Help with Hybrid HDD/SSD HP DV6T-2000

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I bought a seagate hybrid 8GB SSD/1TB HDD to install on an aging HP DV6t laptop and replace the 320 GB drive. I assumed I could just replace the drive and pop in the Windows 7disc and go through install, but seems like the laptop is looking for some specific HP files and won't let me process past the BIOS screen.

It say something along the lines of No bootable device found, insert boot media and press any key to continue.

I downloaded the recovery utility disc and it got to load some windows files, but when it asks me to insert the recovery disks it just stays there.

Is there any special drivers or extra steps I need to take since this is a hybrid drive?

No it should not matter. You may need to go into the bios and make sure that the computer is set to boot from the DVD drive. Unless the HD is defective you shouldn't have any problems using it,
