Installing XP on a Compaq nc6220


Sonnich Jensen


I got a HP/Compaq nc6220 second hand, with the old HD deleted - almost
- it boots but fails. Anyway I wanted to install XP on it, and took my
previous XP CD,from which it loads (but does not offer to format the
HD). At some point it crashes.

The nc6220 has a sata HD, I think that is the problem.

I also tried some old Win95 and 98 disks - similar result.

Any ideas what I can do?

When booting from a dos disk, there is no HD to be seen.... sata?
