    I did all what is needed for windows xp installation for Qosmio G30-145.

    Installation process was following: as in http://support.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB56012H0001R01.htm and it worked, but when windows installation started, it will ask once more (first time I did format and second time I did't format HDD): "INSERT THE DISK LABELED "TOSHIBA RAID DRIVER" into drive A: ...press enter when ready" - but no reaction... SOLUTION!?

    thanks in advance.

    Hi

    According to the suggested Toshiba page when using Windows setup to partition or format the HDD, the RAID driver will be erased in the process. This leads to the hang next time the machine is booting.
    To avoid this, perform any partitioning and formatting before running the manual Windows setup.
    This behavior will not show when installing Windows XP with integrated SP2

    Well, maybe you need a Win OS CD with integrated SP2?

    But why you don't use the delivered Toshiba recovery CD?
    On this CD all drivers are preinstalled and you need only to install the OS from the recovery CD. All should works properly.

    PS: Just for info: in the BIOS you should find a option to disable (or to change) the RAID.

    Thank You for answer.
    very well. I have Toshiba Recovery DVD, but it is in Germany, because I bought it from there - and I don't like it.
    I was trying to install W XP SP2 and also W XP MCE 2005 SP2 - the same thing... after all...when I did it... "leave the partition..." as You told - no format - it will ask me once more RAID DRIVER from A:... but no reaction!!!

    with BIOS - I will look it... OO, I had a good look... now it is "kaputt" (crushed) :) of course, I did some mistakes...I installed the german version OP from recovery dvd and during installation by my foolness I did also (mirroring) HDD=HDD...something like that...
    now there is an information from DOS: (if I wanted to recover it once more from toshiba recovery dvd...)

    in black window:

    Handle RAID configuration...
    # Mode GET1 F
    # Flags 0x00 not 'F'!
    Get current RAID state...
    RAID Level = RAID-1 (Mirroring)
    Status: Degraded
    ERROR: KRC error configuring RAID!
    Please go to BIOS to set a valid RAID configuration. (I tried all variants...but no success...every time the same...)
    Press any key to continue...
    end

    HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM???
