What the %@&# is that ?
You can easily determine your exact model on the HP site, or if the subject computer is used to access the site, have that detected automatically by the HP site.


Duh!
Most of the following is easily found on the HP site or on the web if you had bothered to look.

If you want to restore all the originally supplied HP software including Windows, if you're in the US or Canada.....

Scroll down to
CD-ROM order page - Recovery Discs
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

(It says number of Recovery Discs, but it's actually number of Recovery Disc sets.)

(If you're NOT in the US or Canada, select a different country at
http://www.hp.com
at the top right of the page, choose Select software and drivers, type in Pavilion dv1000, select your exact model or dv1000 CTO, and scroll down to see if you have the choice of CD-ROM order page - Recovery Discs.)


If one is available, it will cost you a lot less than buying a single regular OEM XP Home or Pro CD, or a OEM MCE 2 CD set.You must boot from the first CD.

If you don't have an internet connection, you could order it on someone elses's computer, or order it by phoning HP.
........

If a Recovery Disc set is listed but you can no longer order it, try searching for one on the web - there are some web sites that have copies of them they can sell you.
........

Little or no cost but it will only restore Windows.

OR, if you can't or can no longer order a Recovery Disc set and can't find one on the web.

The OEM license for Windows for brand name computers allows you to legally use a regular OEM Windows CD, or a copy of one, along with the Product Key for your Windows installation, to install XP on your computer.
.
Use a borrowed, or, preferably, a bootable CD-R copy of a, regular OEM Windows XP CD that is the same version - Home or Pro - as the version on the official Mirosoft sticker on the outside of the computer case, and the Product Key on the sticker. You must boot from the CD.


(If it has XP MCE, you must use the OEM MCE 2 CD set or copies of it. You must boot from the first CD. If that's what you have, I can supply additional information about Setup bugs on the CDs that may cause you to have problems.)

If you can't borrow or copy someone elses's OEM XP CD(s)
- if you can get a Recovery Disc set, it will cost you a lot less than buying a regular OEM XP Home or Pro CD, or a OEM MCE 2 CD set.
- if you can't get a Recovery Disc set, you will have to buy at least a OEM XP Home CD

Whenever you load Windows from a regular Windows CD (or DVD) from scratch, after Setup is finished you must load the drivers for the mboard, particularly the main chipset drivers, in order for Windows to have the proper drivers for and information about your mboard hardware, including it's AGP or PCI-E, ACPI, USB 2.0 if it has it, and hard drive controller support. If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. If you load drivers from the web, brand name system builders and mboard makers often DO NOT have the main chipset drivers listed in the downloads for your model - in that case you must go to the maker of the main chipset's web site, get the drivers, and load them.

You will also need to get and install any needed device drivers for things built into the computer Windows didn't automatically find the drivers for, for your model from the HP site.

Select your country at
http://www.hp.com
at the top right of the page, choose Select software and drivers, type in Pavilion dv1000, select your exact model or dv1000 CTO.

If you don't have an internet connection, you will need to access the HP site, and possibly the maker of the main chipset's web site for the main chipset drivers (see above), on another computer and get the drivers from there, copy them to a flash drive , and use that to install the drivers on your computer.

If you have an internet connection but can't access the internet after Setup has finished because Windows doesn't automatically recognize your network adapter and install drivers for it, you will need to access the HP site on another computer and get at least the network adapter drivers from there, copy them to a flash drive , and use that to install at least the network adapter drivers on your computer.

If the network adapter, or any other device, did not come with the computer, if Setup didn't recognize it and install drivers for it, you will have to go to the maker of the device's web site and get and install the drivers.
