    Default DV6000 bios

    I'm trying to access my bios but when I hit f12 I get a very limited screen-is there a way around the hp gui to the full bios? Trying to load XP on this macine which has the original hd that has been wiped to an unformatted state(no backup disk) need to turn off the sata thing.
    thanx

    Please read the stickies before you post. There is an XP install guide there.

    From the xp install guide:

    • The HP BIOS for the dv2500/dv6500/dv9500 series lacks the option to disable SATA Support, so Windows XP will not recognize the harddrive without following the special procedures explained below.
    edit: not sure if this applies to the dv6000
    Vostro 1500
    - Intel C2D T7250 2.0 GHz - 1GB RAM - 256 MB 8600M GT -
    - 80GB 5400RPM - Vista Ultimate - 24X CD Burner/DVD Combo - 56-WHr 6 Cell Battery -

    It does apply, as the dv6000 lacks this BIOS option as well.

    The crippled BIOS is the real one, no way to "unlock" it.

    I pressed F10 at boot time to go into the BIOS on my DV6000 and it has an option to disable native SATA there.

    Odd, as mine does not. (version F38).
