Re: Toshiba satellite Pro A200
This is an old problem, I assume you've figured it out by now, but I'll post for any others who may have this problem.
The SATA controller needs to be changed in the BIOS, I think the default is ACPI or something that and it needs to be changed to IDE, if not then it's vice versa.... Just whichever one is it, change it to the other

You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone
