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.

Hi I have a Toshiba Tecra M2 laptop with Windows XP Pro SP3. My CD-RW/DVD-ROM/CD-ROM drive is not working. When I try to burn a disc, it says no recorder, or no disc in drive. Also, Windows doesn't seem to...

>> it says IDE #1 error when it boots up.

IDE #0 is your disk-drive.
IDE #1 is your CD/DVD drive.

So, take your computer to a qualified technician, to first check that the connectors (power, data) from the motherboard to the CD/DVD drive are good, and then, if necessary, to remove & replace the "dead" drive.

You can download any/all the Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers. Use this link :-.

CD-RW/DVD-ROM can not read and CD or DVD's most likely kaput. I have a tecra, and I'm on my second CD/DVD replacement. They are easy to find and replace(one screw underneath, and just slide em out)..
