Installing WXP on Satellite L350 - 107

It comes preinstalled with Vista on the disc. Now I have an original Windows XP Home edition and I use my laptop for music production and the problem is that all my programs are not really compatible with Vista. If I want to install Windows XP Home edition.

I put in the disc of Windows XP SP2 home edition and it goes to the portion of disk partition and I don't want Vista, so I try to format my whole system, but when it is supposed to perform the format it gives an error on drive p:

I'll try it again in a lil and then I'll post exact error code

Someone at - it already had a problem like this one?

Is it possible to put Windows XP Home edition on my laptop without having to get a floppy drive and having to use these programs I've read on a few posts, because I don't understand why he can't just install if you Gets an original Windows XP Home edition CD.

in any case thank you already for the answer.

I try he's now to get this error report and then I'll post it here.

Oi oi oi


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?

  • Installing WXP on Satellite L30 - 10Y

    Hi all

    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...

  • Installing WXP on Satellite A300D 11s

    Hello, all.

    This question has already been asked not so long ago, but I would like to know more details. Do I need to use the Intel Matrix Storage HARD drive driver for installing WXP on Vista? Judging by the manufacturer of CPU - AMD - I have not. How the problem of 'visibility' SATA then be resolved? Or not be no problem at all?

    If you have already answered a question the same origin, can John, you please respond to mine? Maybe somebody could answer?

    What other problems can I face to replace Vista with the good old Windows XP Home on my A300D?

    Thanks in advance.

    How about you, the use of the nLite?
    nLite may include the SATA driver in XP operating system CD.
    So you n t overall 104MB just need only take the view the SATA driver files and include it using a nLite ;)

    Google for nLite and you'll get more details!

  • Re: Can I install WXP on Satellite L500D - 12 p?

    Yesterday, I received by Satellite L500D - 12 p, new with Free DOS. I would like to install Win XP, so when I put the installation CD of XP, came a few blue windows, something like BSOD, error screen with some kind of information that there is no space, memory to install. Then I heard accidentally than laptops usually cannot save hard drive, so I'll need some SATA and USB floppy or something like that the controllers (don't know which means that!).

    So, I wonder how to install Windows XP on L500D 12 p?

    Grateful, best wishes!

    Before you install Windows XP Home edition on your new laptop check if this model of laptop is WXP supported.
    I mean if you can't find the drivers of Windows XP Home edition and all the important tools and utilities there is no sense to start the installation of Windows XP Home edition.

    By the way: you created installation of recovery DVD?

    I have a Satellite L300 (PSLB8E) laptop computer and I want to install Windows XP, but unfortunately, I still get an error message after you start the XP CD (XP Setup has encountered a problem, the Setup will leave...)

    Is there a solution?

    You use the Microsoft disk to install Windows XP? Then you need the SATA drivers to install in AHCI mode or the consistent value in the BIOS but so will lose some system performance.
    In the Forum are already a large number of discussions on this subject, in order to check the threads here.
    And take a look at this:

    However, it could also be that the CD is noisy or something else. Try another disc.

    Satellite L300-0HH seems to be a Canadian series of Toshiba I goggled a bit and found some pages saying that it s a Canadian model.

  • Installing WXP on Satellite L40 - 18Z


    I recently bought a laptop: SATELLITE L40 - 18Z, MODEL No. PSL48E. One of their salesmen dim wit forgot to mention that the warranty expires once you remove the VISTA machine.

    I make music and need for XP as no software has caught with VISTA yet.

    Someone out there has done this on this machine? It works if you download all the drivers for the model of the toshibas download section? When you have to install the drivers and through what media bring you on the machine? Do yuou should reformat the hard drive at all prior to xp?

    I'm not clued by all means on this side of things for any help/advice would be much appreciated!

    Thank you

    > One of their salesmen dim wit forgot to mention that the warranty expires once you remove the VISTA machine.
    That s is not true.
    If you want, you can install the XP. That will not affect the warranty!

    If you want to install the Xp you simply boot from the XP CD.
    Then, you will need to include the SATA (Intel Storage Manager) driver using the F6 key during the installation procedure.

    All or all the drivers needed XP, you should find on the page of the pilot!

    See you soon

  • Installing WXP on Satellite L350D - MODEL No. PSLE0E



    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?

  • Installing WXP on Satellite A200 - 1P8

    Hi all

    I am trying to install Windows XP Home edition on my new Satellite A200 1P8
    But my hard drive is not recognized, now I looked on the internet and I have no Intel Storage Manager but I need drivers now for my Hitachi HTS541616J9SA00 (82801 HBM / HEM ICM8-M) so, where I can find these?

    Thank you very much

    I have an external floppy drive that works.


    The Intel matrix storage manager contains the SATA driver that is needed to recognize the HARD drive and install XP on your laptop.
    You can use the external floppy drive floppy to include the SATA driver in the program XP installation, or you can create your own XP CD which includes the Intel Matrix Storage Manager too.

    I had some problems using the external floppy drive too and that's why I chose the second option. I used nLite freeware program to create an own XP CD with SATA drivers. It s really great. You must test it too.

    I think this could help you.

    Good bye

  • Installing WXP on Satellite L30-105

    OK, I'll take delivery today of a new L30-105 (Core Duo 1 GB 80 GB DVDRW Vista Home) and have heard a lot of bad things about Vista. Couple because I splashed by A £100 for a real OEM version of XP to Christmas, I really do not have this go waste and was wondering if anyone has experience of wiping the OS Vista the day they open the laptop.

    What I have to be wary of everything by this facility? I know that I have to download the drivers for Toshiba and create a driver before the formatting, the Vista operating system disc and the installation of XP, but I need to reset the bios to read from DVD player, etc etc?

    Cheers in advance!


    No, you should not reset or update the BIOS. Installing XP should work without big and serious BIOS updates.
    I would not recommend also to wipe Vista but to install XP on the HARD drive second.
    In this case, you can use the two OS's.
