Re: Running XP on a Toshiba Satelite L40-18X
Well by default (Windows XP PRO sp2), have some generic drivers for external modems & install them by default. If that doesn't work & get a splat sign on device manager "USB" devices, you should use the cd that came with the modem & install the original driver. If still that doesn't work, you may need to login to a cafe` or something to get the updated driver for your modem at the manufacturer's website.

There are case where BIOS stting doesn't contain any point of configuration for SATA.,
Step 1 : Download SATA driver
Here is the link : http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12474/eng/iata621_enu.exe&agr=N&ProductID=2101&DwnldId=12474&strOSs=All&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=eng
Step 2 : Download a software called "nlite"
Here is the link : http://home.midmaine.com/~nlite/nlite/nLite-184.108.40.206.installer.exe
Now you need to include SATA driver with Windows XP cd so that windows XP recognize your HARD DRIVE.it can't be include diectly so
Installed the nlite software and follow the instruction by going to the link below.
Note : Microsoft dotnet framework 2.0 or later is needed to install nlite in Windows XP,but if you are making a bootable Windows XP cd with sata driver pre-install then,you don't need it.
if your asking to install XP on top of vista.. if you do not like vista, then ur listening to your friends who have no idea what their talking about because its awesome and when windows 7 comes out youll be stunned...this is verry easy if you have XP disc ready, restart your computer you need to wipe ur hard drive to get rid of the old operating system, first save any thing you want thus wiping hard drive saves nothing.... techniquly its still there but ya....put in disc of XP and run the disc to install XP,. ACTIVATE IT AND WALA
Well... this is common on newer laptops. It is due to the fact your HDD is SATA (Serial ATA) and Windows XP CD does not have the drivers needed to recognize it. The solution I use is a bit High Tech: to remaster your Windows XP CD including the drivers needed. Or, just settle to live with Vista until January, when Windows 7 will be available to the public. If you are not faint of heart, google this: nLite; with this program you can remaster your XP CD. (You need a working PC with CD-RW to actually do the job).
If you have problems slipstreaming you can during the first part of the XP install by pressing the F6 key to install a 3rd party driver for the hard disk. Windows will prompt you to press F6 so be ready.
i think you need to make a os by yourself by using a software called nlite where it allow to put your hard drive driver. you can download your hard drive driver from your laptop company website. nowadays windows xp is unable to detect new hard drive like your case.
after you download the lastest version of nlite. its simple to make a custom os.
before you start the running nlite :-
1. you need to copy all files of wndows xp in a drive.
2. when you run nlite program, it will asked you the source -> just navigates to the place where you paste the xp files.
next steps are easy as they are user friendly
