Having problems with your Toshiba Qosimo G35-AV660 Notebook ?

I have a toshiba g35-av600 laptop and Im trying to install xp but since the drives come in a raid array the installation doesnt recognize the HDD. If you press the F6 key at the first blue screen you are promted for the raid config but since it doesnt have a floppy you cannot insert it. How can I fix this?


Answers :

If the installation CD of Win XP does not recognize your harddrive(s), it is usually because SATA support is not working until you install from a Win XP CD that includes Service Pack 2.
Toshiba has an article about this problem here.
If the install with Service Pack 2 still fails, then the only option left is to integrate the necessary drivers from Toshiba's support web page (download) into your installation CD. Softpedia has an excellent guide how to do that. You can find that here.
