Hi bimozx
Have you tried going into your bios and selecting boot from cd drive??
try that and put your windows cd in the drive, power down and then power up again!

Toshiba portege m100 hardwares not starting


Yes the CMOS battery needs to be changed. Then you can go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time.
The CMOS/BIOS will be set back to the defaults when you remove the CMOS battery and this may fix your problems.

Toshiba portege m100. lost windows xp. how do I clean install windows. no cd drive only usb ports. will not boot pxe.tried windows on formated flash drive, still no result.


Making a bootable flash drive involves a few tricks. I have had much better success using a utility to do the setup on those. Doing it manually works but not all the time.

I'd beg borrow or buy a usb dvd drive and boot off the install cd if nothing else. These have really dropped in price and are handy to have around.

I'm assuming you have set the bios to boot from the flash drive before it hits the hard drive? You would also have to set it to hit the usb dvd drive prior to the hd as well if you go that way.

When you get it booted it will ask if you want to format the drive before installing. You can also just pick a new directory to put windows in as well.

Don't forget to download all the drivers from Toshiba. You will need system info, video, and a network at the very least to get running and able to download the rest. These are very handy on a flash drive to plug in when you get xp started.

I WANT TO FORMAT MY TOSHIBA PORTEGE 7200CT LAPTOP TO WINDOW XP.HOWEVER,I DO NOT KNOW TO TO FORMAT


The instructions for this procedure are quite involved if you are talking about formatting and reinstalling the laptop operating system software. You need to have these things:
A Legitimate copy of the Operating system software on an official microsoft release CD that is bootable. Then you go to the bios in the startup usually by pressing the delete key while laptop is booting. then go to the boot proiority list and make sure the cd drawer is in the first option. Reboot the computer and then when the option to boot from cd comes up, press any key and it will boot from the cd.
Once the installation options appear, you need to select the hard disk to use and then select the format and install Windows XP. Select format using NTFS filing system and then the process starts to format the drive and install the file need to complete setup.
Once the GUI portion of set up installs and you have logged in for the first time, don't forget to change the boot priority back to the hard disk!
Hope this helps :D

Hi,

With the notebook off plug the USB drive into a port, hold down "F12" when powering up and choose your Boot-device (USB).

If there is no option to boot from the USB (Removable Device) then chances are you are going to need a BIOS update which you can download from the Toshiba support website.



Regards.
