It is not recommended because everything that is Vista Compatable, isn't XP compatable. However, if you are sure that you want to remove Vista, look up UBCD and download it to an ISO. Then enable boot from CDROM first. Within that CD will give you options of removing an operating system what-so-ever by the use of A Hard Disk "WIPING"(formatting) tool. Good Luck

Cannot see HD in toshiba satalitte l40170 in booting


In some markets the L40-170 is sold without an Operating System.

I assume this is in booting off a Windows XP CD, as Vista, Win7 and Linux (Ubuntu) will recognise the HD on boot.

The L40-170 has a SATA-Hard drive with no compatible mode. WinXP will not natively recognize it.

You need to download the SATA driver from Toshiba-Europe and either:

a)Place it on a USB floppy disk and install it when the Windows installer prompts for external drivers. (This is unlikely to work unless you have a Toshiba branded device)

b) Integrate the sata drivers into a windows installation using software like nLite. (You might as well integrate all the L40-170 drivers and the XP service packs at the same time.)

Caution: Don't use software to extract the drivers off a working machine, the drivers required for windows installer are different from those required by the OS. Rather download them from Toshiba.

Toshiba L40-A510


There are a lot of things that do not work on Vista that do work on XP. For that reason some of my client's have asked me to re-install XP so they would not have to upgrade their hardware and software programs. You could have the same problem.
