    Integrate satadrivers to your xpcd

    You have to integrate 'mass storage' driverpack from driverpacks.net site..or else just disable 'AHCI' mode in your bios..and then you will be able to install xp..But before installing xp make sure you have downloaded all the xp drivers from toshiba website..or else search them on net..Manufacturers now a days don't provide xp drivers..so FIRST MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE XP DRIVERS

    You dont need the entire driverpack..just the SATA drivers for the chipset is fine.
