HP Pavilion 6000 No windows boot.

Hi, My HP pavilion 6000 starts ok and I can access the bios. It does not recognize the hard drive though. I can boot with Linux Mepis and it works with the cd. However I cannot install onto hard drive. I have tried Vista as well and it starts copying files and then it halts. It seems that it cannot recognize hard drives. I tried another hard drive from my son's laptop and still the same problem. Any idea what could be wrong? Thank you.

  1. Something major could be wrong with the motherboard. Go to HP's site and search for DV6000 overheating. After a bit of running around, you should get to a page into which you can input your serial number and see if you qualify for a replacement motherboard because of their known overheating problem.
  2. Thank you Veteran. I will go to their site.
