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

Displays no hard drive found wen installing win xp


You have to go to BIOS setup, find HDD setup, and change the value to the other one (there are only two possibilities). That will fix your problem. The problem is caused by the fact that the lap top was designed for vista, not XP. and the lap top contains SATA HDD. when installing XP pre-installation doesn't have SATA drivers, so your OS can not see the HDD. Change it in BIOS, and you trouble is gone

Toshiaba Sattelite laptop model L45-S7409 dont let installed Xp


well, this should be fun! your toshiba (i have an older one-m35x- came with xp home). i'm sure yours came with a restore disk with vista on it, so that's no use to you, considering the circumstances. i have several friends that gave up on vista, and changed back to xp!
sort of the windows me2000 for the later part of the first decade of the 21st century!
1st you need to back up any important files to an external hdd, large capacity thumb-drive, optical drive (cd or dvd). then find my computer- should be on desk-top, right click on your hdd and click on 'format hard-drive'. choose 'fast format' and ntfs. if you want partitions- choose # and size. i assume your hdd has a large capacity, but unless you want to install another OS (Linux), or use another partition to back-up your main partition, then don't bother.
format your hdd, and then install xp.this is gonna' take some time! i assume you have a legal version of xp. if not, turn off auto windows updates, or they'll give you some grief! the firewall should be alright.
once you get everything working- as far as xp is concerned (reinstall wireless connectivity, etc.), put in your device with backups from vista, and hope xp will accept them! make sure you saved your contacts list, and favorites from whatever browser you were using on vista- i prefer mozilla firefox, myself! hell with ie!
good luck!

I cant instal windows xp on toshiba sattelite a 205


There are two ways to it; you can disable SATA mode from your BIOS Setup if it supports it and secondly, you would have to slip-stream sata drivers for your toshiba with a Windows XP2 Using nLite software. Google nLite and download the software

Windows os


Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Laptop does not open windows


Boot to the WIndows XP CD, and at the first prompt, press R to enter Recovery Console. Once at the C: prompt, type CHKDSK /R and let the run, once finished, reboot and see if the system will boot.

If it still is in a reboot loop, or if CHKDSK reports unrecoverable errors, then you may have a hdd problem, run HDD diagnostics and see if you get a failure code.

If diags pass, try repairing the installation with the XP CD (Odds are fair to poor at fixing issue) if that fails try a clean install of XP (Sometimes that is the only resolution)

If the HDD fails diags or if all the above fails, replace the hard drive

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


you have to use a standard windows start up disk with cd rom support like win 98 works well so the computer will recognize a older version then insert it and boot the computer with the operating system that u want to install but be advised if you have a warranty on the machine you will void the waranty i found out the hard way i had xp on my toshiba laptop and i put windows me on it couple of months later i had a cd rom issue and sent it to the manufacture and found out that the waranty was voided because i put a different operating system on the machine
