Installing Windows XP on Toshiba Satellite L40

[Lihat Versi Bahasa Melayu]


Serial ATA has become common bus on all new computer system, like the Toshiba Satellite L40 notebook machine has using the "Intel(R) 82801HEM SATA RAID Controller" chipset.

To install Windows XP on this system, you have to press F6 to supply the SATA driver to windows XP setup. I manage to get the driver by searching the net and put in on floppy disk. Then I start to install Windows XP onto this L40, with USB Floppy Drive and NO LUCK, the installation was failed.

During the installation, pressing F6 will instruct Windows XP setup to read additional driver from floppy disk. Setup will ask to select the correct driver by pressing 'S'. Setup will display the list below;

Intel(R) ICH9 SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop/Server/Workstation)
Intel(R) 82801HEM SATA RAID Controller(Mobile ICH8M-E)
Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH8M-E/M)
Intel(R) ICH8R/ICH9R SATA RAID Controller (Desktop/Server/Workstation)
Intel(R) 82801HR/HH/HO SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop/Server/Workstation)
Intel(R) 631xESB/632xESB SATA RAID Controller (Server/Workstation ESB2)
Intel(R) 631xESB/632xESB SATA AHCI Controller (Server/Workstation ESB2
Intel(R) 82801GHM SATA RAID Controller (Mobile ICH7MDH)
Intel(R) 82801GR/GH SATA RAID Controller (Desktop ICH7R/DH)
Intel(R) 82801GR/GH SATA AHCI Controller (Desktop ICH7R/DH)
Intel(R) 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH7M/DH)
Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH6M)

Then, I choose


Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller (Mobile ICH8M-E/M)

from the list. Windows Setup can detect SATA harddrive and can continue to create partition and formatting until to state where Windows Setup 'forgot' the USB floppy disk and keep asking you to insert the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver diskette into floppy A:, (the disk still in the drive, but Windows setup could not recognise the drive)

INSTALLATION must be abort, failed!

Then, I try other method, which is required me to put the SATA driver to the Windows XP Installation Disk. It is called Setup Disk Streamlining. I'm using nLite to do the job and toast a installation cd.

Steps of nLite process;

  1. run nLite, Welcome Screen appear, click Next.
  2. Locating the Windows installation .. insert you original Windows XP Installation CD (which I use OEM version of Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2) to you optical drive, and click Browse.
  3. Pick a location on your harddrive (or make a new folder) to store your Windows XP Installation files befoe making ISO file. Click Next.
  4. Preset. delete all preset (if exist).. click Next
  5. Task Selection, Only select to options, Driver and Bootable ISO, then press Next
  6. Drivers. click Insert, Single Driver, then Choose any INF file... appear, choose iastor.inf from folder where you extract the Intel SATA driver. click Open...
  7. Storage Device Textmode Driver, click on Textmode Driver and, while pressing CTRL button, click all the driver from the list with the word 'mobile' There is 5 of it. Click OK
  8. then click Next
  9. Apply Changes? click Yes. nLite now preparing files to make the bootable ISO image file. When this process is done, press Next.
  10. Bootable ISO, in General, Mode section, choose appopriate format that suite you, either make a CD or ISO image. I suggest you make ISO image.
  11. Create a CD from the ISO, using your favorite ISO software.
I use the CD created in step 11 to install the Toshiba Satellite L40 with success.
good luck...
