Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook
The thing is that windows xp ..usually does not have the drivers for teh acpi or achi mode and you need to get into bios and disable teh mode and let the hard disk to run in IDE compatible or sata as ide..
the function can be disabled in the same screen where teh hard disk and other sata and ide devices are presented..
After you disable the achi mode..it will work ..remember that you have to save changes with F10 before exit bios..
another way to make this work ..is install the windows xp in this mode..after you are done ..just install all drivers for it ..including raid and ahci drivers..and change it back from bios..It may work ..if it sees the drivers..
or ..you need to install the drivers when you get to teh press F6 to install 3rd party drivers....and you have to find a way to get them ...cause this operation is done usually b yusing a floppy diskette so ..to have a chance to do it .. you need to try to install them from a usb or install windows from usb and use the disk with drivers in the optical drive ..
If I would be in your place I would not complicate myself and just go to bios and change the bus mode for the hard disk ..save changes and reinstall operation system if needed..or go on from where it was..It will see the hard disk and no longer give you the blue screen
