Hello,

I have a laptop HP dv9607tx. Originally with Vista.
I asked a computershop to put Windows XP Pro on it and I did partition the HD. There is data on drive E,F and G.
Drive C contains Windows XP and D contains all installed programs.
Because the installed operatinfg system was infected deeply I formatted the C-drive and bought a Windows XP PRO CD.
I want to install windows with nLite and used the instructions for nForce RAID systems (SataRAID or PataRAID).
I unzipped the file nForce LEGACY 699 for XP 32bit build by Fernando.zip. And followed the instructions for integration to create a startup CD.
It did not work. After starting the laptop with the CD I got the message: NTLDR is missing Restart the computer.
I really need help to get my laptop working again.
Please help me to finish.

Best regards,
Jan Harms.

Install XP over Vista

Hello,
I hope this postis on the right place. I'm a newbi and posted the first one wrong.
I have a laptop HP dv9607tx. Originally with Vista. The first XP installation was done by a computershop.
Because the installed operating system was infected deeply I formatted the C-drive and bought a Windows XP PRO CD.
I want to install windows with nLite but every SATA driver I download from the Net does not work.
After starting the laptop with the nlIte created CD I got the message: NTLDR is missing Restart the computer.
I really need help to get my laptop working again.
Do anyone know how to make my laptop to recognize my SATA HD?

Best regards,
Kokernoot.

Will the laptop boot from the XP CD and run setup? For assistance with performing a specialized install using nLite or other tools, try Google. Otherwise, I/we are more than willing to assist in getting XP installed and working.

Re: Install XP over Vista

Thank you Dai for your reaction.
Typing the model number I made a mistake. I'm very sorry for that. The right model number is dv9706tx> i mixed numbers.
The bios can't be approached, so I can not change the sata to ide.
The HP side for this model gives me no information about the sata driver when I choose Windows XP as operating system.
I tried nLite with some drivers from the internet but the result was that windows not want to start.

Do you have ideas to look for a good driver?
That wouldhelp me out.

Best regards.

Re: Install XP over Vista

The main menu gives the system information.
-1)System date
-2)Identification information of the computer
-3)Diagnostic log
2) can not be approached.

In sytem information the bootoptions can be set in a choosen order.
I can not find any entry for changing the sata to ide setting.

Does that mean that it is not possible to install windows xp?

I hope you advise me.

Hello Dogg,
The laptop does start up from the XP CD.
The install work till I must choose between three options.:
To setup windows now press ENTER
To repair using recovery console press R
To quit setup press F3.

On ENTER the message is :
Setup did not find any harddisk. Than you get some advise like control the power,etc.
Setup cannot continue press F3.

According the setup there is no Harddisk. It can't be found.

Do you know where I can find a driver that works.
I did try many drivers I could find on internet and used them with nLite, but till now no result.
I hope you can advise me here.

Your last remark is OK. I see now they merge. I didn't know.

In the boot options I can change the delay for F10 and F12, dis-/enable CD-rom boot ,floppy boot and Internal network adapter boot
The boot order starts with CD/DVD rom. After that I set the notebook harddrive. Starting up with the XP CD with or without pressing F2 during installation ends with the same result that I can quit with F3.
The HD stays unknown. I think it is not possible to solve this problem by resetting something in the laptop.

Sata drives are different from IDE drives.

All discussions on the internet concerning this problem are about looking for a driver.
On the nLite site I followed the instructions from Fernando and only inserted the driver files.inf

What wonders me is that the CD created by nLite not works from the start. After starting up with it I get immediately the message:
NTLDR is missing Press Ctlr+Alt+Del.
When I start up with the windows XP CD the installation runs till I must press F3 to quit
I compaired both CD's and the only diffrerence is two extra files on the nLite CD: Last session.Is that the reason it will not run?
The rest of the files are exactly the same, not a bit bigger or smaller.

Thank you Dai for your suggestions. I followed the last advice and highlighted the drivers.
Because nothing happened I searched in google and downloaded sp38088.exe
In nLite I made the slipstream CD .
After putting in my laptop and starting I got the never stopping message :NTLDR missing,press any key to restart.

Yesterday I used partition magic. That program saw my usb harddisk but as well my internal harddisk. What has that program for information to reach my internal HD and there is no driver that can do the same for Windows XP?

Is there anyone reading this thread who knows what driver I can use?

I'm believing there is no software to solve this problem for this HP laptop.
If that might be true I never buy anyting from that brand anymore.
The contracts they have with microsoft are too tight that they cannot produce an escape software for users who choose to use another OS than Vista.

Or there is a vendor that have created a driver for multible use?
Who knows something about this?

I keep hoping for a solution.

Hi,
The DV9706tx model has a Intel PM965 Chipset.

Please read before attempting to install the following drivers:
I am unable to identify ALL your hardware as I have NO Everest Report.
This would have helped. The Everest report will tell me what hardware you have in detail. As I do not have this info, I can only make an educated guess as what you have installed (Hardware). You assume the risk of installing the following drivers. Once you get XP installed, run and attach an Everest Report to the thread ASAP.


To install XP on this computer you will need to Slipstream the Sata Driver to a "new" XP CD

Here is a guide to show you how to slipstream the Sata driver to the "new" XP CD:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...d-disk-drives-during-windows-xp-installation/

You will need:

XP SP2 (Legit)
Nlite
Blank CD-R
Sata Driver
A computer with internet access and CD Burner


Nlite:
http://www.nliteos.com/

Sata Driver:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=17883&lang=eng

Extract this driver to a folder
Slipstream the contents of this entire folder to your "new" XP CD

WARNING: DO NOT install SP3 until ALL of the drivers are installed and functioning correctly

Once the "new" XP CD is made you can install XP on to this laptop.
You will then need to install the drivers in this order:

Chipset: Intel PM965 Chipset
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18052&lang=eng

Video: I am not sure what Graphics card you have installed (nVidia or Intel)

Third one in the list WinXP and WinServer 2003 Driver 5.736 2009/9/22


WLAN: Not sure what WLAN card is install (Intel or Broadcom)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...n&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=3642406

Intel:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...n&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=3224058
You will need to install the following two drivers. They are required to install the additional drivers

Windows Installer 3.1 Redistributable (v2):
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FC-5F56-4A38-B838-DE776FD4138C&displaylang=en

Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3642406
This is the Vista driver, but it also contains the XP driver

Card Reader: Ricoh 5-1
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...n&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=3224058

AuthenTec Inc. AES2501 Fingerprint Driver:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3642406
This is the Vista Driver, but it also contains the XP driver

Most of the rest of your drivers can be found here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3642406
You will need the following:
HP Quick Launch Buttons
First in the list

Synaptics Touchpad
Third on the list

Without an Everest report I am not sure what other drivers you need.
Please run Everest under my signature and attach the full report to the tread.

Also post all errors left in the Device Manager

LightScribe Host Software if you have a lightscribe CD Burner

Once you have ALL the drivers installed go back to the Device Manager and post any errors.

Good Luck,
Bill:grin:

Sorry for my late response. I was not in the situation to reach internet for some days. I live in a small village with only mobiles and no internet connections.

Thank you for all the info Bill.
I'll start soon with the downloading and making slipstream CD.

All adresses you send to me are driver downloads? I was told I must sort out drivers from hotfixes&addons. One of the info sites told me that drivers are programs to run attached hardware to the PC with the extention .exe.
An addon is a program for enhancing a primary program or hardware. So how can I see the difference?

I like to know about the difference. I looks important.

To run a piece of hardware you need a driver.
The links posted above (for the most part) are drivers for your hardware with a Setup exe. file.
Just click on the link, download the driver and run the Setup exe to install the driver.
Please install the drivers in the order given.
If you into an issue, post the issue before installing the next driver.

Thanks,
Bill
