I install XP to Portege M200 computers by the following method
Upgrade bios from a USB floppy (get upgrade file from Toshiba online)
after upgrade the computer can boot from the CD drive and install XP. The upgrade goes very slowly for the first half of the install but is installs properly.

At wht stage of the installation do you get the blue screen. Did you try installing from a different cd. Later during the installation you might have to log on to BIOS and there will be an option called disable SATA , you will have to disable it in case your laptop was shipped with Vista or else your hard disks will not get detected.

You will need a Vista disc to format the drive or try using the XP disc to format before you install. You may have bios and processor recognition problems running XP where a notebook is set up to run Vista

Change the HDD to compatibility mode... or get the intel matrix driver and use the f6floppy directory and readme to install the driver by pressing f6 at xp startup. You will need an external floppy disk tho.
