HowTo Windows 7 x64, HP Pavilion dv6000, KA034EA#ABB, USB boot

This tutorial is for HP Pavilion dv6000 with AMD chipset and NVidia Graphic card.

I gues if your HP Pavilion dv6000 have product number KA034EA#ABB on the ass of your laptop then you can keep reading.
Otherwise you can take a look in here to find your own solution.

Back to case..
HP Pavilion dv6000 only boots from USB if the USB device in BIOS is configured as first boot device.
USB device on HP Pavilion dv6000 will not boot via boot device list (F9).

When you first install Windows 7 from USB after first reboot you need to go back to the BIOS setttings and set back the first boot device to Laptop HDD. Othervise the windows setup will launch again and you start the installation from beginning.

After windows setup is done the Wireless, LAN and WEB Cam driver will work out of the box.
Also there will be some audio installed, but the MediaCenter QuickPlay panel will not work.

Now you should install windows update including all hardware devices.
You can exclude language packs.

Windows updates will install HP QuickPlay, Symnatec pointing device, NVidia driver.

After first hundred of updates and restarting few times you computer you can clear windows update cache with
@echo off
net stop wuauserv
rd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution /Q /S
SC sdshow wuauserv
wuauclt.exe /detectnow
This will speed up to find more updates quicker.

After windows is completely up to date and there are no hardware updates via windows updates you can finally install last updates:

Chipset driver (Coprocessor)

Card reader driver (base system device)
