Toshiba is not interested in solve this matter...
Remember this next time you need to buy another notebook...
I bought a Toshiba L45-S7423 and did suffer a lot to put WIndows XP SP2 on it.
My friend, Fernando, solves this matter for me.
Thanks to a lot of fragmented information I found at the internet I achieve a solution.
Please check if your system is exactly the same and do necessary adjustments:
My system came with:
Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2310 @ 1.46GHz
Toshiba SATA hard driver (MK1237GSX)
MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-850S
Intel Chipset GM965
Intel 82801 HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller
ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850
Ricoh Memory Stick Controller
Sunaptis PS/2 Port Touchpad
Realtek RTL8139/810x ethernet nic
Realtek RTL8187B wirelles 802.11g 54Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter
Toshiba Software modem
Realtek High Definition Audio
Let's go to the solution:
1- Go to Intel website and get the Intel® Chipset Identification Utility:
This software will help you identify your Chipset
2- If your Chipset is GM965, everything you need from Intel will come from:
Obs: You can slipstream the sata drivers with xp sp2 or if you have xp sp1 you can slipstream all three together (sata drivers, xp, sp2)!
Some guys used the following link and they recommend. It helped them to create their slipstream cd! I did not use this but if you want please pay attention to download the right drivers for your system.
3- Download 32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility for Intel® Matrix Storage Manager:
4- generate the floppy disk with f6flpy32.exe
5- Boot your system with Windows XP SP2 CD and with the floppy generated above. At the beginning of the boot sequence press F6 when this option appears at the botton of your screen.
Wait a second and it will ask you to press S or Enter.
Press S and specify you driver/controller. Pick the one below the one it wants,
you want the 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI. It will ask about S or Enter again, do Enter this time.
6- Start installing Windows and In 20 minutes you should have XP installed.
7- After first successful boot start adding following drivers.
8- Be sure to install Intel Chipset GM965 before any other:
9- Install Intel Matrix Storage Manager:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/T8Clearance.aspx?sType=&agr=N&ProductID=2101&DwnldID=14848&url=/14848/eng/iata78_enu.exe&PrdMap=&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows* XP Professional&lang=eng
10- Install Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver:
11- Install High Definition Audio Codecs from Realtek: (WDM_R182.zip)
Don't worry if your sound doesn't start working after first reboot... sometimes it stars working after next step
12- Install RICOH drivers: (nb_driver_w251u_cardreader_1.01.08.zip)
13- Be sure to have connectivity during all time because you will need some Microsoft automatic update to resolve unknown driver (ATK0100 ACPI Utility)
14) Get the wireless driver from Realtek (R8187B) from this page:
When you download the Realtek8187B driver you'll have a .inf file. Open the INF with Notepad. Go about 20 lines down under the IDs for 98/ME/2k/XP. One of those lines ends in 8187&REV_0200. Change it to 8197&REV_0200 as that is the hardware ID XP is using in this device. So, now update your driver using Device Manager
15) Download Toshiba Software modem:
16) Extract all files to a directory and go to Device Manager and choose update driver for the "not working" modem. You don't need to install de package, just the drivers. But you can try if you want... I did not...
And that's all! At least to me...

Did this once b4 with this model. heres what u do. u download a program (forget what its called) that allows u to slipstream the sata driver into the xp installation. u burn a new disc with the driver slipstreamed. then u hit whatever button to load the driver when windows starts extracting. thats the easier part. now all u have to do is find the drivers. last time i downloaded a zip file with most of them from some guys blog. if i find it again ill post the link. good luck driver hunting.

I installs Iostar.sys alright, formats the HDD when directed to but then asks for Intel matrix Storage manager driver from drive A. It can not move from ... i have hp dv2701tu laptop

Another way of looking at it is : Install a Virtual PC in the Vista note book, install XP in the Virtual PC created and any other applications you need to operate in XP. that is what i have just done with my notebook. good luck

Windws XP does not support SATA hard drives(only IDE). U must download a driver, that im trying to find, for that HD.
Then make a cd with the driver, put a booteable cd into the driver, while starting the note, press F6, intall the driver and continue with the XP boot...

One of daughter's friends has a Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423.
The young lady is blind and has to use a screen reader to use a computer. Her current screen reader is not compatable with Vista and it was going to cost her $900 to upgrade just the screen reader software.
I used the instructions in this post and was able to downgrade the laptop without any issues and in the process made one young lady very happy as she did not have the funds to upgrade her screen reader software.
I would like to say thank you to plugin26 for a very helpful post.

It worked forme with some variations!!!!
I tried with the USB floppy and the SATA Driver, but windows does not start the file copy, so a used nlite to integrate the sata driver in the installation, after that windows installed, the shipset provided in the descriptive post by plugin26 (thank you!!!!!) did not work in my case and the modem driver either, so I used the driver in the toshiba web site provided in the post by misterioz (thank you too!!!).
You most pay attention to the wireless installation you must make the change sugested to the .inf file (plugin26's post thank you again), I did not tried the toshiba provided driver may be the change has not to be done with this one.

If you want you can keep vista and have xp, try this:
the only problem I found when I set my toshiba with xp is locating a ethernet controller diver, I had to use an external wireless adapter to connect to the internet then update the rest of the drivers. I have looked every where for ethernet drivers for toshiba......very difficult. Find out what type of adapter you have then search the web for it in a XP version and put it on a cd or usb device then install XP.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
