    A couple of questions first. How much memory do you have on the computer? What type of processor does it have? How big of a Hard Drvie? Do you know if it has USB 1.0 or 2.0?

Hi,

Unfortunately, your machine will not boot from a USB drive.

You can only use a Toshiba drive connected to the port replicator or with a Toshiba PCMCIA CD Drive.

Hi there!

You can look for removable device, this is equivalent to USB.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Windows will not start with a Toshiba external hard drive plugged into USB


Computer starts normally in windows with a windows that is installed on a hard disk on that copmuter. In other words - windows is installed on an internal hard disk of a computer A. If you get it out and put in a computer B it wont work.

To have the things work:
1. First should set in BIOS boot up options first boot device CD/DVD, second OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, third HDD
2. Should boot up from a CD and install windows on an external hard disk (in your case your 3TB Toshiba external HD)
3. Set in BIOS boot up options first boot device OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, second internal hard disk e.g. HDD0, HDD1

HOW DO i CLEAN INSTALL WINDOWS 7 32 WITH HARD DRIVE CONTROLLER


Boot with Win 7 disc instead of installing from Windows. Or do you mean USB device? Same thing but you need something like Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool from Microsoft. BIOS boot menu should also reflect media format. USB or CD-Rom / DVD.

What's your probleIM trying to install windows after putting in a new hard drive and I keep getting error 10e7160017


If this is a blue screen error and it do not let you to install the operation system ..but only loads a few files ..it means that you have let the hard disk set by default ..in BIOS and it is on sata bus..and needs to install the ahci driver ...If you have its original driver disk ..and you have a bootable disk with the operation system ..try to see if it takes the driver from a memory stick ...Just run the installation from the boot-able disk ..and press f 6 when it asks for 3rd party driver ..if you installing windows XP ..or ..when you get to the first screen on windows 7 ..choose to load driver and browse for the ahci driver on the usb stick ..if it can be found..or load it into a partition instead..or a external floppy disk ..Or ..make a boot-able memory stick .and load windows from it ..and use the original disk with drivers to load the ahci driver ..
In case non of these will work ..just go to bios settings first ..and under the hard disk 0 ..select to disable the ahci mode...and select ide compatible ..or ide default ..or plain ide...anyway ..just not ahci ....and the hard disk will be seen and will let you to install the operation system ..
If you are trying to install from a recovery disk ..it may not work ..cause will not recognize the hard disk and may need to use files usually stored in the reserved partition of windows..so ..best to try install from a boot-able disk or boot-able usb device ..and after that load all drivers and programs ..including antivirus..
remember to get the lan driver in handy ..cause without it you will not be able to connect top the internet and finish the drivers and programs installing ..
let me know if you solved the problem and please rate my answer if it's helpful ..have a nice day !

Hello,

The motherboard has 128 MB memory (soldered on board). However there is still empty slot for further upgrade. You can install another 128 MB PC100 SDRAM memory to get maximum of 256 MB.

A PCMCIA CD drive will work, but only some models. Toshiba makes one, and it would be your best bet.
