I would lick ti instal xp on my set toshiba tecra a2-s316 but i dont know how to boot my system by bootable cd


When booting you laptop notice the Toshiba scree. As that screen displays with the option F2 or F10. With your XP cd in the DVD/CD drive choose F10 and set your boot device to DVD/CD.
And follow the onscreen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Replaced Toshiba HDD but won't boot from recovery CD


Put the disk in the drive and restart the machine, when the toshiba logo appears press F12 and use the cursor key to select CD/DVD and hit enter.
See if it lets you boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Please keep me informed and good luck.

If you have you primary HDD set on Cable select, and the secondary HDD is set on anything other then Cable select (with the jumper settings on the back of the HDD) then there will be an error.. Also, if you primary is set to master/slave and the same for the secondary, it will cause problems.

Another thought, if one of your drives is SATA and the other IDE, if the IDE is set to master, there may be an issue as SATA HDD's will try to post as the master drive
