I had the same problem to make dual boot on a vista loaded laptop with XP. I use nlight to splitstream the RAD and it was successfull.

  • Try this link, there is a very nice article regarding this problem with pictures.
  • You can also try bootdisk to make a bootable CD then start with this CD and try to run your setup. Click here for bootdisk
Please post your feedback.
Thanks

Downgrading a SatelliteA205-S5804 To XP Pro


Well, It looks like you might be approaching the problem from a driver side. Try approaching from the BIOS side. If possible, enter the BIOS and set your notebook's SATA setting to "ATA" or "Legacy" (especially if you are not doing any complex raid functions on the notebook). ATA or Legacy will allow easy access to the drive by making windows think its an old fashioned EIDE drive, and windows will have native drivers for it already. Good Luck :)

Downgrade to Windows XP.


Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.

To change os from vista to XP


Hi there,
I hate Vista from my guts! I installed XP SP3 (Slipstreamed) and my Toshiba Portege R500 Flies!
I have posted some notes on similar issue from this forum. Use this website's search engine on "Toshiba R500" and you should be able to fine my posts.
My current job involes rebuilding laptops and desktops so many times that I created this automated slipstreamed XP SP3 CD and I had no issues of Harddrive not being found after all the waiting.
