Installation of Windows XP on Satellite Pro P200

Hi guys,.

I have a problem installing Windows XP Home SP2 (listen Slip) edition in my new Satellite Pro P200 with 2-120 GB hard drives. The vehicle currently has windows vista professional. I followed this link to a similar question on this site: FullName = Windows * + XP + Professional & lang = eng & strOSs = 44 & submit = Go % 21 and created disk Intel Matrix Storage manager so that I could use "F6" to install the RAID drivers during the installation of XP.

I got to the point where I was able to recognize the hard drive and I was able to select the partition where I wanted to install WXP. Once the NTFS partition has been selected and formatted, Windows XP Home edition Setup prompted me to insert "Intel Matrix Storage" diskette into the A: drive. I have this drive in my floppy USB drive.

However he didn't even read the disc. Hard drive never turned on when I pressed the enter"" key. It seemed as if the installer froze, however I was able to push "F3" to exit the installation program. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Is the USB problem?

Help, please!

I really put t understand those who wait and wait and wait for a solution instead of search here in this beautiful (forum) knowledge base for similar topics:

    Toshiba Satellite A200/S01 PSAF6A-06S01N
    I need help to determine which driver I need to install to control the SATA hard drive.

    Because many know that the SATA drives will not work when installing Windows XP, Windows XP does not have drivers for this type of hard drive.

    I have located on drivers site Web for hard disk for a toshiba XP machine, but I am unable to determine which driver to install (list of 15 when I load floppy)? or it doesn't work because the machine was installed with vista?

    Is it possible to match a HDD to the pilot?

    I formatted the hard drive, xp installation disc is xp pro with Service Pack 2.

    I hope someone could help me because it makes me crazy ready to give up and reinstall vista on the machine


    The SATA drivers are part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    There are a lot of discussions on this subject.

    I found these two Toshiba HowTo that describes step by step how to do:

    + How to integrate the AHCI driver during the installation of Windows XP.

    + How to integrate a SATA AHCI driver into a Windows XP Setup CD.

    Seems the Satellite A200/S01 PSAF6A-06S01N belongs to the Australian series of Toshiba.
    Drivers of this laptop are on the Toshiba on THE page but you can also download the Storage Manager Intel from the page of the European driver Toshiba or Intel page because the hardware is the same.

  • Installation of Windows XP on Satellite Pro L300D-136


    I realize that this question is very similar to those posed elsewhere on these forums. I tried after the solutions proposed elsewhere but were unable to do anything at work.

    I'm trying to install XP Pro on a Satellite Pro L300D 136, which is currently under Vista.

    I tried to get into the BIOS and change SATA compatibility mode, but I still get a blue screen of death when booting from the installation disc. Reading elsewhere on the forums, that I understand that I have to use nlite to include drivers SATA on the installation CD, I'm not sure how to find out what drivers I need. Number of threads talking about MSM from Intel, but my machine has an AMD Athlon processor. Does make a difference? Where can I find the necessary drivers in the download section of Toshiba?

    Thank you in advance for your help, this is the first time I tried to replace a windows with another OS...

    Yes, it makes a difference.

    For laptops equipped with AMD processor (they don t have an Intel chipset) you need the display driver.
    In the display driver package are the SATA drivers you need.
    You can find it on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    Hi all!

    My problem is with a Satellite Pro L20.

    My hard drive broke so I replaced it. Now, when I try and install windows xp pro on the new hard drive, it does nothing. First of all, I put the disk it starts to load and say to support on enter to launch xp installation, R to repair windows or F2 to exit but when I press ENTER, nothing happens if I press R, it starts to look for windows in order to repair, but no windows system cannot be found because it s not been installed but know someone or have any good suggestions on how to get windows installed.

    Any information would be most appreciated.

    I could also just add that when the computer starts first and it s on the first boot of the bit with the Toshiba logo we have 2 options F2 and F12, none of them work when I press them and also when I pressed r in the window xp installation you should be able to type exit, and then enter to leave but some type of keys and some don't but be4 just broken hard drive it typed very well no problem, if it is the problem cos I can't press on enter how fist to solve the problem of keyboard?

    Thank you once more for the reading of my problem.

  • Question about the installation of Win XP on Satellite Pro P200


    I have a lot of problems with Vista. First it took me a week to install my printer WiFi. (sollution: install local lpt1 as the printer, change port properties en gives a location network (computer/printername).)
    Last problem: vista give no right to copy my USB hd protable with xp files.

    Finally, I lost all hope and want to go back to xp.

    Is there anyone with experience in the installation of win xp on this laptop. And is it possible to tell me the steps that you have been taken to do so.
    Are there concerns as none have some drivers, things that do not work or problems with sata hd.

    Thank you



    It's a difficult topic-> XP on Vista machines.

    First: Yes, you can install XP on it because all the important factors are available (VGA, SATA, wireless, XP BIOS, BLUETOOTH) and that should be enough.

    Because your computer has a BIOS for Vista (I guess there a) Please install the BIOS XP first and then start the installation of XP. In the case that your HARD drive is not recognized then you need to install the SATA driver during the installation of windows XP. The procedure is described in the statement of the Satellite L40-> XP installation, so if you want to install and problems SATA (HDD, not during the XP installation), you must check the installation instructions for Windows XP for a SATELLITE L40!

    If you have additional questions, I recommend allows you to place your question here before doing something that may stop your nerves later. :)

  • Installation of Windows ME on Satellite Pro L20

    I need for the program to install windows Millennium Edition on my new laptop, but when he starts (during the installation procedure) search for devices it crushes and just stop.
    What can I do? I tried to update the BIOS but still the same after.

    I really put t know what you can do, but I really don t understand why you buy the laptop latest designed to the latest operating system available on the market and then try to use the older operating system. I hope you know that there is no support for older OS.

    In my opinion, much better and cheaper option is to buy second hand laptop and install the earlier operating system. With more Ram, the older unit will run fantastic.

    The second problem are the drivers and Toshiba tools that work well with me. Where you find them? You won't find them on the official download page of Toshiba.

    In any case, good luck and I hope that someone already try to install ME on the same unit.

    Good bye

  • Installation of Windows XP does not see on Satellite Pro P200 HARD drive

    The problem is the windows installation sayis qhen that there is no hard drive detected.

    The laptop has two HD 200 GB each.

    Can someone help me?

    You must first install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager before you continue the installation of XP.
    It s a same as RAID driver installation procedure
    You need to press F6 during installation to include the necessary files of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager

    I found this on the page of Intel: FullName = Windows * + XP + Professional & lang = eng & strOSs = 44 & submit = Go %21

  • Satellite Pro P200 - 17 c: Win XP won't load - installation of the SATA driver


    I have a satellite pro p200 - 17 c I've had good years, allways worked without any problem.

    Last week when I booted the laptop, windows won't load and I find myself safe mode selection screen. No options whatsoever me to windows loading, I tried F8 and still nothing.

    I tried the restore cd that reimagee the drive but I get the same thing, I tried a new hard drive, once again the same.

    But if I try to load windows from an OEM to install that software does not because it is a sata drive and there is no floppy drive. I have an external floppy drive I use, but it is not known now.

    Any ideas or suggestions?


    Go to BIOS and set it to default settings.

    In this case the SATA mode must be on AHCI. In this case the SATA drivers are required to install the Windows operating system. But as much as I know that Windows 7 already contains the SATA drivers if usually you don t had to add SATA drivers while OS installation the installation program.

    However, here is a nice HowTo document that helps you add SATA drivers for Win XP installation disc.

    + How to integrate a SATA AHCI driver into a Windows XP Setup CD.

    + How to integrate the AHCI driver during the installation of Windows XP.

  • Can I downgrade my Satellite Pro P200 for Windows XP?


    I bought my Satellite Pro P200 (PSPB7E) a week ago and I love it. I have an unused XP license, so I would like to downgrade.

    Is this problem? I don't see xp for a Chicony webcam drivers or the HD-DVD player.
    I'd really appreciate some feedback. There must be someone out there who has tried to do.

    Thank you in advance!


    Of course you can downgrade the satellite Pro P200 for Windows XP.

    When installing XP, you need to install the Intel Storage Manager. It is a SATA driver that is needed to activate the HARD disk.

    Regarding the webcam driver.
    I checked the page European driver of Toshiba and the Chicony webcam driver is certainly available.

    The HD DVD driver is not necessary because the Windows XP must use an own ODD driver.

    See you soon

  • No sound in Satellite Pro P200 with XP

    Hi all.

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro P200 with Windows Vista preinstalled. I removed Vista and installed Windows XP with Service Pack 2, due to the incompabilités with some software I need. Almost all of the necessary drivers for XP (even a downgrade to BIOS) was downloaded and installed from Support from Toshiba web page. But there are still two devices that I can not install. At the start of my laptop it always detect "* Microsoft UAA bus driver for high definition audio *" and "* controller memory PCI - Chip for logical Cache Flash in Intel (r) *" as new hardware and they appear marked in yellow in the Device Manager list.

    I installed the last bus Microsoft UAA for high definition audio driver for XP from Toshiba and Realtek too... a lot of time and in different ways... Previously I installed the High Definition Audio Driver Package - KB888111 from Microsoft. But I still have no sound.

    PCI memory controller - Intel(r) Flash Cache Logic Chip: the same... tried the drivers the most recent Toshiba one Intel too. Toshiba technical support told me that this unit is ready to run on Vista and have suggested me to try with Robson drivers for Vista Support from Toshiba's web page, but that didn't work either.

    I googled a lot, searched this forum and called technical support, as I said, but I've not found a way to solve these problems. Really, I can't believe I bought a laptop that only works with Windows Vista, I resist assume this idea, so I continue to try and try to make it work properly with the operating system that I need and I have chosen freely.

    Any idea?

    Thanks in advance.


    > I installed the last bus Microsoft UAA for high definition audio driver for XP from Toshiba and Realtek too... a lot of time and in different ways... Previously I installed the High Definition Audio Driver Package - KB888111 from Microsoft. But I still have no sound.

    You're on right way boyfriend, you must also install another patch MS; KB835221
    So finally the KB888111 and KB835221 must be installed before you will follow with the audio driver installation.

    Check this thread:

    > PCI memory controller - Intel(r) Flash Cache Logic Chip: the same... tried the drivers the most recent Toshiba one Intel too. Toshiba technical support told me that this unit is ready to run on Vista and have suggested me to try with Robson drivers for Vista Support from Toshiba's web page, but that didn't work either.

    The problem is that this unit only works in Vista.
    The controller memory PCI is that intel Turbo Memory, also called Intel Flash cache logic chip also called device Robson.
    It's quite new technology designed to support the new features of Vista.
    There is not driver for it for Windows XP because XP doesn t supports the function of cache, it is supported by Vista.

    Hope I could help you

  • Satellite Pro P200 (Fn) keys


    Hello, I recently downgraded my Toshiba Satellite Pro P200 from Vista to Windows XP. Everything works well except the function (Fn) keys to control the screen brightness, volume. Some function as mute but most do nothing when I try to use them. All the installed drivers although Device Manager shows errors or lack nothing.

    I tried to install all the drivers for the keyboard, the Fn keys, keyboard shortcuts, and still I can't work at all. Someone was able to get these keys to run after the installation of WinXP or you know what drivers/software I'm missing? These keys can be used in XP or they work only in Vista?

    Thank you.

    What you are missing BIOS is designed for Windows XP Home edition. This is the version 5.20. Visit the download page of the Toshiba BIOS under > support & downloads > support home > update BIOS.

  • Satellite Pro P200 - 1KE Vista loses contact with the second internal HARD drive

    Vista Business SP2. I have a Satellite Pro P200-1KE, with two 160 GB drives: a Hitachi configured as C: (operating system, programs, etc.) and E: (data, other programs). The second is a Toshiba MK1637GSX. This little about it and nothing of any importance and is normally configured as d. Unfortunately this hard drive has now become invisible to Vista, although it is still recognized by BIOS and Device Manager. In managing computer does not appear in the list in the upper pane, it comes without a letter from reader below. I have tried everything I know to get recognized, including the following:
    (In no particular order):

    * Remove computer - managed, reset as a single Volume: it always fails
    * Reformat to NTFS using Linux GParted or utility disk Linux (via a USB stick with Linux ice Peppermint on that nerd), sometimes combined with the restoration of the system - it works, but only for a single session. She always disappears again when you restart
    * Remove the driver from Device Manager and pointing plug-and-play with Windows System 32 and Windows Update - which seems to return the driver - but does not recognized disk, unfortunately
    * Meanwhile, throughout all this, Vista insists on finding a driver for "unknown device" that she sometimes found and (allegedly) installs and sometimes find one fails to install.


    Anyone know anything else I can try - preferably without having to reinstall the entire operating system, or run the risk of using Toshiba Hardware Setup that does not seem to come with all the instructions and enigmatic, who wonder if I want to delete stuff 'selected', without showing me what kind of things I am alleged to have selected for removal!


    If this second HDD is not so important to try to start the original installation disk Microsoft (Vista or Win7) to see if the second HDD will be recognized for the installation procedure.
    You can also try to install Win7 on this second HDD to see if the installation is correctly finalized. Later, you can check if you can start the second HARD drive preinstalled OS.

    Test just to see if this problem is related to Vista only.

  • Satellite Pro P200: Cannot install Server 2003 - parity memory error

    I have a Satellite Pro P200 and to the work required to install Windows 2003 server on it, but all I get is an error message:

    -Hardware malfunction

    Call your provider of support material

    NMI: Parity check / memory parity error

    -The system is shut down

    I checked the memory and everything seems OK. Vista runs very well on it, and all memory is recognized. I tried different flavors of Server 2003, although all I need is standard edition. Anyone who has met this problem, or someone has any suspicion as to how I can get it operational.

    So, how tested the RAM? With Memtest? Or Prime95?

    I read in many forums that people work servers (no laptop...) SERVERS) that correctly work 1 year with ECC memory, then windows 2003 server gives the same error message you have.

    I mean if Vista works flawlessly and you checked as you say the RAM while there could be a mismatch which must not be for lack of toshibas.
    Maybe you should try a linux ubuntu server edition, which works great on almost * ALL * systems, even on systems with faulty CPU/memory (Ok, ok, not 100%, but it works, I got this case :))

    So, maybe you can try to exchange the RAM, but if you're still the same error then ask microsoft or try another P200, if they are available.

    Sorry dude, but I Don t have a lot of ideas in your situation :/
