I have a Toshiba Equim L10-L300 model. It had factory WinXp pre-installed.
The problem is (I see its a common one ) that I couldnt find the Toshiba recovery disc.
I had a copy of WinXP Home SP2 32bit I chose to Install it forgetting that I would need SATA/AHCI drivers.

So after Install, the laptop is coming up with the usual Operating System Not Found

I forgot that it would do this cuz i was so used to the IDE drives. Because I have no floppy drive or usb floppy I need to integrate sata drivers into Winxp via Nlite. I know how to do it using Nlite, But if you read below you will see my problems....

The Problems are as folllows......

What exact drivers do I need.?

How do I know what driver to select?

Is it a Motherboard-hdd problem, hence the need for SATA/AHCI drivers?

How do I identify the Motherboard?



I read somewhere that it was something to do with storage devices??? Any thoughts on that...

Sounds like you need to hit F-6 shortly after the XP install CD starts and load
SATA drivers from floppy disk. You might try Toshiba's web site to get them.
My Toshiba notebook uses ICH8M-E/M drivers. Doesn't mean your model does, however.
I did a Google search and found this site for all except the SATA drivers:
http://driverscollec... L10&By=Toshiba
There is nothing wrong with your computer, just that you have to
have the SATA 'mini-drivers' for the XP installation to be able to see the SATA drive.
My Toshiba doesn't have a built in floppy drive so I use an external USB drive to load
the mini-driver. Hope tis helps and answers your question // Slinkie
