Installing WXP on Equium L350D - 11 d
I have to install XP on my Equium L350D who settled with Vista so that I can run another software that is essential for my work. I found this thread ([URL] http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=35143&tstart=0 [URL] now locked) which could help, but I don't know how or where to find the drivers I need.
Can I download Intel Matrix Storage Manager that contains the drivers, but I don't know what drivers I need, IE ICH8M, ISH8M, etc. Drivers Toshiba page for this machine has only drivers for Vista available.
Any suggestions for where I can find the correct drivers would be welcome.
N° !!! You cannot use the Intel Matrix Storage Manager on this laptop because there is a big difference between the series L350, L350D.
L350 Intel chipset but L350D support supports the AMD chipset!
Intel storage driver will not work on the AMD chipset.
Check this thread:
There is a link to the graphics driver package that contains the SATA driver for chipset AMD.
You will need the files in this directory to a floppy drive \SBDrv\SATA
But there is also another possibility to install XP without the SATA drivers.
In the BIOS, you can set the SATA from AHCI to compatibility mode.
DOES ANYONE KNOW IS THERE A POSSIBILLITY TO GET RID OF WIN VISTA AND INSTALL XP?
IF YES, WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD THE DRIVERS FOR IT?
HE DIDN'T THERE HAS ONLY ONE OPTION TO DOWNLOAD VISTA-DRIVER TOSHIBA DRIVER SUPPORT PAGE!
HUMBLE HELP OR ADVICE PLEASE.
You are right. These models with chipset AMD M690G aren't supported WXP. All you can do is search for pilots Googling autour. Models were still problematic with the help of Windows XP Home edition.
I checked Equium models but the same situation. Try to find the drivers on the manufacturers support pages. Do you need info about some specific hardware components?
I have an Equium P200 with Vista. I decided to remove vista and install windows XP. I put the XP and it goes through a verification process, I guess. At the end of the audit and after I pressed the button to install XP, I get the message "hard drive not found on this computer. Help me with as I want to install XP, my laptop?
The XP operating system could not find the HARD drive because you have not installed the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
It is a SATA driver is needed t install the XP.
During the operating system installation process, you will need to press the F6 key to include the external USB FDD drive SATA driver.
It you don t have a USB FDD drive then nLite software could be a solution.
PS; Search this forum for similar topics, because this has already been asked several times
OK, I have an Equium A100, with Vista, but for me this OS is not good enough. I need to change for Windows XP Home edition.
Who can help me?
I brought an Equium L350D around last August. It came with Windows Vista, which I wasn't completely satisfied, but it had become the standard at this time.
After several problems with Vista and preferring just generally XP, I decided it was time to downshift.
So I jumped in my drive XP, Set BIOS to boot from the CD, reboot. Vista.
So I jumped to the BIOS, and he says he is not an optical drive detected. But when I boot in Vista and pop a disc in the drive, it works fine.
I also tried Ubuntu Live CD, but it just started to new Vista.
Anyone know what I can do to work around this problem?
If you try to install Win XP without SATA drivers then the SATA in the BIOS mode must be on compatible.
By the way; If you can still boot the Vista operating system on the HARD drive, then check if you are using the latest version of the BIOS!
I just bought an Equium L350D - 11 d, which comes with Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed. I have just ordered an extra 2 GB of RAM to upgrade to 4 GB 2 GB standard and also want to install Windows XP 64-bit why.
Anyone know where I can get drivers 64-bit for this laptop?
I looked on the Toshiba page for this laptop and can only find drivers for vista, Windows 7 and what is OS dependant.
Thanks in advance,
Unfortunately, Windows 64-bit is not popular, and no driver is available on the Toshiba driver page. You have to collect the manually or by using a software like Driver Genius Driver Magician. Note that some of the drivers might not exist at all. If you decide to install anyway, don't forget to do a recovery disk.
I have a Toshiba Equium L350D - 11 d and just installed Windows XP. Only problem is all the drivers on this site are for vista, I managed to get the drivers for audio, graphics etc. Only problem is my wireless driver I looked everywere and cannot find it.
Any suggestions please
I put t know where you have already looked for drivers and which WLAN card is installed in your laptop, but you should check official Portal of Toshiba WLAN. You will find all the official Toshiba drivers for wireless network cards:
I have a Satellite L30 - 10Y (PSL33E 03L031EN) (about 2 years), it is running Vista (installed come) and I'll replace it with XP pro SP3.
I already have the drivers (from the Division of driver Toshiba), but I wonder if there are any issues that anyone knows how I could run in this case?
I installed OS to my house several times, built offices with absolutely no problems whatsoever, but various articles I read there seems to be a bit of a 'ball game' different when it comes to laptops?
Also I have Vista disks more so if XP will not install I can not simply go back to Vista.
Tips, advice or warnings very welcome...

The solution is to install the SATA drive.
The problem is that I don't have a floppy drive to install the SATA drive, so what can I do?
The use of the disk is the best way to install the SATA or RAID drivers.
But I searched a bit on the net and found nLite.
You can use nLite and include the drivers then you do not have to use the
Seems OK, the wife dropped the laptop while it was on and now it does not start correctly.
Recovery option did not work and I don't want to buy the CD of restoration of £30. I want to receive a ball of Vista anyway and go back to XP.
Sounds like there is a corruption of boot, but I'm a bit stuck here how to install XP.
Problem is, well here is a picture from when I try to install XP from the disk. There are a few partitions with no name.
Looks like they are empty... but the Vista installation and the files are there somewhere. I can boot into linux from a live CD and find documents intact (phew) but can't burn it to a disk (grrr).
So, how can I install XP?
If I press c to create a new partition, there is room for 1498MB...

What I see on the screenshot is the typical structure of partition of disk on Toshiba laptop pre-installed with Vista.
-Unpartitioned space is WinRE partition and belongs to Vista
C and D are the OS partitions.
So if you want to install Windows XP Home edition, I recommend allows you to delete all partitions. In the early days, then C, and at least this score of 1.5 GB. After doing this create new partition C and installing WXP on this.
Later, Windows XP Home edition, you can activate second partition.
BTW: what model of laptop do you have? Check if your laptop is supported WXP. I hope that you will find that all of the drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page.
Whenever I go on the computer laptop (Equium L350D) I get the Menu start, and just, it is there and does not start automatically.
It will start if I select the HARD drive very well.
There is no cd or USB devices connected to confuse it, nor is it network.
I tried pressing F2, but this does ' t seem to work and instead of the only way that the configuration utility is to choose in the Start Menu. Once in the "InsydeH20 Setup Utility" all that I can do is change the order of boot devices.
Once I have quit the utility, it will start normally.
Anyone can shed some light?
Enter the BIOS settings and check the boot order. How is it defined? What device is set as the first boot device?
Set the BIOS default settings, save the settings and check again.
Hello world! I hope that someone out there will be able to help me with this problem.
I have a TOSHIBA EQUIUM L350D with a CARPET * A DVD-RAM UJ-850 s ATA Device like the CD/DVD drive. Recently, the small plastic disc that fits on the center pin and the handles of the CD or the DVD has started to come adrift when the drawer is closed and the rotation starts; It's a horrible grating noiise! The small plastic disc appears to push on the center pin and I tried pressing the home more firmly, but still, it breaks off at the speed.
So I want to know: is there a way to secure the disc plastic safe? And if not, the only solution is to replace the drive? I don't know how I got into all this.
Thank you very much in advance for your help!
I m quite skeptical that you will be able to solve this problem. Check on eBay if you can buy the new driver.
Replacement should not be that complicated, and it will be certainly simpler to solve this problem.
If you need assistance with replacing optical drive let us know.

Hello, my friend
To be honest, I don't understand what you mean with this error message. The fact is that report of people here on the problems with the installation of Windows XP Home edition because the HARD drive is not visible when installing WXP begins.
To install Windows XP edition family on this laptop you need Intel Matrix Storage Manager and you can download it from the Toshiba support page. When installing Windows XP Home edition begins to press F6 and load this driver. The HARD drive will be recognized correctly and you can continue the installation of Windows XP Home edition. The problem is that you need USB floppy drive. You get one somewhere?
I would like to know how to completely remove the screen on Equium L350D?
