Question about Toshiba Satellite L515S4960 Notebook
Please note before I continue on that XP can not always be placed onto a system that had Vista as some drivers and hardware will refuse to work.
You may be having an issue w/ the boot manager.
I would suggest running the windows xp recovery console this will give you a dos like screen. Once there you can do a lot w/ the system I would suggest trying to rebuild the bootmanager.
If none of this works. You should try a full not a quick format off the install screens or you can run a win98 boot disk and access the partition and format commands.
Please post your findings in as great of detail as possible.
I believe at this time the bootmanager may be confused as to if its dealing w/ visita or if its dealing w/ xp. The boot manager uses a part of the harddrive outside of normal storage to control parts of the OS loading procedures.
