    I don't think that you can install Windows 7 with Boot Camp on El Capitan:

    • A Microsoft Windows installation media or disc image (ISO) containing a 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows 8 or later *.

    From: How to install Windows using Boot Camp - Apple Support.

    Windows 10 is simply too new for your Mac, and Windows 7 is too old. It is quite a difficult situation. If you really need Windows, you would need to get a copy of Windows 8, or put to level to an earlier version of Mac OS X with a version of Boot Camp that works in Windows 7.

    Hello John

    It is not easy to understand the whole situation, especially the part with the virus.
    In my opinion, Windows XP Home edition installation should not be problematic.

    What you need is Windows XP Home SP2 or SP3 and driver SATA edition disc. Without SATA driver disk HARD will be not visible to Windows XP Home edition.

  • Satellite A210-15Y - how to install Windows XP?

    I had Windows Vista and I improve it with Windows 7. Now, I really want to install Windows XP.
    When I put the Windows XP CD in after awhile I get a blue screen whit an error.

    pls tell how to install Windows XP on my laptop and if I need some drivers do pls put links of whereIi can get them.

    PS Sorry for the bad English


    I think the problem is that you tried to install Win XP without installation of the SATA driver.
    The A210 need driver SATA to recognize the HARD drive.

    You can also check the BIOS settings. There should be an option called SATA mode.
    This can be set between AHCI and compatible and this will allows you to install the Win XP without the first installation of SATA drivers.

    Also check the other threads here in the forum on the same topic!

    PS: It is advisable to use Win XP including SP3! You can include the SP3 using nLite software!

  • Re: Portégé R700 - how to install Windows 7 on new SSD?


    I want to change my HDD in Toshiba Portege R700 to SSD. How to install Windows 7 on this new SSD? I don't have any Windows installation disc.

    Or that it will be possible to move the partition of the old HDD to new SSD (using Acronis, I could move the partition on the new HARD drive)?

    I've heard of partition offset and this SSD block should be the same as FAT cluster (the same alignment).

    All advice? (I know should I defragment my HARD drive before moving :))

    Hey Buddy,

    > I do not have any Windows installation disc.
    Create the Toshiba recovery disc as mentioned in the manual of the user before you exchange the disc, then you have a Setup disk. The Toshiba recovery disc will restore parameters of the box with all the drivers and tools. It can be used on each disc and how many times you want.

    After this change the drive and start the Toshiba recovery disc. Follow the instructions on the screen and everything will be installed.

    Check this box!

  • NB100 - how to install Windows 7 without CD player

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone knows how to install Windows 7 Pentecost on a CD player.

    I have an external HARD drive.
    Is - this posibel to make an image on this one to boot from?

    Hmm, I think that's not possible.
    I know that it was possible to install Win XP without the disc.
    You simply copied the folder integer i386 to the HARD disk and executed to the Winnt. EXE

    I have no experience with Win 7 but I also didn t find details that something like that would not be possible so I guess that's not possible

  • Satellite A505-S6922 - how to install Windows 7 drivers?

    I have an A505-S6992 and I try to do a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate. I created the recovery with drivers and applications disc. In what order should I install and how to install Windows 7 ultimate?

    I tried to install by going just to the bottom of the list of applications/drivers, but has encountered an error.

    I think that the order of the facilities must be similar or even the same as on Vista.
    After the clean install of Win7 continue with:
    Robson driver
    Display driver
    Audio driver
    Touch Pad Driver
    Card reader
    TOSHIBA software modem
    Wireless LAN driver
    Chicony camera software
    Bluetooth stack
    Port driver
    TOSHIBA Value Added Package
    TOSHIBA hardware configuration utility
    TOSHIBA supervisor password
    TOSHIBA Flash Cards Support utility
    TOSHIBA SD Memory utilities
    AuthenTec fingerprint utility
    TOSHBA face recognition
    TOSHIBA ConfigFree
    TOSHIBA WPS library
    TOSHIBA Assist
    TOSHIBA Speech System
    CD/DVD Drive Acoustic Silencer
    TOSHIBA TRS driver
    HDMI Control Manager
    Of course, it is order facilities Vista and maybe you won't find listed some stuff on the page to download, but at least you can see how it should be installed.
    Next week, I'll get my new Satellite A500 and I'll test the Win7 installation.

  • How to install Windows XP Home on my Satellite L500-1ZP?

    I formatted my Satellite L500-1ZP (PSLS9E) and thought DLI install win xp instead of win7 (do not have the disk/partition backup)
    now, when I start it with the cd of windows XP blue screen 'windows setup' inside start but when its finished loading, it gives me an error code:
    ' * STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF78DA63C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).

    I read somewhere that I need to download SATA drivers for my laptop and do a disc to install windows xp with the SATA drivers on it?

    I tried to get these drivers, but I don't know that I have need and how to do the installation disc
    I copy my original windows XP Home cd and put the drivers in a folder somewhere on the disk?

    I hope someone can resolve my problem because the laptop is just over a year, and I don't really want to buy a new...

    I just hope that you created the recovery DVDs until you started to install own OS. After clean operating system installation you not longer have access to data recovery.

    You are right. For the installation of Windows XP Home edition, you need SATA driver. How to install Windows XP Home edition on the new laptop models that you can read on

    In the end, I must say that your last sentence is pretty confusing to me. You bought the laptop designed for Win7 and you want to use the old WXP on this. Do you really think you need to buy the new laptop if you want to install Windows XP Home edition?

  • Re: How to install Windows XP Home on a Satellite L40 - 17R

    I bought a laptop Satellite L40 - 17r without Windows installed and the store didn t give me all the drivers also.
    When I check your "how to install windows XP on a L40.pdf. It says to download the driver package that I can't find on your website.

    I have a Windows XP Home genuine SP2, but I can t install as WXP does ' t find the hard drive.
    I'd be the appropriate driver package to install Windows XP on my laptop.

    If I have an external floppy drive can't, I used a USB drive external hard also add the necessary drivers so that Windows XP can see my hard drive (160 GB HARD DRIVE (5400 RPM) SATA).

    Thanks for your response

    Hello Xavier

    I think installing WXP on L40 laptop is most asked in recent months. I recommend to check this forum category and you will find answer to your question. If you have no floppy, it shouldn't be a problem at all. Solution is Nlite software.

    Use as search terms in the advanced search option and you will find so many threads with exact explanation on its use.

    If you still have any questions please post again.

  • I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.

    I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.   I had to replace the hard drive, so he has nothing about it and I added more ram, but I replace the cd player so it is not yet installed on the HP.   So I was wondering if I could put the installation disc in my laptop cd/dvd and connect computers by usb ports and install it this way and if not how can I?

    Thank you


    You are welcome

    If the CD/DVD drive in the works of PC Gateway, you can (at least temporarily) remove it and install it in the HP, you can run your recovery disc and reinstall Vista.  Once everything is running on the HP, you can always remove the CD/DVD drive and reinstall it in the gateway PC if you wish.

    Kind regards
