Downgrading a SatelliteA205-S5804 To XP Pro

\015 How do you get & use the correct RAID and Serial ATA drivers required to downgrade a Toshiba Satellite A205-S5804 laptop from the chipset manufacturer Intel?\015

Answers :

Well, It looks like you might be approaching the problem from a driver side. Try approaching from the BIOS side. If possible, enter the BIOS and set your notebook's SATA setting to "ATA" or "Legacy" (especially if you are not doing any complex raid functions on the notebook). ATA or Legacy will allow easy access to the drive by making windows think its an old fashioned EIDE drive, and windows will have native drivers for it already. Good Luck :)
