Hi angrybird :)

 

Were there any changes before reloading the XP operating system? Did you try checking the Boot priority menu or settings if the optical drive is first?

Hi

 

HP NX6320  is designed specifically for Vista.  If i remember correctly ,this model came without an option to change the SATA mode to IDE emulation. XP only supports IDE mode natively . AHCI mode require, SATA drivers to be loaded. First you should check if there is an option to change the SATA mode .

 

-  Turn on or restart the computer. Press F10 while the F10 = ROM-Based Setup message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen.

 

- Navigate to the System Configurattion-->Device Configuration and verify if there is an option to change the SATA mode. If yes, change it to IDE.

 

- Also verify the health of your HDD.  Navigate to the Diagnostics menu and run HDD self test.

 

 

If there is no option present to change the SATA  mode , we are required to create a XP CD with SATA AHCI driver integrated. Report back after checking the health status of your hard disk.
