Go to the Toshiba Website Here and download the drivers for your laptop. You will need the model number as shown on the base on the main sticker, and also the short code may be useful.

Cheers :)

I assume you are needing the 32-bit XP drivers so here you go. FYI - For anyone downgrading from Vista to XP - ALWAYS check the european support site for the XP drivers FIRST!

LAN:

WiFi: (there's 2 different types your model may have come with, so choose from the list)
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads

Display Drivers: (You didn't mention which you had, the Intel or nVidia Chipset, so here's both)
Intel: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/T8Clearance.aspx?url=/17353/a08/win2k_xp14371.exe&agr=Y&ProductID=2800&DwnldID=17353&lang=eng

nVidia: http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html

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.
