Installing WIN XP SP2 in aToshiba Satellite A205-S7459 Vista original

\015 Hi!\015\012Just puchased a brand new Satellite A205-S7459 with a pre-installed Win Vista Home Premium. But I use some development tools (I'm a hardware engineer) that come to be incompatible with Windows Vista (after installed, the application probably conficted with the WI-FI and CD drive drivers in such a way that I had to use the recover disk to get the machine operational again).\015\012So I decided to go back to the old and good (almost) XP SP2.\015\012But the XP installer simply does not recognize the SATA hardware, insists that the PC has no HD to install Windows in.\015\012Thanks a lot for any help.\015\012\015\012how to install in vista os in toshiba satellite a205-s7459 laptop\015

Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd

simple solution: get WINDOWS XP CD with SP3 it contains support for sata drives

Workable Solution:

this specific model of Toshiba was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

SATA DRIVER FROM:

just download sata drivers from intel and nlite from the link and install the software integrate these drivers and burn ur cd incl them and then install normally as u were installing them earlier now it will recognize ur drive simple for more info how to do check this out
