drive into laptop. How to update bios information where it's shows i.e. internal hard disk size is 320 GB.
My hard drive failed on my Inspiron 14z laptop. I ordered an exact replacement and installed it. The computer was purchased 2 1/2 years ago, and I downloaded the operating system on 4 DVDs per Dell instructions. After installing the new hard drive, I am downloading the 1st DVD. I come to a page that asks me to either click on "Restore my computer" or "Factory Recovery - Deletes data & resets all partitions". I click on Factory Recovery, hit next, and a new page comes up saying this application will recover your drive to the factory condition. "Do you confirm?" I click "yes", hit next, and I get yellow triangle with an explanation mark inside and it says "Your hard drive size is not supported for this process. Please use a hard drive at least GB in size.
I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 that came with the partitioned data recovery feature. I immediately created 2 recovery disks. Yesterday, I sectioned my active hard drive so that I could have, in effect, 2 hard drives. The newly partitionedsection of the hard drive is naturally blank and I would like to install my data recovery or disk recovery information on it.
I have Acer Aspire 5742G notebook and I'm having problems installing the Windows 7 OS on my new SSD hard drive (I bought the SSD because the original hard drive is failing and making blue screens all the time...)For the factory restore, I'm using restore discs. I burned the discs few years back when the laptop insisted me of doing it (by using eRecovery or something, 3 dvds total).
The computer tries to install the OS with the dvds (asks to insert a dvd and then press a key). The actual problem is that the installer is just going in loops, restarting and eventually freezing in the end.. Reboot -> Acer logo -> Windows is loading files... -> Starting windows -> Reboot -> etc.That kept going for more than a hour (on the first dvd!) and suddenly it just froze on the "starting windows" screen.. So I had to reboot and star over again.I can still use my old formatted HDD, should I make new set of recovery discs or use an USB drive?
I have a HP Envy 4 - 1046tx Ultrabook and the operating system is Windows 8.1 64-bit. While downgrading to Windows 7 64 bit I was unable to find the hard drives. In the installation screen it showed me "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation.".
I downloaded all the versions (from latest to the oldest) of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and tried installing them one by one but they didn't work and still the hard drives aren't visible. But if I use a Windows 8 installation disc and install the driver the hard drives are visible.
I need my computer to display the hard drives by default without requiring a SATA driver. How do I do that? My chipset manufacturer is Intel and the model is Ivy Bridge HM77.
I had to install a new hard drive and re-install windows 7 on my Pavilion dv6. I downloaded drivers for LAN card and can get on internet with wire connected. When I installed wireless drivers I get compatibility box that says drivers did not install properly. Net work controller shows no driver installed. I am running windows 7...
I have a Pavilion M6 1045DX laptop and the HD crashed. It was 750GB so off to eBay I went to buy another one. I decided to buy a NEW SEALED HD so I bought a blue label WD brand new. (March 2014) Just for grins I wiped and verified the drive and it passed. I temporarily installed a 40GB hard drive to build the machine while I was waiting for the new drive figuring I would just clone it when it arrived. When I went to clone the test drive to the new drive I received an error about block sizes. I use the Apricorn DriveWire and have seen this on a rare occasion. I thought maybe a different cloning software would work but to no avail. Same error.
Rather than fight with it I decide to put the new 750 drive in the laptop and build it all over again. This is when I received this error.“Windows setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware”So, I grabbed another blue label 160GB WD drive and it installed Win 7 fine on the laptop. I then took the 750GB drive and installed in on an old IBM T61 and it too installed fine. I also installed the new 750GB drive on a Dell inspirion N5040 laptop with complete success. Why the new 750GB WD drive gives me this error on "only" the HP Pavilion M6? This laptop doesn’t have RAID and was NOT Built for windows 8. It came with Windows 7. And yes I’ve reset the bios back to factor standards!
i just bought my hp hdx 16 yesterday the main reason i choosed hdx 16 over dv6 is the second hard drive option(as said in maintenance guide) now i opened the back and no place for my second hard drive if any1 knows where the connector
My Macbook is coming in tomorrow, but I've already got a new hard drive that I'm planning to install on it. How do I install the OS onto the new drive? Do I just assemble the new drive in and put the CD that comes with the Macbook in and it'll do everything for me?

I have to swap out the current hard drive on my old Power Mac G5 because it's become unreadable. I've decided on the hard drive to replace it, but I have no idea how to go about installing the operating system. Moreover, my Power Mac G5 came with 10.3.5 Tiger, so is it safe to upgrade to Leopard even if I have older components?
I just got a new 640GB hard drive, and plan to install OS X, Windows XP, and Ubuntu on it. I would like some guides and recommendations on which operating system to stalled first, and what other preparation/softwares I need to get before installing.
I have an older HP Pavilion DV6000 with 4GB RAM (upgraded from 2GB RAM). However, only 2.69GB are useable. It was suggested that I upgrade the BIOS and turn on memory "remapping". The OS is Win7 Home Premium 32 bit OS.
l'm having a problem finding the right BIOS to upgrade.
Currently the BIOS version is F.3D Processor is: AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-56 1.80Ghz Product ID: 00359-062-3478866-85570
I had to install a new hard drive onto Dell Inspiron 17R (5720, Mid 2012). Ordered new hard drive from Dell, and also Operating System reinstall DVD. Windows was loading, but computer shut down and did not restart. I pressed the power button to restart, but now get 'BOOT MGR is missing' error, and don't know what to do next. I chose 'Custom Installation' and selected the only hard drive that was visible when prompted. Computer will not restart with DVD or without DVD. What now? Windows 7-
I have a Dell Latitude E6330 laptop and I recently replaced my hard drive as my old one had died--this was confirmed by the IT department at my school. After replacing the hard drive on my laptop, I found that the Fn+F5 command to disable my touchpad/touch stick was unresponsive. Upon further inspection, the touchpad button on my system tray was gone, and all touchpad related functions of my laptop were gone. In place of my touchpad (and all windows, settings, options, etc. ... that concerned it) was this ps/2 compatible mouse, which I am not allowed to disable.
I am a gamer and a student, and having my touchpad/touch stick enabled hinders my ability to type or play games as easily as I am used to due to misclicks. I used to be able to set my laptop to disable my touchpad (and other related hardware) automatically when I plugged in a USB mouse, and I would like to return to this setting if possible. How to do this without disabling the touchpad in the BIOS (as I do need to use my touchpad during lectures) ...
My laptop shows me a blank screen after the windows bar loading screen. It did an automatic test on my hard drive to fix files, but when I restarted, it still would keep doing this test. I've tried to use a Windows Vista Upgrade/Recovery, but there is no backup and it keeps giving me an error on all types of restoration. I have just tried the Hard Disk Self Test and it says that there is an error #1 - 04 Fail. From what I've read in the forums, I will likely have to replace the hard drive, but how to recover the files from the old drive and what kind of drive I need to replace.
I have a HP 15 Notebook PC with no dvd drive recently I was sent the system recovery cds from HP. I dont have an external dvd drive. What i do have is a Toshiba Satelight laptop with Widows 7 and a good dvd drive. Also I have a 500 GB external hard drive. I was thinking maybe I could copy the disks onto the external harddrive with the Toshiba dvd drive. Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.
I have bought Dell Vostro 5460 come with Windows 8, when i bought. it don't have preinstall DVD but it have Windows 8 sticker on my laptop, and at first i not create a system image and system repair disk, and my friend installed windows 7 on my machine and format all hard disk. my question it is possible that i want to make laptop like first time that have Windows 8.
My friend has a 2006 hp pavilion running xp. I have a 2007 hp pavilion running vista(32 bit). They look completely identical. Her motherboard took a dump, but the hard drive is good, and she needs to get the data off of it. Can i take out my hard drive from my laptop and install hers to get the docs and data off of it? Is it the same connection? size?
I'm new to having Dell computers. Today I received a Dell Inspiron 15z 5233 laptop with windows 8 on it. It has a 32 GB SSD and 500 GB hard drive. I can not see the SSD drive in the windows file explorer, nor do I see it in the Disk Management utility from the Control Panel. However, I do see it in the Device Manager as an SSD and another Hard Drive in the Disk Drive section. The SSD driver is up to date. I have not installed any drivers on the computer except for the Serial ATA CY1HK_WN_22.214.171.1246_A03. That was only after I tried to install windows 7 and it said "No Drive Found" when I tried to select a drive to install on.
I googled what could be the problem and saw that it could be a driver issue with the SATA connection. So I got that driver (Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver) and the SK Hynix Solid State Drive Firmware update. These are the most current on Dells website. This is an older computer, says late 2012. It has an i5 Processor. The SSD is SSDPM830 mSATA in the device manager. Storage Controller: Intel Mobile Express Chipset RAID SATA controller. When I try to save a file, I do not see an SSD drive, there is only one drive, the C: drive which is the 500 GB disk drive. I hope I have supplied enough information to understand the problem.
So I put the drivers on a USB and tried to install windows 7 again, and it still shows No Drive Found, and when I tried to browse for the drivers, they do not appear on the USB. It will show all the folders on the USB, but I can not open the folder they are in. So I put them directly on the USB outside of any folders, and they still do not show up. Also, I changed it to Legacy mode, safe mode off for the boot settings.
I assumed I did not have to install any drivers on windows 8, because it detects everything automatically now days. Should I go ahead and install some drivers on windows 8?
I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
Unfortunately it appears my sister's TX1219 has a corrupted hard drive. A few days back the laptop was frozen and she powered it off via the power button. However when she booted it back up it gave her the issue that Windows was not shut down properly, etc. She chose to start up normally but it took forever to get to the desktop and pretty much froze at that point.
Again she powered it off via the power button but this time she received the message that there was a disk error and telling her to press CTRL ALT DEL to restart. I told her to go into safe mode on boot up and attempt to repair the hard disk via chkdsk. However the computer constantly hangs when it attempts to go into safe mode. I then checked the computer out myself and used a Vista Ultimate install disk to try to boot the computer off of that and run chkdsk to fix the corrupt sectors. However when booting the files the comp hangs and doesn't get much past 15% on loading the files. I know HP partitions the disk into the main C: drive and a recovery partition and I tried booting off of the recovery partition but that failed as well. As a method of last resort I tried to check the hard disk for any errors via the BIOS and it said the test failed.
My initial assessment of the situation is that either the hard drive has some certain sectors that are corrupted that could be repaired or perhaps that the hard drive has completely crashed..............
i am upgrading the RAM and was considering a new hard drive as well. however, i am confused on what should work especially because the laptop is getting old. i do not need a ton of GB, 60 would be fine. my goal was to get a faster one. could anyone post a link of some from tiger direct that might work? is 7200 my limit? would 10000 work?
i found this link but it is from 2007:
The ATA/100 EIDE is what you need to look at for a new HDD.
I had hp pavilion 2230 tx laptop which is out of warranty. My laptop doesn't starting .It goes on Automatic Repair and after a minute it starts "Diagonising your PC" which remain for hours and at last "Automatic repair failed" message appears, below it restore option is also available. I proceed to restore but it also fails.Then I shutdown the laptop and open it again and I pressed esc button quickly and then I tried to test the hard drive which doesn't go furthur testing and display "hard drive test fails". Whether my hard disk is crashed or not.
