Re: Portege M200: need to start Win XP boot disk

Hi all

I'm looking for a boot floppy to boot XP tablet edition disc 2005 on my Portege M200.
If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.



You must initialize disc?
I wonder why you need this disc?

I think you don t know a fact. The diskette of starting in not necessary but you need a compatible CD/DVD player if you want to start from the CD or DVD.

The Portege M200 supports the recovery through the BIOS (by pressing 'C') with the USB 2.0 card and PCMCIA (16-bit and Cardbus).

_Following and controllers (USB, PCMCIA) can be used: _
one) Toshiba, PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
(b) Toshiba, PA3402E-1DV2 USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi Drive, SN: 5362870112
(c) Toshiba, PX1055E-1NST SN: 3431490096 with a PC card (16 bit), cable, PCMCIA Card, Rev.043.242, SN: 18496 043 3999 0343 01093
(d) Toshiba, PX1055E-1NST SN: 3431490096 with CardBus, cable II, CARDBUS, Rev.136, SN: 16693 136 3999 0149 06122

The setting of 'PC Card Controller Mode' in the BIOS should be 'Automatic Selection '.
This means that you have nothing to change in the BIOS, because it is the default value.

  • Portege M200 does not start

    I have a Toshiba Portege M200 with Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition. When I turn on the computer, I get the following message is displayed:

    PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable of
    PXE - MOF: Exit Intel Boot Agent
    Insert system disk in drive.
    Press a key when you are ready.

    When I insert the recovery and Applications/drivers DVD Portege M200 Series, the same message will reappear.

    What is my next step?

    Thank you.

    This message appears only if the safe portable couldn t of the other sources and tries to boot from LAN.

    The question is; Why the Portege M200 doesn't boot from the HARD drive?
    In my opinion, there are two possibilities; There is no OS on the HARD drive or the HARD drive died.

    I think that this should be checked first

  • Portege M200 won't start CD-Rom USB

    I tried used, pressing C, changing the Bios and F12 boot boot from CD-Rom. None doesn't seem to work, if anyone has any other suggestions I would be grateful.


    Unfortunately I can't help you much about it because I do not have this Portege but I found interesting news on the Portege M200 and support for recovery disks:

    The Portege M200 supports the recovery through the BIOS (by pressing 'C') with the USB 2.0 card and PCMCIA (16-bit and Cardbus).
    Readers and following (USB, PCMCIA) controllers have been tested successfully:

    one) Toshiba, PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
    (b) Toshiba PA3402E-1DV2, Rev.501, USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi drive, SN: 5362870112
    (c) Toshiba, PX1055E-1NST, (Freecom drive), SN: 3431490096

    with a CardBus cable II, MAP of BUS, Rev.136, SN: 16693 136 3999 0149 06122

    The drive used in conjunction with the Contoller PCMCIA or USB is not so important due to the fact that the driver in the BIOS should allow the controller first.
    There is a generic CD-ROM drive implemented in the BIOS for the connected player.

    Tested with:
    Toshiba, PX1054E-1NST, (Freecom drive), SN: 151192845
    Card CardBus, cable II, CARD BUS, Rev.136, SN: 16693 136 3999 0149 06122

    The "PC Card controller Mode" settings in the BIOS has been 'Automatic Selection '.
    This means that you have nothing to change in the BIOS, because it is the default value.

    It could happen, to connect the power supply in certain circumstances, for example:
    Battery is charged too less.
    The PCMCIA supplies unless energy location.

    If a player is used with a built in battery, please always connect an appropriate adapter.

    For the recovery of USB 2.0, 2 following drives have been tested successfully:
    one) Toshiba, PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive

  • Portege M200: How to start the installation of the OS?

    I have a m200 and going in all directions, I don't think I'm technical enough to solve this problem, even with assistance.

    I want a reset/install, but obviously I need a compatible external drive for what I can not afford.

    I want to start on a SD card, I heard that I could do. Just copy the files from recovery dvd on the SD card?

    Can I get another copy if I lost mine?

    Well, to install the OS on this disc, you will need a compatible player (as mentioned)
    Of course, the device supports the SD card startup BUT to use it, use the Toshiba SD Boot Utility memory which is preinstalled on your image.

    This utility creates start-up just on the SD card files to boot into DOS mode.
    It s a similar on a startup MS-DOS disk.

    As you can see you can not use the SD card to install the OS: (unfortunately

    Akuma is right. For the time being, you can use Windows 7 for testing purposes. Official Windows 7 will be support begins when Microsoft, it offers for sale. So far, Toshiba or any other manufacturer offer some Windows 7 compatible drivers.

    I installed Windows 7 on my Satellite Pro P300 and use it without a driver.

  • Portege M200 upgraded from 1 GB to 3 GB of memory - pc does not start


    I bought a Toshiba M200 with 1 GB of memory. I had a problem with slow applications and freezing so I decided to add 2 GB more RAM.
    The dealer where I bought my laptop said it's max capacity is up to 4GB. I would just ask if it's true?

    Another is, what could be the reason why it will not start if it can be upgraded to up to 4GB? I need a BIOS update, or is it the RAM, I bought that has the compatibility issue.
    Another point while the 2 GB that I bought works perfectly when it is inserted, but when it is inserted as the 1 GB of RAM, this is the time where my laptop won't boot.

    The two are Kingston KVR667D2S5. Don't know if that would help.

    Thanks in advance!

    You posted in the category of satellites. Are you sure that your laptop is a laptop satellite model.
    Please, check the label on the underside and we post the exact model name and model number.

    BTW: If you have Portege M200 it can be upgraded up to 2 GB only.

    Restore did not work and now some of the programs do not work as tablet pc Input Panel.
    Some drivers have gone haywire, my external floppy drive and CD - RW will not work now, (the cd is an ide to usb in an external case)

    Well, if you want to retrieve the device you so you need a supported and compatible Toshiba external drive. Not all external drives are supported and work correctly.
    The Portege M200 supports the recovery through the BIOS (by pressing 'C') with the USB 2.0 card and PCMCIA (16-bit and Cardbus).
    As far as I know the discs, you can use:
    Toshiba PA3352E-SCD2, CD-RW/DVD-Rom USB 2.0 drive
    Toshiba PA3402E-1DV2, Rev.501, USB 2.0 DVD Super Multi Drive,
    Toshiba PX1055E-1NST (16-bit) PC Card Reader, cable II, PCMCIA

    Well, if you have n t not one so you can contact Toshiba. It should be possible to install the OS.

  • Cannot start Portege M200 from SD card


    I recently bought a used Portege M200 and I'm unable to install an operating system.

    The situation: I got the laptop with a trial version basis of win XP Home Edition I couldn't use. It would not boot from external dvd player usb I bought, so I installed a linux system hd with the laptop from a friend, then install via this machine (this method does not work with windows however).

    After reading many articles from those who have encountered the same problem, I decided to go and trying to boot from an sd card, which offers various possibilities to install windows.
    I tried a lot of things, but still could not boot from sd.
    I use an SD card of 2 GB Panasonic class 4.

    -Toshiba sd-utilities (AFAIK) only work on toshiba windows machines, so that they are of no use to me
    -People say that place an image of a boot on the SD disk, naming $tosfd000.vfd or $tosfd00.vfd (tried both) would make the case, but no.
    -When switching to FDD-> HARD drive boot order->... or using the third option in the toshiba start screen green led beside the card reader will Flash once, but then directly boot linux from the HARD drive.

    Specifications: Toshiba Portege M200, 2 GHz, bios is ACPI v.3.01 (which is a little confusing because the version the most recent that I found for the portege is 1.8)
    If someone messed up the bios in installig a version that is not compatible with my laptop?

    any help much appreciated!


    really strange case, but one of the first suggestions would be to try another SD card because it is possible that the card is not recognized correctly.
    A good idea would be to try some transcend cards... but just try another card and give a feedback if it worked.
    It would be really interesting if it works...
