    Loaded XP SP2 on a Satellite P205-S6307, used Toshiba audio drivers, Packard Bell Video driver, and a few other manufacturers driver files to make it work. ALL devices work fine, including LAN, WiFi, SM Bus, WebCam, etc. If you need details or files, please let me know.

Unfortunately friends, XP is being phased out. When we in the U.S. allowed Microsoft to become a virtual monopoly (by ignoring our own experiences with the railroads, the telephones and other greedy corporations such as the oil companies and the evil empire of MS) we allowed congress and the courts to ignore the Taft Hartley Act so this is what you get i.e. you bow to the Master, take the crumbs he gave and thank whatever God you pray to that he spared you your life despite your insolence.
You will get your machine to work (eventually) but probably not completely because it is designed to work with Vista. This is the first GUI from MS that appears, so far, the be (nearly) "...a fully operational Death Star." (Star Wars)

Have a Nice Day,

    I have the same laptop: P205-S6307. This is what I did:


    After taking it out of the box I pressed the power button
    just to see the Toshiba Logo. I shut the power off and installed Windows XP.
    One of the first questions they ask is where one wants it installed. I removed
    all the partitions and created two roughly equal sized partitions and formatted
    the first one and installed XP. I had to use another system to download some of
    the drivers – especially for the LAN and wireless drivers. Once I was connected
    to the internet I ran Windows Update and under the hardware listing, found more
    drivers and installed them. Some of the Vista
    drivers will work in XP but most do not. Make sure you go to for the
    chipset drivers if you are running XP.


    I borrowed a Vista DVD from a friend and installed it with
    his key. With the LAN driver

    Installed, I called Microsoft because the OS had to have the
    key changed to the correct one on the bottom of the laptop.

    Now I had two operating systems running on the same machine because
    Vista detected that XP was installed on the
    hard drive. It installed a boot loader – a little window that pops up after the
    Toshiba Logo finishes – that gives me the option of running one or the other.

    I’ve been using this laptop for a year now and Vista runs noticeably faster than XP –particularly with
    video creation and editing. No drivers are available for your SD card slot so far
    and it appears that the keyboard functions won’t work as designed to – Mainly the
    “FN” key functions. The web cam software is pretty cool but doesn’t even work
    completely in Vista and not at all in XP.

    A few last things: You cannot install Vista
    first. XP has to installed first and that’s not just on the laptop but any
    system. If you partitioned th Hard Drive correctly, when running either OS you will have two hard drives designated C an D or C and E. the free space is available to both operating systems. Do not get them confused. The drive letters may be switched because your boot disk is C in both Operating Systems but XP is on drive "0" and Vista is on drive "1". Don't be just have to get used to it. If you are using MS Office, you will have to have at least the 2003 suite for Vista.

    Have fun...I learned a few things form doing it this way

This is a case where you best contact Toshiba. Why? Because you should get support from them for a new machine in the first place and also if you do not contact them, how do they ever know that a Vista only support for this machine is not sufficient for real world users. Call them on their support line and ask for the drivers.
