Can't install XP on Toshiba Satellite 2410-S185

Hello,

I've been trying to do a clean installation on my toshiba laptop and I formatted the hard drive using the windows 98 start up disk since the DVD-ROM drive was not working.

Now I tried to use an external DVD-ROM drive but the USB option is not listed on the boot priority in the BIOS, even though I select CDROM > FDD as the boot sequence but still doesn't work.

I hope you can give me some advise,

Thanks,

Cury

Try using a CD-ROM, since the drivers for the DVD_ROM are not present.

You have to format your hard disc.
Place your purchased verion of Win7 into the DVD drive. Power up the laptop and boot from the DVD.
In the menu, select "Install fresh System" and let it format the drive.
That will sort out your problem.

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

But if bios does not see this HD it it's also mean that is dead.

It happened to me a while ago when installing XP SP2 into the 2410 laptop then found the display was reduced on the rightside.
So, I search on the internet and found :

Toshiba Management Console V3.5.2 for Windows XP SP2
