So, whats wrong with it???.
Does it give you a no POST solution or are you just asking if the NB could handle the 250GB HDD you want to plug in there???.

I want to know how to reinstall toshiba portege m200


This is in case you cannot boot into windows but you can get into bios:
Open your disk drive. Insert windows operating system disk into your disk drive. Restart your computer.
If you can get to the stage where you can see see bios entry key then keep pressing whatever key it is that you press to get into bios at start up.
Select the option that let's you choose the drive to boot from, mine is in advanced bios options. then go to either something like bios features or change boot drive.select whatever drive represents your CD-ROM drive and select it to be the first boot drive.
then save exit bios, I do this by pressing escape then Y to save and boot from the rom drive.
This will let you restart your installation of windows and
re-format the drive...
If you can boot into windows:
Then either re-format the drive and delete the partition when you do or...
Run a recovery of the system by installing your disk and letting it get to the stage wher it asks what action/task you want to perform and press r when prompted then follow the prompts to repair the files. This might not work though,
you could even try running a disk check as maybe a lucky chance of repair if you can get into windows.
If your PC keeps trying to boot from the CD drive after repair then re-enter bios at start up and change your hard drive back to first boot device to boot into windows.

It's better if you re-format though as repairing windows can be a little tricky.

It means that the BIOS cannot find a disk to boot.
Make sure you selected the hard drive in the boot settings of your BIOS
Remove all external DVD drives or floppy drives or ethernet cables
If you get an error message, you should start troubleshooting your hard drive.

Hi, 1. How to transfer/copy bootable XP files onto SD card and then boot up Toshiba Portege M205 from the SD card? 2. Is it possible to made an image of my Windows XP CD on SD card? Regards Tad


Requirements

  • PC running Windows XP/2000 with a CD/DVD burner.
  • USB Flashdrive (Or some way to transfer files to the 3epc once Windows is installed)
  • SD Card, a fast SDHC is recommended of at least 2GB.
  • XP3eSD Utility
  • Hitachi Microdrive Filter Drivers
  • Partedmagic (or another bootable CD with disk cloning software)
  • Windows XP CD (SP2 Only Tested, may work with others)
  • Asus Eee PC (Of course!!)
Instructions:
  1. Copy all files from your XP Install CD to a folder on your Hard Drive
  2. Download the XP3eSD utility and run it to create a new install CD capable of installing Windows to boot off the SD card reader
  3. Boot your 3epc from the CD made in step 2
  4. Install Windows onto a FAT partition, deleting all the existing partitions
  5. When windows boots for the first time turn off the swap file, system restore, and the screensaver.
  6. Then stick your USB thumb drive into the EEE with the Hitachi Microdrive Filter.
  7. Next copy the files from your thumb drive to the desktop and then properly remove the thumb drive.
  8. Unzip the microdrive files to a folder on the desktop. And Insert your SDHC Card into the EEE.
  9. You need to then Hit Start go to run, and type regedit. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USBSTOR\
    Inside that you should find a directory called something like Disk&Ven_USB2.0&Prod_CardReader_SD0&Rev_0100. Open it. Inside that you should find another directory wich is just a bunch of numbers. Open it. In the right pane you should see a key called "Hardware ID" Right click on it, and select modify. It should list about 7 lines of text. Copy ONLY the first line to the clipboard. Hit cancel, close regedit.
  10. Open cfadisk.inf in the directory you unzipped the microdrive filter to. Edit the section called [cfadisk_device] so that rather than containing 11 lines, just have one line. The line begins with: %MicroDrive_devdesc% = cfadisk_install,
    After the comma, hit ctrl V to paste what you coppied from the registry into the file then save the file.
  11. Go to Device manager. Under disk drives, you should see SiliconMotion and USB2.0 Card Reader. Right click on the card reader and click update driver. Direct the driver updater window to the Hitachi driver you just edited. It won't detect the driver automatically, you have to specifty that your supplying the disk for the hardware and force it to use the driver.
  12. Reboot using the Partedmagic CD or USB Flashdrive, Download it here
  13. Create a FAT32 partition on the SD card, same size as the one on the SSD in your 3epc
  14. Use 'fdisk -l' to find out the partition names of your SSD and SD.
  15. Type this command into a prompt: 'dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb1' When it finishes (it will take some time) type this command: 'dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1' (Note: If fdisk reported your SSD and SD as different than sda and sdb respectively, you must change that in the dd commands, if unsure ask in the support forums)
  16. When it finishes the task is complete, reboot and select to boot from the card reader
  17. Re-image the SSD of your 3epc with your restore DVD or USB.

Do you have the system restore disks for your tablet? Once you have restored windows then you need to use the second disk to load all the drivers

You can obtain the Recovery disk from Toshiba. Toshiba hotline number 1-800-457-7777 (US) 0844 800 6020 (UK). You need to provide your computer's part number correct to get the matching recovery disk. Usually they charges $39.95 including shipping to your address in US.

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
