Hi

Did you install the SATA drivers firstly?
You need this driver to recognize the HDD!

You should download the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. You should find it either on the Toshiba driver page or on the Intel website.

You must perform the installation from an external USB FDD drive using the F6 button while the Win XP setup.

It is really no problem if you have floppy disc drive. Eldorado is right. Matrix storage manager you can find on Toshiba support page. Save it on floppy and when WXP installations starts press F6.

Thatís all!
