SOURCE: Can't access drive from My Computer

Sometimes an additional drive doesn't show up because there is no free letter, especially if you are on a network. From Disk Management (right click on My Computer, Manage) if you see your drive there, try assigning it a letter. Or disconnect other drives that are mapped. Typically an external device wants to be "next" after your hard drive (usually c:) and CD-ROM (usually d:)

SOURCE: installation win xp in toshiba sattelite

ok my friend its not that easy but its always possible

fisrt just to know why u r unable to install xp because u have the HARD DISK SATA

and windows xp wont detect it because there are no definitions for SATA HDD.

so what should we do to fix this problem, you will know that by following these steps:

at the begining you need a floppy disk and floppy disk drive (i know thats not available in the new laptops, so u might need to buy one).

ok now we will need to download the SATA definitions from here:
http://www.4shared.com/file/37736514/7da1991f/raid138.html
and save it in the floppy disk (dont forget to unzip the file first).

now lets start the windows installation process (as usual).
u before you get to load the windows file there will be a prompt (in the buttom of the screen) asking you (press F6 if u need to install a third party...........) now press F6 quickly.
you will have a new screen with three options (S= specify, enter= continue or F3= exit).
now lets press S.
you will have a prompt asking you to (insert the labeled disk manufacturer ................).
lets insert the floppy disk now. and press enter
and when its asking you to select definition, select RAID driver.
and when its asking you about windows logo testing press yes.
and after finishing the definition process it will detect the HDD.
now continue installing windows as usual

enjoy XP (i know its a long story but its worth it :)

sure let me know what happened with u and for any other problems plz let me know

cheers

Windows xp file integrity failed in desktop


Hello Srinivas.

youre pen-drive "MUST" be formatted with " FAT32 " data system.
win XP "can`t read the NTFS format of win7."
(means also HDD`s to connect them with USB)

this works also for DVD and BR - players if they wont read an USB device.

Greet`s

I cant install windows 7 on toshiba m400-s4032, its saying


It is possible that your model is supported for Windows 7, if it was manufactured before 2007. No models made prior to 2007 are supported.
If you look at this page of supported units, you will notice the Portege M400 has an asterisk beside it. Read the note at the bottom for those units so marked, your model would be one of those units.

Check out the bulletins on how to upgrade to Win7 here and see if your specific model is supported.

Wat 2 do if i ve inbuit windows 7 and want 2 install it,i ve alredy pirated version installed,i want deinstall pirated and install inbuit windows


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.

It sounds like the HDD controller may be bad.When you thought it was the OS having a problem it sounds like the controller was going out.Unless the HDD you were connecting to it was bad.

I have the same problem. I am having a sony vaio vgn-nr120e and my hard drive crashed. Please let me know the exact hdd to replace my sony vaio hdd. I am a novice in computers. I find somethings so...


I've replaced my Sony Vaio VGN_160 with a 120gb Seagate Momentus 7200rpm, 16mb cache 2.5" Sata drive. I would think all notebook SATA drives should be compatible. The 7200rpm drives cost the same as the 5400 and it only uses something like 5% more power. (I read that in a forum so I can really say if it's true.)
I did notice a performance boost from the faster and higher cache drive. It was enough to get my 4 year old Vaio another 12-18 months of life before I get a newer one. And you CAN install Windows 7 (x86 since my Vaio is a core duo and not 64bit compatible.) Yours should be able to take Win7 64, unless of course you like Vista.

Once you remove the stock drive from the drive cage, it's a matter of putting the new drive into the cage and then reinserting.
I would suggest you format the new drive before you replace it. I had the Vaio back together without formatting, and Win7 install DVD was not able to find the drive until I formatted it on my desktop. The Sata and power connector are standard so it was easy to do.

go to bios settings in the desktop motherboard, you can see an option that says SATA NATIVITY support... this option must be disabled inorder to recognize the new HDD from your desktop...
