Tecra A10 HDD SATA drivers (Windows XP)
I need to download drivers Windows XP SATA HDD for Toshiba Tecra A10.
I searched all websites of Toshiba in the world and the closest I can find is "Intel Storage Manager" stating "Intel Matrix Storage Management utility to manage your local storage space, including support RAID, including drivers, you will need to provide the installation manual to make the HARD disk available to the operating system OS installer" in the description
However, the Intel Storage Manager cannot be installed on a laptop with XP is already installed. There is no drivers for the SATA HARD drive included in the compressed package I downloaded (stormng - 20080903143138.zip).
The SATA HDD drivers are available for this model? These are needed when you press F6 during installation of Windows XP, so it can detect the hard drive.
I think you should download the + 32 - bit floppy Configuration Utility for Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
You will find the unique SATA driver .inf and dll files.
These files should help you!
I try to install XP in a Tecra A10 and I get the blue screen of death each time I try. It's all beautiful download initially, but when it goes to 'Windows Installer', then the blue screen appears. Any ideas?
I imagine that you didn t include the SATA drivers for Win XP operating system.
The new models of laptop computers supports the SATA HDD controller and a SATA drivers are required to properly install the Win XP or Vista.
The SATA drivers are part of the Intel Storage Manager which is on the European driver Toshiba page.
I recommend the snatch and read some threads here in the forum about the SATA and Intel Matrix Storage Manager drivers
I intend to buy a Tecra A10 - 19 t and its docking station (PA3508E). I'll order it with 4 GB of RAM so I'll format it the first day to remove Vista32 to install seven (I don't like Vista) 64 (want all available RAM).
Someone has a return facility 7_64 beta or RC (same RTM) on this laptop? No problem with drivers (video, BT, Wifi, audio,...)?
Thanks in advance,
As a general rule, Windows 7 can use the Vista drivers, drivers Win7 beta on the Toshiba site there we.
So if you can find drivers Vista 64-bit for the A10, there should not be problem.
Hello Toshiba & Forum
I want to buy a Tecra A10 1GV, but always delveres Toshiba laptop with a 32-bit Windows 7 Prof
In my eyes that seems to be a Ferrary with a steam engine.
The version of recovery sometimes offer 32 and 64 bit Installation.
Does anyone know, if this would be possible with the Tecra A10?
Is something wrong with a Tecra and a 64 Bit - system?
In my opinion the Windows version (32-bit or 64-bit) has nothing to do with the hardware of the laptop. If you use 3 GB of RAM or less in my opinion 32-bit is sufficient because it s not slower or faster for 64-bit. It is just necessary to use 4 GB of RAM.
But as Al - eX has already written that you can download all the drivers on the Toshiba site. Check this box!
Equium L40 17 M (PLS49E) running XP... and I want to install Windows 7 and I need the disk drivers sata HARD turn...
But I can not find these anywere... I tried the site driver Toshiba and other pilot sites.
I had the same problem when I wanted to move from Vista to XP
And found out that I just needed to add the driver for Sata HARD drive in the ISO I was
I after trying Vista inside drivers
Then someone knows that are Windows 7 disc sata (Storage Manager) HARD drivers
or if I can use the Vista ones
Normally, you can get all the drivers on the Toshiba page:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com-online decision-making supported Downloads & => Download drivers
I checked the page, and it seems that for Windows 7 not all drivers available. So, as you've already written that you can try the Vista driver because most of them are also work on Windows 7.
An alternative, you can consult the Intel page. Maybe you can find a newer driver that was official published for Windows 7.
If you n t know how to use this driver exactly, use the forum search. You will find hundreds of threads. ;)
I used Easeus todo backup to backup my OS.
Later I stupidly formatted the hard drive probably clear in the important boot partition/sector that may have existed.
After that I "restored" the windows image file on my laptop 7
Unfortunately, it does not start
When I start the laptop I get the message "insert system disk... then press a key."
Nobody knows is anyway I can now do my windows 7 bootable again please
Try to start the Windows 7 disc.
Then you should be able to start the Repair Console.
In the console, you can use the commands * FixMbr * and * FixBoot * to repair the master boot record.
In case this is not enough, I think you would need to reinstall the system again
There are many problems with this Tecra A10.
As Windows Xp is disabled, I tried Windows 7, which is too awkward, so I wanted to try the eSATA operating systems. Although I could install Lubuntu on eSATA it would not start (no hard drive inside most) to eSATA, but booted from USB.
Read in the forum and put the Windows 7 Home 32 disk inside again and downloaded the BIOS update only to get a response "not supported".
The A10 has a Windows Vista professional sticker slot, is the only OS where this Tecra can get BIOS updated?
We have no records of Windows Vista.
Installation of Windows 2000 or XP, it's really a lot of time, even for 9 x.
The last beta demoCD with eComStation, todays OS/2Warp, works fine on the Tecra, it has Windows integrated 3.11, is that not? Windows 3.11 on a SD card installation must be as fast and as possible. If there are drivers available?
ReactOS (freeWindowsXP) is usually able to boot, but it is still in the alpha stage!
As for flat BACK? There are the LiveCD with BACK.
You can also find Vista LiveCD socalled VistaPE CDs on the net, but their origin is unknown.
What is the best option? Is there only one option?
> Although I could install Lubuntu on eSATA it would not start (no hard drive inside most) to eSATA, but booted from USB
I guess that the BIOS does not support booting eSATA port but just the USB port.
But it's just an idea... that should be checked once more in the BIOS settings.
Maybe a BIOS update would also help.
> Read in the forum and put the Windows 7 Home 32 disk inside again and downloaded the BIOS update only to get a response "not supported".
BIOS update may be run from under Windows system only. But the BIOS update also requires some software additional Toshiba which depends on the system.
In the case of Windows 7 or Vista, the value of added Toshiba package must be installed. In the case of Win XP, you must install the package of common Modules.
To be honest I don t understand what you want to do
Tecra A10 is a great unit. I have the successor called Tecra A11. I use Win 7 and its really awesome OS. Much better than the beginning of Win XP
I'm looking for an install command for the Tecra A10 for 32-bit Windows XP Pro. Do a clean install of an image and want to do things.
Any help would be great.
See you soon,.

I need to upgrade the BIOS v 1.60 to the latest version of the BIOS. I downloaded from the site of Toshiba bios file (bios - 20091103164158.zip-> P0065v300.exe), but when I try to update comes this question:
TOSHIBA BIOS PACKAGE VER 3.3.0
THIS COMPUTER IS NOT SUPPORTED
TECRA A10 - 12H
Windows 7 32 bit
Have you installed the VAP (value added package)?
The VAP is necessary in order to run the BIOS update and Toshiba tools.
I found a son with the same error message, but the user is using Win XP.
The problem could be solved by the installation of common Modules (only for Win XP).
But the VAP is released for Vista and Win 7 and common modules are in the VFR package.
I want to downgrade my A8 - 103 to Win XP, but probably will need SATA drivers (and floppy) when installing (F6), but can't find where to download the SATA/RAID drivers for my model?
To my knowledge that the Tecra A8 does not support RAID.
It supports the interface ATA (SATA) series.
But these drivers do not exist on the page of Toshiba. The operating system should include the Sata drivers or you'll get it on the Intel page.
The XP must support all service packs. If your XP includes all the patches and SP, you can create a bootable CD of windows with an application called nLite. Check it!
I bought a new laptop Tecra A10 - 12z, having a Vista operating system.
I fixed my laptop and now I want to install a Windows XP operating system
When I install Windows xp, Setup Wizard download windows files, but it cannot start.
Troubleshooting comes up saying there is a mistake and try to scan drive hard with / f for fixing.
What can I do?
I am in need for the version of Windows XP.
My xp backup CDs are broken and I'm not in my country of today.
Note: I tried to format the hard drive and also tried to install winxp on win vista, same problem same error.
Thanks for help.
You was not able to install the Windows operating system because you have not installed the SATA drivers that are needed to recognize the new SATA HDD controller.
The SATA drivers are part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
You can build an own Windows disc using nLite software and might include drivers SATA on this CD.
I recommend research and read the forum discussions related this topic.
There is a lot of discussion on the same topic!
Sorry to post a new thread, but the old "[Tecra A10 - installation for XP order |]" http://forums.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=45611] "being closed and my question is about the same subject."
I got hold of a Tecra A10 PTSB0A-002001 so I would install XP SP3 top the order of installing additional drivers from Toshiba is very useful. Thanks Ivan25 for this information.
Toshiba has also include a Java Runtime Environment 2 package which I intend to replace it with a JSE 7. I would like to know in what order it should be installed?
In addition, after installing XP SP3 there are still hundreds of Windows updates to apply these updates to Windows must be installed directly after installation of XP SP3 or drivers Toshiba?
Thanks in advance for your help
See you soon

Java Runtime Environment 2 package can be installed after the installation of all the current drivers and substantial tools Java Runtime Environment isn t, if it to install other drivers and tools and so it s not very important when the package would be installed.
You must install all updates of Win XP after installing Toshiba drivers and utilities.
During the installation of the update, the laptop must be restarted several times and the whole process could take a while
However, from my point of few, Win XP isn't the best choice now since Microsoft only provides no support for this system now
Windows 8 upgrades very well for example drivers etc for this model you
No, Tecra A10 is not only win 8 supported phone model.
But this does not mean that you can not install the 8 Win.
You can install Win 8 on Tecra A10 but you will need to find the Win 8 driver for your own hand and maybe you will get not all drivers Win 8 However, 8 Win would go.
We have recently done a new install of Windows 7 x 64 on a Toshiba Tecra A10.
The operating system has taken over most of the drivers, we had to install drivers for the card reader ourselves.
Our problem is that the touchpad and the buttons work at all.
The driver displayed in devices such as manager being installed, but that's all. I even installed the control panel of the Alps (Vista x 64) which works very well.
Have tried the settings "stick and touchpad are automatically invalidated" when you use an external USB mouse, all to nothing done.
The equipment worked perfectly okay with Windows 7 32 bit installed.
Is there a fix here?
Maybe it of just a driver issue, I checked the downloads available for Tecra A10 on page of Toshiba and Windows 7 32 bit there is a newer driver available for Windows 7 64 bits do not (no driver). If you use the Vista 64 bit driver
What you can do is to test the driver for the touchpad for Tecra A11. There is a version more recent for Windows 7 64 bit of Alps Electric so correct. Touchpad driver is not linked so I sure it will also work on your model of m.
Take a look at the Web of Toshiba Tecra A11 driver site:
http://EU.computers.Toshiba-Europe.com > support & downloads > download drivers
I just installed Windows 7 on my laptop (* Toshiba Tecra A10-104 *)
It seems that everything works well except the following drivers:
1 - fingerprint Sensor
2 PCI Simple Communications Controller
Can someone help me?
How to help?
Either you can find the drivers on the Toshiba download page or not.
According to this document - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9902P50000R01.htm - Toshiba Tecra A10 will be supported Win7.
This means that all Win7 will be available. If you can't find them, I assume that they will be released soon.
That's all that I can say about it.
