If you are using the original XP Recovery Disk for Toshiba, you have to set your first boot to CD/DVD Rom from our Bios setting or use the 1st boot Function Utility when booting up.

If your 1st boot is your CD/DVD Rom, the Recovery Disk will boot up, and your just follow the wizard to finish the OS installation back go the default setting.

Hope it helps.

I want to reinstall my Y computer but the restore CD does not seem to work. So i tried a new XP cd, but that too could not work as it does not see the SATA hard disk installed. The Bios on the Tecra M9...


Hi, your Windows XP install CD doesn't have SATA drivers for the hard drive included, so it's not able to address your hard drive. You can't disable SATA in the BIOS to make it work since your hard drive is still SATA. You'll need to get a 3.5" floppy disk and drive if your laptop doesn't have one. They make external 3.5" USB floppy drives that will work.

1. download the SATA drivers for your laptop (iastor.sys and inf)
2. copy the drivers to your floppy disk (about 6-7 files)
3. plug the floppy drive into your laptop
4. boot to the Windows XP CD
5. as soon as the installation starts, it asks you to "Press F6 to specify RAID or controller drivers" - Press F6 now
6. When setup asks for it, point it to the floppy drive
7. Installation will continue and find your SATA hard drive

Ta-da! Rock on with your bad self.

Replaced hard drive in Toshiba Tecra M9. Laptop.now refuses to re


Look on the back edge of your old HDD where all the gold pins are and on one side there is a group of 4 pins in two rows of two... and see if there is a tiny jumper installed across two of them (white or black about 1/8" tall and 1/16th wide).

Now look on the new HDD and see if there is one there. The NEW HDD must be set up exactly like the OLD one or it won't be detected by BIOS or Windows.

I am beginning to think your LT has the CD as MASTER and the HDD as SLAVE, which may require adding or removing a jumper. Some new ones come with, some without ;-) I didn't think of this earlier

Check that. Email me the result
