Downgrading my laptop from vista to window xp sp2

My friend recently bought a used toshiba satellite p205 s6237 and decided to format it because he doesnt like vista and find it hard to use it. he installed window xp but none of the drivers were found starting from the vga, sound, lan, wifi ...etc.
and he refuses to take back to vista or buy another one
can we find drivers to this laptop on the internet that runs with windows... because honestly i m looking and it is not getting me anywhere

You can find all the drivers on the net but you'll have to know exactly what type of devices you have. Either you can refer to the invoice that you got when you bought the system of you can physically check by opening the system. DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!! To know the model no. of the devices I would go to the toshiba site and look for the config. of the system. If you have any service tag no or like that you can put that when you go on toshiba site and it would tell you the detailed config or your laptop you then can either download the drivers from that site for the appropriate OS that you want to install or you go to the device manufacturer's site and download the drivers from there.

I downgraded my Toshiba P205 laptop from Vista to XP PRO


Since you do not have the original restore CD more than likely you're missing the hardware drivers specific to the Satellite P205.

Have you tried:

Downgrade from Vista TO Xp


Hi Bienana,

Steps must be taken in advance. Laptops are different from desktops. They have proprietary drivers that need to be available for boot or bad things happen. For example the CD-ROM won't be there any more. Then how will you load anything?

What you will have is a plastic rectangle that keeps asking for an operating system you can't install.

First, create a boot disk.
Second, create another boot disk.
Test them both. Make sure the CD works.

Now for some alternatives to formatting your hard drive.

Click here for a site thats offering Windows XP recovery CD's to those Vista owners that want XP. The offer is good through July 31, 2009.

Click here For the Toshiba site specifically for downgrading Vista to XP. It's a source for the drivers that inevitably don't get copied, what rights you have for which version and so on.

Both sites will give you some important insight before you take the plunge.
