SATA Drives

Does the laptop have SATA drives? If so, you need to supply the drive by pressing F6 during install and insert a floppy disk with the driver on it.
Download driver from Toshiba website.

Installing Microsoft's Virtual PC in Vista and then installing XP as a virtual machine. Virtual PC is a free download from Microsoft. That worked for me on my Satellite A215-S4757.
