XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

I have Toshiba Laptop L300. It does not install xp . however it easily install Window 7


Hi,

Probably because you have a SATA Hard Drive. If you want to install WIN XP, you may need to change your hard drive settings. For this go to the BIOS and change to Compatible Mode or IDE or Non SATA. The Reasons that WIN 7 install with no problems is because WIN 7 has already builtIn SATA drivers on it

I have toshiba satellite L505-S5990 model.i have installed windows xp by changing the settings in Bios that is sata hard disk enabled as compatable mode from AHCI.if i change to AHCI i can't install...


If you would like to make use of the SATA controller's AHCI features, you should enable this BIOS feature. But please note that enabling this feature requires you to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.
If you do not intend to use the AHCI features, it's recommended that you disable this BIOS feature. This allows you to use the native Windows XP driver. You won't need to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.

Toshiba satelite p200-ab1 formatted drive which previously had windows vista and now want to load windows xp but will not recognize a drive to load to. if I try nto reload vista it will take but why not...


Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up.
At reboot, tap the F2 key to enter setup that will allow you to make a change in the BIOS.
Disable caching module before you change the drive sata settings.
Set the hard drive to "ATA compatible."

Toshiba a200/205 series Hard disk is toshiba mk1246gsx need compatible driver for windows xp I need to convert my OS from vista to XP


Well... this is common on newer laptops. It is due to the fact your HDD is SATA (Serial ATA) and Windows XP CD does not have the drivers needed to recognize it. The solution I use is a bit High Tech: to remaster your Windows XP CD including the drivers needed. Or, just settle to live with Vista until January, when Windows 7 will be available to the public. If you are not faint of heart, google this: nLite; with this program you can remaster your XP CD. (You need a working PC with CD-RW to actually do the job).

I can't downgrade Vista to Xp


You can install windows XP.
 
First go to BIOS and change sata mode to IDE mode
or option to disable SATA Native mode

then choose mode to IDE or disable SATA Native mode
then install windows XP

If there is no option about change sata mode in BIOS.
You should insert ahci driver to Windows XP CD using nLite

read this 
http://komku.blogspot.com/2007/11/integrate-driver-into-windows.html
you can use this driver 
http://cahya.prastyanto.googlepages.com/driver-sata-ahci-4920.zip

Or you can install windows by inserting driver when setup prompted


To install Windows XP with native SATA driver, perform the following steps:

Boot the notebook PC.

Insert the Windows XP installation CD into the optical CD/DVD drive.

Press the F6 key when prompted

Press the S key to specify the additional device.

Insert the SATA driver disk into drive A. (using floppy disk drive)


Follow the on-screen prompts.


Or if both way is cannot be done

i have the third way

use an unattended XP installation disk
you can download it from here:
http://fenopy.com/torrent/Windows_xp_sp3_5512_cdr_october_2008_with__sata_raid_/MTU2MTEzMA==/index.html
after you download
burn the CD image to the CD/DVD
then install XP using that CD/DVD
