I have a toshiba g35-av600 laptop and Im trying to install xp but since the drives come in a raid array the installation doesnt recognize the HDD. If you press the F6 key at the first blue screen you are promted for the raid config but since it doesnt have a floppy you cannot insert it. How can I fix this?

If the installation CD of Win XP does not recognize your harddrive(s), it is usually because SATA support is not working until you install from a Win XP CD that includes Service Pack 2.
Toshiba has an article about this problem here.
If the install with Service Pack 2 still fails, then the only option left is to integrate the necessary drivers from Toshiba's support web page (download) into your installation CD. Softpedia has an excellent guide how to do that. You can find that here.

Just replaced HDD in Satellite L305 w/ above HDD. I will be installing Windows XP SP3 on the Toshiba HDD that I just installed, will I need to download the ACHI XP F6 Install tool for this HDD?


ACHi drivers/firmware updates are loaded after xp generic driver installation, you only need to have the drivers handy on a floppy during the xp installation for a raid driver array

No Audio Sound RealTek Won,t Install?


Here is the driver link

1.For windows XP

http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/qg600audiox.exe

2.For windows vista

http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/driver_audio_sigmatel_25601A.exe

According to me, you are using windows xp as there won't be any problem with windows vista.

The sound card you are using is high definition audio.so you need to download Microsoft UAA Bus Controller Software.Install this first and installed the driver for windows xp.

here is the link for Microsoft UAA Bus Controller Software

This will solve it

Qosmio uses bios setting to configure the raid type for the HDD set up. this is not dependant on have two HDDs in you laptop. When bootining the laptop enter the bios setup F2 (I think not on a toshiba right now) check and reset the raid configuration for the drives. I am asuming you are using the origional recovery disks for your qosmio. If not you need to aquire a usb floppydrive and the raid drivers for you laptop iin order to install windows of any kind on this laptop.
