Installing WIN XP SP2 in aToshiba Satellite A205-S7459 Vista original

Hi!
Just puchased a brand new Satellite A205-S7459 with a pre-installed Win Vista Home Premium. But I use some development tools (I'm a hardware engineer) that come to be incompatible with Windows Vista (after installed, the application probably conficted with the WI-FI and CD drive drivers in such a way that I had to use the recover disk to get the machine operational again).
So I decided to go back to the old and good (almost) XP SP2.
But the XP installer simply does not recognize the SATA hardware, insists that the PC has no HD to install Windows in.
Thanks a lot for any help.

    Thanks a lot for your reply, but unfortunately I could not find the drivers on Toshiba's site that could solve my problem.

    What I have found in other forums was a lot of other users with similar problem and nobody seems to know the solution.

    I'm quite frustrated with this brand new computer in wich I cannot install the OS of my preference. I have bought a legal copy of XP PRO for this notebook, and this makes me feel even more frustrated (or stupid)...

    Seems that Toshiba and Microsoft have made some sort of agreement to IMPOSE the Vista OS !! If it was so good, this would not be necessary... users would naturally migrate to Vista!

    MY POBLEM STILL REMAINS...

    ANY HELP IS WELCOME!!! THANKS A LOT!!!

    Found a solution!!

    Follow this link:

    http://www.tamalecart.com/toshibaA200/

    The PDF link is the key, it has a complete dummy-proof script.

    The idea is to create a CD from your original XP SP2 including the SATA drivers, with the application NLITEOS.

    Worked just fine!

    Hope this can help other users forced to use the VISTA against their will...

    Enjoy!

    PS: thanks to my friend GUGA that was the one who digged this guide from de Web.

You need to go at www.Toshiba.com and get a special driver. You need to check under support and drivers for your model.

What you do is you get the driver (depends if you a floppy otherwise burn the drive on a cd)


From Bios make the computer boot the computer from CD/DVD rom and then you need to pay attention when on the bottom of the screen it will say hit f6 if you have to install the special driver and then you can continue installation of windows.

Was it all working OK before you upgraded from VISTA? If yes this sounds like a driver problem. Visit the cannon site and download their latest drivers for Win 7 - that is if there are any yet. As an early adoptor of Win 7 you can expect to have issues with hardware drivers where manufacturers have not yet developed them for Win 7. Once Win 7 has been out and about for 12 to 18 months most manufactures will have caught up and issued new drivers.

Installing WIN XP SP2 in aToshiba Satellite A205-S7459 Vista original


Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd

simple solution: get WINDOWS XP CD with SP3 it contains support for sata drives

Workable Solution:

this specific model of Toshiba was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

SATA DRIVER FROM:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/license_agr.aspx?url=/17268/eng/iata87enu.exe&ProductID=2800&agr=Y&sType=&PrdMap=&DwnldId=17268&strOSs=45&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Home%20Edition&lang=eng

http://www.nliteos.com/

just download sata drivers from intel and nlite from the link and install the software integrate these drivers and burn ur cd incl them and then install normally as u were installing them earlier now it will recognize ur drive simple for more info how to do check this out

http://lifehacker.com/386526/slipstream-service-pack-3-into-your-windows-xp-installation-cd

after windows XP installation u will have one more task to find drivers for ur notebooks with XP support but it is the next step if ur some hardware like modem / sound/ doesnt work then i can help more

pls let me know if i can help u more
and rate me FIXYA if i have fixed ur problem
