The problem is that while installing XP it does not recognize the Hard Drive ... BIOS does not have the option to disable the SATA drive and hence cant start with the process... If some body can help me in this regards??

Seeing that this computer was designed for Windows Vista, this might be tricky on the drivers part.

1) back-up all documents an important stuff
2) restart your computer with the XP disk in it
3) there should be a screen with text that says: press any key to continue.
4) follow all of the on screen instructions.

Downgrade to Windows XP.


Due to the fact of the many people that wish to downgrade to Windows XP, many computer distribution companies keep current driver software that is compatible with the various Windows OSes. I checked the Toshiba website for drivers for the Satallite A205-S5809 and they have drivers for WIndows XP, XP SP2/SP3, Vista 32-bit, and Vista 64-bit. They have all the drivers you should need to make the changeover. I hope this helps.
