Hi,


Guys, one of my friend gave me his lappy HP DV2700 SPECIAL EDITION. I didn't know that recovery partition is useful thing, i deleted & formatted all partition, now when i clean install win 7 or win8 by bootable usb or bootable DVD i get this error: 0x80070013.

Now there is no OS in lappy, I tried UBUNTU but it also failed. How to solve this prob ??? Plz help me guys. :( Now i dont have Recovery partion and recovery CD.

Are any of the existing partitions visible when you run Windows setup?

Yes all existing partition is visible. i'm able to delete/format partition also. I ve read that there is some kind of chipset lock inside lappy so user cant install any other OS. :(

Bro, partition is not problem here. Something locked by HP. :(

I have HBCD (Hiren), can it help to solve my prob ?

Check if EFI Secure boot is enabled in bios. if yes then disable it and Enable legacy boot.

Vendors who supply laptops with Windows 8, do this and it really p*sses me off. they force you to buy a Windows license if you want to buy a high end laptop, even if you already have a legit license with you. :pullhair:

how to do that, in lappy bios only 2-3 option is given like changing boot order and some memory test. :/

have you tried pressing F1 or F10 or Esc key repeatedly when the HP logo appears?

Pressing those buttons takes me to BIOS setting where i can see basic settings to change. Not getting advance settings. :mad::confused:

Q.C Passed. Tested. OK
Taken from a MS tech site. This isn't my solution.

Try the following steps and let us know if this did or didn't help you out.

1. Click the 'Start Orb' > Click 'All Programs' > Click 'Accessories' > Right-click 'Command Prompt > Select 'Run as Administrator'
2. (In the command prompt) type "diskpart" without the quotes [ENTER]
3. Make sure that you are at "c:\" then type "diskpart" [ENTER]
4. You will then be in Diskpart.ext cmd.. Type "list volume" [ENTER]
5. Select the volume you want to clear, look for the partition and remember the vol number,
Type "select volume <number> [ENTER]
6. Type "attributes volume clear readonly" [ENTER]
7. Reboot and give it a shot
