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 need to intall a freecom usb external hard disk to an old computer uses windows 98 an i havent a drive Any help please? How can download s driver for this disk?


Unfortunately, the company only supported: OS: Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / Mac OS X v10.3 or higher and Time Machine (OS X v 10.5 Leopard) compatible, for their USB hard drives.

You would need someone to write a driver for you or to connect to a computer with a supported OS.

I wish that I could be of more help.

I am trying to replace vista with xp on my toshiba a205 5800. i have bought the xp disk but when installation gets to the point of transferring files to the hd, it says that no hard drive is present. i...


The reason why Windows XP installation CD cannot detect the hard drive is because your Toshiba has a SATA hard drive and the Windows installation CD does not have the SATA driver on the CD.
If you do not have the SATA driver then you can get around this problem. Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

I need drivers


Go to www.toshiba.com and search their support site for your laptop model number (not the hard drive model you have listed) to download the drivers you need.

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Installation of windows xp on a preloaded windows vista laptop


See this , you have to download the SATA driver , as you have a SATA hard disk , then slipstream it into the xp installation package.

Alternatively , put the driver on a floppy and press F2 when prompted during the setup when its loading all the files (It says Press F2 if you want t o install a SATA Driver"

Then it will detect your drive and install as normal :D

Installing XP on Toshiba Portege R500 Notebook


Guys, if you have the genuine XP CD, please download the Storage Driver from Intel and slipstream it into your version of XP CD. You can also slipstream Service Packs into it as well.
Personally I hate Vista so much. It really brings out the angry devil in me.
By the way, the best and easiest way to slipstream is to install and use nLite http://www.nliteos.com/
Let me know if you want help on installing XP on R500 (I build it a few days ago, but regret to update the BIOS to version 1.06 as I lost the Ctrl key on it).
To get to the BIOS, press and hold the Esc key then Power button.
