    Toshiba Satellite Pro installing xp

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro p300d, I'm trying to install XP on it, however I'm coming up against a large brick wall.

    I have installed XP on other Satellite Pro's and I'm aware of the Intel Storage Manager you have to load onto floppy and then use during the install. However this is a AMD machine....

    I have found AMD Raid Controller drivers and this lets the installer see the harddrive, however it protests about putting the .inf file onto the harddrive, after retrying I press skip and the install goes and puts the rest of the files on... However on restart it blue screens on me.

    Anyone got any ideas how I can sort this, It's driving me nuts!

    Is there not a Legacy or IDE emulation setting for the SATA controller in the BIOS?

    As soon as you said Bios I found it! (just looked for something with either raid or sata in the title).

    Why Toshiba tells you to bugger around with drivers and floppy disks i'll never know!

    Thanks Again!
