    Please see the Knowledge Base Microsoft for all BSOD codes:

    In any case, this means that you have integrated a bad driver AHCI or you don t use a.
    The point is before installing Windows XP, you need the right driver AHCI because otherwise you will get a BSOD or your HARD drive will not be recognized.
    On laptops equipped with Intel chipset, you need the Intel Storage Manager driver package because it contains the correct driver for you. You can download it on the Toshiba site or the Intel Web site.

    The drivers, you can copy on an external floppy drive and then you load it after booting from the XP disc by pressing F6. Or you create a new installation with our own drivers disc, and then you don't need an external floppy drive. For this, you can use nLite.

    Finally and most importantly, I think that this Toshiba link might be useful for you:

    A message box saying: required A driver of currency for the CD/DVD drive is missing. If you have a driver on floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

    Best regards

    Hi Peter,.

    Try you to an upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 at the moment? If Yes, please try a new and clean Windows 7 installation. It work?

    Another question: your CD/DVD drive works properly or it appears with a yellow exclamation point in Device Manager?
    In your case, I would try to remove the drive from Device Manager, then restart the laptop. After that the drive will be recognized automatically.

  • Satellite Pro L40 - cannot install Windows XP

    Material: Satellite Pro L40, HDD 80 GB, 1.5 GB of RAM

    Software: Windows XP + SP2 install CD, floppy disk with AHCI HDD ICH8M_32bit drivers drivers created according to the instructions in "how to install Windows XP on a L40.pd"f of Toshiba (which is pretty outdated by the way!)

    Problem: The start is fine, after pressing F6 quick to add drivers is very good, set up windows starts.
    Then I get this message on the screen: insert the disc labeled "Intel Matrix Storage Manager" in the A: drive. Press ENTER when you are ready.
    This is not mentioned in the installation instructions.

    Well, I don't have a disc labeled like that. I only have the disk that I created according to the instructions in the PDF above.
    It is already in the drive, so I press ENTER and nothing happens.

    My only other option is to quit smoking. Tried to quit smoking and going through the whole process several times - always eventually return to this impasse.


    Can anyone help? Please?

    I think that you have made a mistake, because I never have problems to use the SATA drivers.
    Have you tried to do the floppy drive with the drivers and where did you download the drivers? Maybe you should try to download again on the Toshiba site: decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers

    And have you tried to create your own with the drivers installation disk? You can do this with nLite for example. I prefer this because that is why I n t need an external floppy drive.
    It s worth a try! ;)

  • Satellite A200-137 - cannot install windows after the hard disk crash

    last week my a200-137 crashed and now I have the new hitachi 500 GB hard drive on it, even before the accident.
    I have install with Toshiba recovery DVD windows Vista on it and after succesfull installed I have to start windows, it says prepare for first use windows then I have to wait a while and then I get the message that windows setup is not complete. But it is complete!

    After trying to install 3 times with recovert I tried to install windows xp.
    After a few minutes and transering files, I don't get the message no disc found! It is said that there is no hard drive on the laptop!
    But when I start the start menu or the settings menu, I can see the 500 GB Hitachi hard drive!

    So why windows can't find hard disk and why can't I start windowds visat after installing with the recovery dvd?

    > So why windows can't find hard disk and why can't I start windowds visat after installing with the recovery dvd?
    On this virtual path, it is not easy to say why you can not install recovery image. It would be interesting to know if the same thing will happen when you replace the HARD with the same or identical.
    This title was the original HARD drive?
    If possible, try to get original Microsoft installation disc and check if the HARD drive will be recognized by Vista or Win7 and of course if you will be able to install and boot OS preinstalled.

    Regarding the installation of Windows XP Home edition: it is well known that the WXP installation will start properly due to lack of SATA driver that must be loaded prior to installation of WXP begins.
    Check out this forum and you will find hundreds of threads with detailed explanation why this happen and what can you do about it.

  • Satellite Pro L20 - cannot install Windows XP


    I discovered this great forum and wanted to try my luck with the following problem. Any help at all is greatly appreciated!

    I do a clean install of Windows XP on my Toshiba Satellite Pro LP20. I don't have the original Windows XP cd that came with the computer, but have you tried many (legitimate) copies of Windows XP with the same result:

    The first step of the installation works fine, IE. files are copied from the CD to the hard drive and the computer restarts once the process is complete. However, during the restart to calculate, is wrong on the second phase of the facility (where continues the installation of windows XP graphic), but goes back to the DOS file copy process. This means, even if the files have been successfully copied from the CD to the hard drive, the computer does not recognize that there is a current operating system.

    The problem is not in the boot order, like the HARD drive is my number 1 option, and tried without the installation Cd in the drive. In this case the computer says only: "no operating system found".

    Where is the problem? Is this a problem of motherboard BIOS, or do you recon that the HARD disk is somehow broken? I know that the problem is not in the XP installation CD, because it works fine on other computers.

    Thank you!

    It's not easy to say what is the problem and what are the causes of the problem.
    You can try another drive to install Microsoft?

    In my opinion, it could be a problem with the HARD drive. Then you should check this with the Drive Fitness Test.
    Google for this test, it of quite easy to use.

  • Satellite M50-106: cannot install Windows XP service pack


    I have a Satellite M50-106. I have a CD of Windows XP without SP1 or SP2 I want to install (don't ask me why :) Anyway, I can't past the screen 'Setup starts windows', computer just hangs. Must be a driver problem. Does anyone know which driver is needen?


    Hi Peter

    AFAIK you can't install any driver before the installation process is complete and the OS starts. There are just standard divers from Microsoft installed. I really don know why it freezes, but if there is any attempt of the possibility of installing Win that include SP1. If you find something interesting, please let me know.

  • Satellite L300 - 17L - cannot install Windows XP

    Help, please.

    I made the cd of windows xp nLite, but no results. This isn't the start of the dvd. What could I do?
    I have not found the dll that you were talking about. I downloaded some floppy drive from a link in this forum.
    I don't know what else to do.

    Help, please.


    You can try to define compatible SATA mode in the BIOS and then could attempt to boot from the Win XP disk without installation of SATA driver.

    But if you want to use the AHCI SATA so this must be set in the BIOS.
    Next, you need the RIGHT Intel Matrix Storage Manager to Intel page.
    You check the chipset that has been integrated on the motherboard and download the right IMSM.

    Then use the nLite to include the SATA drivers and finally use this CD to install the Win XP.
    Sorry, but it's the whole statement and it should work.
    If it will not work then you have used a wrong Intel Matrix Storage Manager or the XP didn't include SP2

  • Need windows 7 32 bit for Satellite R630 - 11L

    Can someone help me locate the 32-bit drivers for Windows 7 for Satellite R630 - 11L,
    I have not found for windows 7 64 bit


    I didn t find a full range of Win 7 32 bit drivers for Satellite R630 on the European driver Toshiba page as you say, just 64-bit drivers are available.
    You can try to install 64-bit drivers on Win 32 bits of the system. In many cases, this should be possible.
    In cases where this is not possible, try drivers from other series of satellites
    It s worth a try

    But why do you want to switch to 32-bit? 64 bit OS is better if your computer supports 4 GB of RAM or more

  • Cannot install windows XP on the Satellite Pro A200-1N2

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you.


    Did you install the SATA drivers first?
    You need this driver to recognize the HARD drive!

    You must download the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. You should find it on the page of the Toshiba driver or the Intel Web site.

    You must perform the installation of an external USB FDD drive using the F6 key during the installation of Win XP.
