Question about Toshiba Qosimo G35-AV660 Notebook

1 Answer

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.

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

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.

RAID 5 installed with Windows XP sp2 now the DVD ROM and ROM not present in Windows


It sounds like your system may be confusing your dvd drive and somehow including it in the raid array or something.

Does it see it without the raid setup?

Sata/raid not working on ASUS M2N MB


You may need to set up the RAID array before it will be detected. Look in the BIOS and see if there is a way to set up the RAID array there. If there isn't, watch as the PC boots up and see if there is an option to go into the RAID settings before windows starts. You may need to actually create an array before it will be seen.
