Hi,
I found a link to all your XP Drivers:
http://www.isd.toshiba.com.au/71/li...u_1=Satellite&ProductMenu_2=1468643&x=18&y=11

It list both Vista and XP so make sure you select the correct OS.

The Sata driver you need is at the very bottom of the list.
It is for a USB Floppy install.
Do you have a USB Floppy drive?

If so you will need to unzip the Sata driver and extract the contents of this folder to a Floppy Disc And use the F6 Method to install the Sata driver during the XP install

If not, you will have to make a "Custom" XP CD to slipstream the Sata Driver
You will need:
XP
SP2 (do not use SP3 until ALL the drivers are installed on your System and working correctly).
Sata Driver: Link posted above
Nlite
Blank CD

Here is how to Slipstream the Sata driver to your "Custom" XP CD:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...d-disk-drives-during-windows-xp-installation/

The Sata driver is a Zip file so you will have to EXTRACT the file to a Folder you make. Be sure to name the folder and know where it is.
When you slipstream the "Custom" XP CD add the entire contents from the Sata folder you made.

Once XP is installed make sure you install the CHIPSET Driver First.

Hope this helps,
Bill
