Desktop HP Pavilion p6130y PC, installation of Windows 7 on the new SATA hard drive problem

First of all, I can't find the model p6130y number on the HP Support.  The original hard drive came out and it was replaced with a Seagate SATA 850 GB drive, buy Windows 7 on DVD and I tried to install. Obtained through formatting the drive. Their only option now is to "Load a driver."  He says that I need to locate the HD driver on the media and press OK.  I can't find such an on installation disk so will try the find the right HD drivers for this model computer download on a USB key. Any ideas?


Here is the link for the driver sata for your model:

Just download it and do not run it.

The motherboard in your model has major problems with the drives out and that the results in the hard drive and DVD drive from the BIOS endangered.

It could happen to your model, it's why W7 cannot find the hard drive.

You will need to download and install this free program.

After installing 7 - Zip, right-click on the Sata driver you downloaded and select 7 - zip option in the list.

Select extract to: I leave extract the name of the file and extract the exe file in a folder of driver.

Once you have the file, open it and copy the contents of the folder on a drive portable usb flash without the src folder.

With the flash player and the installation of W7 media connected to the computer, boot from the installation of W7 media.

After selecting the install now option, select the training - Advanced menu, Options and select the option load a driver.

You should now see the storage driver files listed.

If you check the box, it only includes the compatible driver.

Follow the prompts and hopefully, W7 should install correctly.

  • Windows Vista install the new WD hard drive empty - does not not :(

    It was my original question:

    And now...

    I got my CD of HP recovery and ordered a new WD 500 GB HDD... same features as the seagate who pooped me and I can't get windows install on the new HD

    No matter what I do, computer wants to open the Recovery Manager and according to the available procedure does not work.  It works me in circles asking for #1 drive, then the drive recovery supplement and back with no progress.

    What I have to do is use this form: but only the Recovery manager opens when I boot from the CD.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    If I followed your questions correctly... you had a BIOHD-2 error, ordered HP recovery discs, replaced the hard drive and tried to restore your system with no luck. Is that a correct assessment of the situation?

    OK, you need to make a Windows Vista install screen... not who's going to go with your HP recovery CD/DVD. The disks do not contain the Windows installation routine, only the HP Recovery Manager. These discs contain more or less, an image of the HP installed OS and software, plus some drivers and applications. To the best of my knowledge, you should have three DVDs (1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3/3) more an additional drive. You should boot from CD 1 of 3... Then, when asked to insert the 2/3... Then, when asked to insert 3/3. And finally if/when necessary additional drive.

  • Stop error: 0x0000007b while trying to install Windows XP Home Edition on SATA hard drive.

    Original title: new hard drive Blues.

    stop: 0x0000007b (0xF78D663c, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000

    I need help

    Hi aqm0207,

    How you try to install Windows XP Home Edition?

    You may receive an error message "Stop 0x0000007B" in the following scenarios:

    (a) a device driver that your computer boot controller needs is not configured to start during the startup process.

    (b) a device driver that needs your computer startup controller is damaged.

    (c) It can also occur if the hard drive in the BIOS configuration is bad.

    You can check if the SATA hard drive is correctly configured in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) & can also update the BIOS. If you are not comfortable to do, you can contact the manufacturer of your computer for help.

    Note: Changing the BIOS / chipset can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/chipset can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.

    You can also check this link:Advanced troubleshooting of errors "Stop 0x0000007B" in Windows XP

    Hope the helps of information. Please post back and we do know.

  • Can I install windows 7 on the superdive replacement hard drive

    Hello people,

    Recently I replaced the drive of my macbook pro 13 inch mid-2012 with an adapter (caddy tray) to put in a second hard drive (500 GB todhiba).

    Now I am trying to install windows 7 with bootcamp (on an os x 10.9.5, bootcamp 5.1.2), but when I boot from the usb device, when windows ask me which drive I want to install it, it says: windows cannot be installed to this disk, drive must be formatted ntfs + your computer hardware seem unable to run windows 7 check your system components and try again.

    I've tried several things: the direct USB win7 reformat, delete the partition, create partition... still no luck.

    Of in osx: reformat the disk with unallocated space (MBR) and try again to install direct USB... had the same error messages.

    I even tried to install Ubuntu gnome rather with a live usb works but all I get when holding the option button while booting is my Macintosh HD, the drive appears.

    Can someone give me about workaround or even show me the way? I am out of ideas now.

    Thank you very much

  • The upgrade of the internal SATA HARD drive for HP Pavilion dm4


    I have the HP dm4 - 1150 bought ea I think in December 2004.  It has intel core i5 and 500 GB of HARD drive.

    It works very well.  I ben hae wanting to upgrade the HARD disk but hard drives SATA 2.5 inches for this ability were not available.

    drives internal SATA 2.5-inch 2 TB for laptops are now available.  The OEM version seems to be available for about £80 in the United Kingdom.  Has anyone successfully updated your laptop HARD drive?  Does anyone know if I buy and install the new 2 TB SATA HDD if it works.  If not why?

    Would appreciate a response from anyone who has tried this on dm4 or similar computers HP laptop

    Thank you

    If it's the original drive it is SATA-II as SATA-III was not then invented. Confirmed here:

    You can replace it with a SATA-III disc without any problems. They are perfectly backwards compatible. Your motherboard is a SATA-II at best and could even be SATA - I have but I do not.

    I avoid the biggest current disks because drive manufacturers must invent new technological tricks to squeeze more and more zeros and ones in the same size box and it takes time to work on the kinks. Right now, 1 TB is the sweet spot for the readers of the laptop and 2 TB or 3 for desktop drives. Stay with a 1 TB drive 7200 rpm or still a hybrid drive of 1 TB would not a bit of extra money.

    Hope that helps.

  • New window if it is multiple windows open after the opening of hard drives.

    Hello, today as I was browsing through my files and from the hard drive, when I open a Windows hard drive folder opens a new window (sometimes two or even three) for her. Can someone tell me how to solve this problem? Oh by the way, my settings folder is defined so that each folder open in the current window.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply, but I guess it was just a temporary problem fixed by rebooting. A few minutes ago I did once again and it behaved normally and opened my drive in the current window.

  • Historical files Windows 8 will not recognize the new external hard drive

    I just bought a new laptop (Sony Vaio) with Windows 8Pro (System op 64-bit, Intel I7, 1THD).  One of the reasons is that I have approached Win8, is I liked the concept of the new 'File History' backup utility  I started to use the computer with an ext WD My Guide of the HD and the history of the files seemed to work.  Then the drive external hard went wrong and I just bought a new WD My Passport 2 t ext HD.  Historical files will not recognize this drive.  He keeps asking the old drive.  When I attached the new drive and go to the screen "Select drive", it says "no usable drives are detected.  Please connect a drive... "I know that the drive is there because I see under 'My computer' and I can copy files to it.  But the history of the files do not recognize.  WD, I called and they helped me to update drivers and even made a update firmware on the drive, but nothing is done.  I tried several fixes suggested in a few links Microsoft 'how file history works... '. «, «What to do if the file history works more...» ", etc, but all without success. The tech also remote BestBuy Geek squad my computer and tried EVERYTHING and could not get it to succeed.  BTW, it's not the HD post because put us on another computer to WIN 8 and Hx file found immediately.  Tech people thought that it was a deep registry with Win 8 problem and their only suggestion was to reimage my computer with the original recovery disk.  But who is going to cost me an arm and a leg.

    I'm not very tech savvy, so I know there must be something very simple, I'm do wrong or overlooking and I hope that some dear soul on this forum or someone from Microsoft can give me an idea or two.  Thank you very much

    I was having this same problem, but then noticed a presentation text easy to miss in the historical files tool that says that the disc "cannot be a part of a library" or something like that. In my case, I had files on my external hard drive that have been included in several libraries... and none that I really used, so I removed the files (and deleted the libraries for good measure). A fast system restart later, and my player does not appear.

    I don't know why MS did not propose it again for this thread as the more obvious thing to check, but there you have it. Something simple and quick to check that could save you some frustration.



    I have WINDOWS VISTA and just tried to reinstall my laptop of restoration on a HARD disk partition.


    When I press 'OK' (which is the only option), it tries to start again, until I get the same error through the black screen.

    How can I get out of this loop please?

    Thank you.



    For any problem with the help of the recovery Partition that has been copied to the hard disk by the computer manufacturer, you must contact them.

    This recovery process is the manufacturer, not Microsoft.


    You never told us why you wanted to do a restore. If you had serious errors and the recovery process does not work, you will have hardware problems. BUT we're only guessing at this stage due to lack of information to help you.

    See you soon.

    Hi sativa66,

    Try these steps and check if you get the headphones:

    1. open the control panel. (Classic view)

    NOTE: open the start menu and click on the menu button of the control panel.

    2. click on the audio icon.

    3. click on the recording tab.

    NOTE: this also works on the reading tab, but there are usually no hidden audio devices there.

    4. right click on an empty area and click Show disabled devices.

    5. you will now see the audio devices disabled with the arrow pointing down on them.

    NOTE: these audio devices may vary depending on the installed audio card or chip you have.

    6. right-click on each listed off audio device that you want to activate and click Activate.

    7. Once you activate the device, you will see the headset.

    NOTE: you can now change the property settings on these audio devices in the way you want.

    8. click OK to close the sound window.

    Kind regards
