    hey guys, i would really like help on a related problem... I want to install linux (a small distribution) on my toshiba 100ct, it has a 1.9 GB hard drive, no usb ports, only pcmcia ports, and usb pcmcia adapters don't work with it... so I can only transfer files via a compact flash (cf) card attached to a pcmica adapter, but even if I get the linux distribution on there I can`t boot form the cf card, I was hoping someone could help

Hi,
I have a solution, its sort of BIOS fix.
I've found it on the net a while ago, but can't find the URL now.
I can email you the procedure and all relevant files and info.
I've did it for 20G HD, so I assume no reason why it shouldn’t work
for larger one as well.
Post you email if interested.

By taking out the HDD and format FAT32 by using external usb on other pc. Don't forget to copy WIN9X CD into the HDD. Put it back on the laptop and boot from floppy. Run windows installation.

That is not a solution. The BIOS doesn't gauge the size of the disk by the partitioning, it's from the cylinders, heads and sectors.

Ok get a program called Partition Magic, I have found you a Tutorial here: http://www.le.ac.uk/cc/dsss/docs/pm4-main.shtml Basically, you divide the 8.5GB into smaller sizes, NO MORE than 4GB, so say 2x3GB, & 1x2.5GB, or whatever suits.. then ya Format each Partition, Make ONE an Active Boot Partition, the rest logical ones. Your actual Size of the drives will be less than the Total due to Formatting information etc. Read the tutorial carefully B4 ya do anything. Ya be using the bigger storage in no time...

What are the maximum limit to increase the hd,ram,prossesor in sattelite u100 toshiba notebook 2005


Your model has room for one expansion memory module. Toshiba typically came configured with one static module. The memory specification is very likely DDR PC2700. The maximum size available for one memory module of DDR PC2700 is 1 GB. The HD size is only limited by what you can find with a PATA (IDE) interface, typically 320 GB. Installing a new processor may be prohibitively expensive, and the speed would depend on BIOS support. The BIOS may support the fastest Pentium IV processor, @ 3 GHz.

A link for a 320 GB drive, @ $96.28 (shipped) is here.

Toshiba libretto BIOS Reset


If there is a password that is not allowing you to reset the BIOS, I would recommend going to the following website and having one of the technicians use their proprietary devices that can unlock it for you. Im not sure if there is a charge but this may be the best solution to avoid any headaches. Just let them know there is a bios password preventing you from entering the BIOS and you need it removed and they should be able to help you from there.

You cant boot from cd. Try changing the boot order in the BIOS and allow the CD to have ownership over the Harddisk Drive. This way the computer is forced to boot from the CD.

100Ct


Hi, Depends on what OS you are using. For this particular model (Libretto 100CT), it is probably either Win9X or RedHat (or some Linux variation). In Win9X, you might try F8 & run it in DOS and run: Scandisk c: /autofix /surface; Scanreg /fix If it is beyond repair you have to have access to the OS installer CD. Sometimes Win9X installer is also saved in the HD. Try checking if it is inside your HD and run setup. Hope this be of some help. Pls post again how things turn up. kind regards.
