Trying to install XP on new hard dive for an HP Pavilion A6000

  1. So I have an HP Pavilion A6000 that was running vista on it. The original Hard Drive is dead and I have a new Seagate Barracuda 500GB drive that I want to install. The recovery disc that had Vista wont work as it doesnt recognize the new drive as an HP product etc etc.

    But I have a retail version of XP and want to load it onto the new HDD. After running the XP setup/instal disc I learned that I need the sata drivers, otherwise setup stops. So my question is where can I find the sata drivers that I need to finish my installation of XP? Thanks.

    Try the HP website. That's where they should be.
