I have a HP ze4100 laptop computer. It had Windows XP operating system. One
day I turned on the computer and got the message: no operating system found.
I have tried to load the system recovery disks (a total of 7) but get the
error: error encountered while creating Save to Disk partition.
I do not need to save any files or data: I just need to be able to
re-install Windows XP.

Thanks, Jamedare

I'd expect that these would indicate that the system has lost the drive -
check that it is detected in the BIOS. It may have simply failed or just
need to be removed and reseated. If it's failed, a replacement drive should
be properly detected. See if you can borrow another one known to work; if
that does not work, other hardware is indicated, which will mean
professional servicing.
