    Hi,

    Go to Bios. put ,,Comaptible,, in Sata Controller, press f10 -save and exit. Then, start Windows installation, no BSOD should be occur. After installation, you can install Storage Manager, restart and put back ,,AHCI,, in Sata Controller.

    But before installation, go to the driver page to check if all drivers are avalaible:

    Hi lis_2,

    For Windows XP 64bit you will not find any drivers on the Toshiba website. This 64bit OS isnít popular so there are not many drivers.

    I would recommend changing the HDD mode from AHCI to Compatible in BIOS. Then you can install XP without additional drivers.
    Furthermore check the forum content. You will find hundreds of threads about this.
