BSOD occurs when I try to install Windows XP Home on the Satellite A100-VA5

I got a brand new Toshiba A100 - VA5 Notebook, here in Toronto in the Canada.

Laptop came with Vista. I don't have a problem with vista, but there are some software that I need for my work and they do not work on Vista.
I decided to install Windows on a partition, but when I run the XP installation CD, it errors on a blue screen with the error below

The Blue error screen I get when installing WXP stop is

Stop: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0XF76450BF, 0XF7A91208, 0XF7A90F080)

I searched on Internet forums, some people have had similar problems on a computer no-Toshiba with XP and the problem was caused because the XP installation CD does not have S - ATA Raid Controller drivers? Which after pressing F6 at the start-up of the plant, solved the problem.

However, I was unable to find the drivers for the controller S - ATA Raid on Toshiba support site, and I don't know where to find them. Someone knows something like that and it is due to S - ATA Raid Controller drivers? And if the answer is Yes, where can I find them since?

Thank you




Everything you need you can find on Toshiba Canada support page
When you choose your part number do not forget, you use PSAANC-VA505C number (check also on the laptop label in the lower corner of your laptop).

Now, back to the blue screen. As far as I know for this model of laptop is not necessary to install the S - ATA Raid Controller at the beginning of the procedure of the facilities. For laptops with RAID driver this driver is available on the download page. This driver is not available for your laptop model.

    Hmm I think the BSOD appears because you didn t add SATA drivers in the Win XP operating system.

    However, you can try to install Win XP on your laptop without the use of the SATA driver, but you can change the SATA AHCI in the BIOS in compatible mode.

  • Cannot install Windows XP Pro on the Satellite A100-411


    IA´ve you have a question. I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-411 with Windows Vista Home Premium. Because of the performance that would have me much better with Windows XP, I tried to install Windows Xp on a second partition, but on the same hard drive.

    The problem is that it did not work, I put the Windows XP cd in my DVD player, did a restart and started from the cd.
    The first window Windows Xp installation opened and checked my system, but when he did and
    wantet to start the main installation, I got a blue screen, where stood her system was closed due to an error and that I should change my video card, or should I turn caching and shadowing in my Bios.

    But my video card really works and is ok and I can't find the caching and shadowing in bios, so I can't install windows xp.

    So my question is is it possible to install Windows XP on the A100-411 when Vista is installed on the other Partition.

    I did something wrong or isn´t is it possible to install Windows Xp after Windows Vista on an A100-411
    Sorry for my bad English and greetings from the Germany


    Of course, it should be possible to install Windows XP on the second partition.
    First you must create the partition. Vista provide a clean option for partitions of creation because the 3rd party applications such as Partitions magic doesn't work under Vista. In disk management you can reduce the size of a partition of first and could create a second partition on the HARD disk free space.

    All your Windows XP CD contain service packs? I myself remember more old CD s WinXP don't were not delivered with SP2! In such cases, it s a good idea to create a clean XP Boot CD using 3rd application called nLite. Its freeware and you could find on the net!
