30-11-2011, 10:12 PM
Hi there all.

Got a mates Hp Pavilion dm1-4015tu netbook that they want dual boot on. I have a windows 7 ultimate and windows XP Pro SP3 dsc.

1st off I have burnt the hp restore cds off for the machine so they can take it back to stock if need be.

Went to install XP but its not showing up the harddrive or any partions. Had a look in BIOS and there is no option for hdd to change IDE / AHCI like on some machines.

The HP site has some XP drivers on it. What im after is help finding the right driver for the hdd to unlock it.

I no how to use nlite and have a usb dvd drive for netbook.

Any help would be mint.

This is the pc

Theres not a lot of drivers for XP, according to this (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=nz&dlc=en&lc=en&os=228&product=5194543&sw_lang=&)

There maybe a native sata option in the BIOS

When attempting to install XP on a computer that was designed with Vista or Windows 7, the installation disc may not recognize the hard drive. The installation reports an ATA error that it cannot find a hard drive on the computer. Newer operating systems use Serial ATA (SATA) to control the hard drive, while XP and older operating systems use ATI-native technology. The BIOS, which controls all of the hardware components, is using native-SATA drivers but the XP installation disc cannot recognize this newer technology.

To resolve this, and disable the native SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps.

Open the CD/DVD optical drive to remove the XP installation disc, and turn off the computer. Press the power button and press f10 to open the BIOS Setup. Use the keyboard to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting.

If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer. If there is no SATA setting, you will have to find a third-party tool to change the settings.

After changing the SATA setting, insert the XP Installation disc, restart the computer, and then follow the Microsoft installation instructions.

If the BIOS does not have a setting to disable the native-SATA settings, you may have to use a procedure called slipstreaming to install XP. This procedure involves using third-party tools that are not supported by HP and may cause unexpected problems. You should search the web for instructions and tools before attempting to change the Vista or Windows 7 operating system.

Only thing is, if you disable native sata, it'll also disable it for Win7

Ok I just did a restart and F10 into bios and there is no native SATA options. to be honest there is just about nothing in there.

Adjust time and date, boot order test hdd and menory, set passwords, error logs, and couple of other things to do with fast boot and delay times.

looks like its slipstream way. I have seen some vid's and sites on Nlite and have used it couple of times now.

I have got a copy of the windows xp cd in a folder on desktop and got Nlite installed. Just need help finding right files to slip in.

Thanks for reply.

To make things easier, you can get this and slipstream it in Nlite. (http://voidseesaw.com/onepiece/OnePiece_Windows_XP_Post-SP3_UpdatePack_v5.1.0_ENU_CA66E38DC9B6CDECFB2D4C84 01128769.7z) Its got everything (inc net framework files), in it (except a service pack, and Oct 2011 updates).

Thats the direct link, its 212mb. You can also add this (http://voidseesaw.com/onepiece/Repair_OnePiece_Windows_XP_Post-SP3_UpdatePack_5.1.0_AddOn.cab) <- direct link - 1.21k

The 212mb file also installs WGA, bitlocker, browserchoice, windows search, and powershell, which can be removed with this (http://voidseesaw.com/onepiece/)

You have to right mouse on OnePiece_Remove_AddOn_For_WinXP_UP_124CC161821584E B0E55F73DBDD8A0BC and select save link as (depending on the browser you use). And you'll need this to remove the files you dont want (http://integrator.siginetsoftware.com/index.php?download). After you slipstream the service pack / remove what you dont want in nlite (services etc). And slipstream the 212mb file in either Nlite or RVM integrator

Or you could go to the main site above (wait until the Nov updates come out - wait a few days for this guy to update the main update file), then download it

The only thing is, you still need drivers for XP. Since the HP site doesnt have any. And XP doesnt have any. And the site above doesnt slipstream any either. If this thing has some version of windows on it now, I would look in device manager, and check the NIC / what brand it is. And the reader etc. Or whatever else it has in it

30-11-2011, 11:46 PM
Ok got the 212mb file downloading but the 1.21K file link goes to a page with this on it.

You have to right mouse on the smaller file and select save file as

You have to right mouse on the smaller file and select save file as

Right click and Save target as and it saves it as a HTML file. and under the save as type its got HTML or All files.

On a windows 7 pc at moment.

edit. Just want save target as and typed .cab on the name and save type as to all files and its not a HTML file now its a Cabinet file. Is the right?

Get this one then (http://voidseesaw.com/onepiece/OnePiece_Remove_AddOn_For_WinXP_UP_4BECBC567126B8A B06907C8A1245BAE3.7z). Its an 7z file. Yup its a cab file. If winzip or similar is installed, it will open it

Another thing is, when using something like Nlite you should really use the same version of windows (if youre slipstreaming XP files, you should use XP, not Vista or Win7). And also, if you use 64 bit Win7 (or any 64 bit version of windows), you shouldnt try and slipstream any version of 32 bit windows. It can fail (even tho Nlite may slipstream whatever files you've added to it)

Ok that one work fine. and i have winrar. Explore 9

Also I have teamviewer installed. mite need a hand if its ok.

I can show you what to do in Nlite now if you want.. Just copy an XP cd to a folder, and install Nlite... And have the files you downloaded handy.. Send the ID and pw for TV to me in a PM. It'll help if you have a service pack too

01-12-2011, 01:55 AM
Thanks will let you know how it goes. :)

Just had a look in CPUID hardware monitor.

HP 17CF temp = 62c, 60c min, 63c max

Intel core i3 = 61c, 60c min 64 max
core 1 is 2c higher then core 2

Power = 4.56w min 7.06w max

HDD 41c, 38c min, 41c max

These temps high? netbook is just sitting flat on desk. wooden desk. nothing is blocking the vents.

Should be worryed. Running windows 7

13-12-2011, 11:31 PM
Ok Speedy.

Just got round to trying that slipstream winxp pro sp3 cd and it gets upto the screen with select what hdd and partion you want to install windows on but there is no HDD or partions in the list. Mite have to redo the cd on a xp machine. and would we need any xtra files for it to see the HDD?

Im on a xp pc all tomorrow from 8.30am to 5.00pm and can go on it after 5pm till 7pm. Any time best for you? Will have all the files on deasktop on the xp pc tomorrow so will be ready for you. Let me know whens best for you to try it out.


13-12-2011, 11:49 PM
I had this exact problem when trying to install xp on a originally vista notebook (HP).the problem was the SATA drivers. You need to slipstream them like speedy was saying. It worked perfect after.

Speedy Gonzales
14-12-2011, 10:00 AM
Ok make sure XP is up to date (with the updates from today as well). And make sure net framework 2 is installed. Nlite needs it to run properly

15-12-2011, 11:18 AM
Just sent a message to you speedy.

16-12-2011, 11:22 PM
Ok the xp cd worked fine. :) Got windows xp and windows 7 on it now.

Just one last thing. In windows 7 ultimate under device manager i have got:

SM Bus Controller

How do i fix this?

Sweet must have been the right drivers. That SMB drivers maybe the chipset drivers? Double click on it then go to the details tab change it to hardware ID's. Copy one of the entries there in Google or here. See what it says

17-12-2011, 09:47 AM

I tryed the chiset driver off the HP site for the pc and the right OS but didnt help.

Speedy Gonzales
17-12-2011, 10:01 AM
Delete that smb controller entry, then reboot. See if it disappears. Youre meant to install chipset drivers after you install any version of windows

17-12-2011, 10:17 AM
Just tryed Delete restart option and still back in device manager.

Speedy Gonzales
17-12-2011, 10:21 AM
Double click on that entry go to driver tab / click on update driver. Select first option. See if it finds one.

17-12-2011, 10:31 AM
Tryed that.

It search's pc and then searchs online but unable to to find driver software and unable to install your sm bus controller
