Having problems with your HP Pavilion ze5170 Notebook ?

I had a problem with the hard drive and I bought a

\015 I had a problem with the hard drive in my HP Ze5170 and I bought a new IDE 80GB, installed it and tried to load XP. It goes all the way and copy all files and at the end it asks you to remove any floppy disk if you have in the drive to restart to continue the XP install. When it comes back after reset, it does not continue with the XP install, but it goes back and try to boot from CD and do the install again. The HD light is on and I get no errors. Please help.\015

Answers :

Sometimes that messege comes up when you leave cds or floppys or usb hard drives in the computer make sure you dont have cd or floppy in the computer hope this helps
When you are installing xp, just after first restart go to bios and set HDD as first boot device
