Satellite A500-1 - BSOD appears during the installation of Win XP


When I try to install Windows XP, it displays this screen on my laptop:



I think that the BSOD appears because the Win XP cannot find the HARD drive due to lack of SATA driver.

There are two solutions;

(1) you need to add a SATA driver for Win XP (done SATA driver is part of the Intel Storage Manager)

(2) or you need to set the Compatibility Mode AHCI SATA mode. This allows you to install the Win XP without the SATA drivers.

PS: Option of job search Forum and you will find many discussions on this topic

  • BSOD appears during the installation of Windows XP Home on Vista Equium A100-027


    Like many users, I need to install Windows XP Home edition on my new satellite. It comes with Vista pre-installed. I inserted the Windows XP Home edition installation CD, but it stops with 'Blue Screen' after about 5 minutes of loading the drivers.

    Can someone give me a step by step guide on installing XP on Vista on the computer satellite phone? For example, what drivers should I? What (URL)? Should I format the hard drive? How to do this, i.e. restart vista what mode?

    Any other useful information in this sense will be useful?
    Thank you


    You want to replace the Vista operating system or do you want to use the two BONES?

    If you want to use both I would recommend installation of XP on the second partition NTFS.
    I m not 100% sure why the blue screen appears during installation of XP, but sometimes the installation of XP operating system was not possible because the XP OS CD did not contain the SP2.

    Therefore, it would be desirable to create CD of XP installation that includes SP2.
    This can be done using the software called nLite. Maybe it helps

  • tried to install a new copy of Windows XP Home. Everything is OK until the final phase, when the "blue-screen" appeared during the installation of the drivers.

    Installation of xp and blue screen of death


    I recently formatted the partition boot and recovery of a laptop Medion2230, then merged the two partitions in a single NTFS partition.  Don't ask why, it's a long story.

    Then, tried to install a new copy of Windows XP Home.  Everything is OK until the final phase, when the "Blue Screen of death" appeared during the installation of the drivers. Restarted and installing XP as normal to repeat the first onboard staged and went to the "blue screen" at the same point as before.

    Using some diagnostic software, I reformatted the drive again, loaded XP set up and I had the same problem.

    Someone knows what to do?

    Thank you allionii123

    Now solved and pc with Windows XP home.

    Discovered a trick online, who said that at the beginning of XP installation, press F5, and this leads to a screen option - select 'standard pc' and continue with the installation of XP.

    (Again), formatted hard drive ran XP installation and followed above point.

    Worked the first time.

    Thank you very much for your advice.

    I think you can pressing F5 or F7...

    How to impose a layer of HAL during an upgrade or an installation of Windows XP

    Impose a HAL

    To prevent Windows XP to automatically determine the system HAL during the upgrade or installation of Windows XP, you can manually force in a system HAL. To impose an Abstraction Layer HAL during a upgrade or installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:

    1. During the phase in text mode of Setup, when you receive the message at the bottom of the screen, press F5:

      Press F6 if you need to install a third-party RAID or SCSI driver.

      Note If you press F7, the Standard PC HAL loads and the ACPI enforcement is bypassed.

    I would not need this except in the systems of many older and low end... :-(  After all, in the same article, for Standard PC they say: "the CPU can be a 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium II, or Pentium III '...

    Thanks for letting us know what you were doing.  Do you have all the necessary drivers after loading Windows XP?  I would not recommend using the default drivers for any hardware - always see what the manufacturer offers on their web page for each component of your system - card motherboard chipset, audio, video, network devices, etc.

  • Satellite A300-1QD - two questions during the installation of windows XP or Vista

    Nice day
    Here's my problem:

    1. I just bought the Toshiba Satellite A300-1QD and since there is Vista based on it and I have Vista ultimate, I decided to install on the laptop.
    After I formatted deleated everything and I have the partition that I created a new.
    After that I installed Vista, now I'm at the point where it says complete installation and the blow bar is at about 2/3.
    My problem now is that it's now been 3 hours and nothing happens the dots next to the 'installation complete' is still occurring and disappearing.

    2 as the number one lasted so long I decided to install windows XP Professional, but when it loads after that I put the cd one has bluscreen place called chkdsk.

    What should I do now to get something on what works?

    Hello. I think that the partition table and boot loader are messed up and it's your problem. You can try to chek to find errors and format your HARD disk with a third parity tool and try to install windows again.

  • computer froze during the installation of win 7

    I installed windows 7 on my computer, it got a ways in the installation but then frozen, I rebooted the computer, but now, the only options it gives me is to restore the computer, or tried to fix the computer, ive tried both, but its hours for some reason any and then says it was unsuccessful and restarts

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.

    You can then retrieve your personal files from the Windows.old folder and reinstall all of your applications and drivers.

  • "D" created automatically during the installation of Win 7?


    My wife has a Toshiba laptop, bought refurbished, with Win 7 Home Premium installed.

    Windows Explorer shows 2 partitions on the hard drive, "WINDOWS(C:))." "has the OS installed on it and"Data (D :) '. "has the necessary information, when used in conjunction with the recovery CD for system recovery.

    My question is:-the 'D:' partition created automatically when installed Win 7 on a blank disk, formatted, hard or when you perform a "clean" installation to upgrade XP. The high '\HDDRecovery Data (d :))' folder on the partition "Data (D :)". ', (can't get 'D:' through Explorer properties) on the laptop my wife watch as being slightly more than 6.5 GB.

    If this partition is not created automatically that I can programmatically create it before the installation owner, but if I do, what size does?
    If it's better that Win 7 'sees' a single partition, I can easily do that.

    This situation "C:", "D:" suits me very well because I currently just on my XP Pro x 64 system drive. A historic agreement dating from when I used a dual-boot put in place. When I spread the secondary boot option I put in place a small drive "D:" so that my 'work' partition, first on my second hard disk (3) has been kept as "E:", several shortcuts pointing to the location. I didn't want to trawl through the system to change things to E: to something else. Guess I'm just a bit lazy!

    So, in short, "D:", create or not create?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Tony Norton

    D: is normally assigned automatically to your recovery drive or optical drive. The size of the recovery partition is normally determined by the manufacturer of the computer, and it can be based on a number of factors such as the WIM image to reinstall Windows 7 in addition to packaged applications, drivers, and utilities. Sizes may vary from 10 to 20 GB. Some may if distributed on several partitions recovery.

  • Satellite A100-192: blue screen during the installation of Adobe Premiere

    Hi, I need some help ASP...
    I bought a satellite A100-192 intel duo 2500 T with 100 GB hard drive and 1024 MB 533 memorry also has a vga ATI 1600 hyoer 512 MB memory,
    Try to install the first pro, but I got a bluescreen scrable.
    Can this program somehow in this laptop? any help is welcome...
    Thank you...

    Hi Theodor,

    I suggest that you try to reinstall your copy of Adobe Premiere, and if you still get the blue screen when trying to take note of the error message, since this will give you some clues as to the nature of the problem.

    If the blue screen appears too fast and forces the phone to reboot then just right click on the 'My computer' icon and select 'Properties', then click on the "Advanced" tab and in the "Startup & recovery" section click the "Settings" button In the next under the title of "System failure" screen make sure that the option restart automatically is not checked.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite Pro A10 hangs during the installation of Win XP

    Hi guys,.

    just thouth I would ask why my new laptop will not install XP.
    Only, it crashes during installation. No n' achete purchased on this occasion, had no operating system installed.

    I wonder if it's a driver problem, using my xp disc I bought, but like I said that just, it will hang during installation.
    What I need to intergrate drivers somehow?
    I'm guessing that this is the problem?

    If so, how do I?

    I really wonder that your new laptop is probably produced about 5 years ago. ;)

    In any case, to install WXP use WindowsXP SP1 installations CD (factory settings). If you want to discuss a little more please explain to us what exactly is happening.

  • Satellite U500-115 - unknown devices after the Installation of Win XP


    I just installed Windows XP on a Satellite U500 - 115 (PSU5EE) and cannot get rid of several unknown devices in Device Manager.

    Before to install the operating system, I changed settings AHCI in the BIOS to Compatibility-Mode (IDE), so I don't need to inject the SATA driver during installation.

    These are the unknown devices:

    ACPI\PNP0C32\1 (location: Intel ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919)

    ACPI\PNP0C32\2 (location: Intel ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919)

    ACPI\PNP0C32\3 (location: Intel ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919)

    ACPI\PNP0C32\4 (location: Intel ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919)

    ACPI\TOS6205\2 & DABA3FF & 0 (location: System compatible ACPI Microsoft)

    Of course, I installed driver chipset and graphics driver from the toshiba download page, but the unknown devices are still there! Can you please tell me what kind of driver I need to install ACPI devices - and get rid of these unknown devices?

    Thanks in advance,


    In my opinion the unknown devices belongs to the SATA interface controller and these appear as unknown device because you have installed the XP compatible mode.

    Try to install the Intel Storage Manager driver.

    ACPI\TOS6205 device can be a Bluetooth device.
    You must install the battery Bluetooth to get rid of unknown device.
