I wish to dual boot Windows XP Professional 64bit, but I cannot without SCSI drivers. Within the bios I have an option to set my SATA drive to 'compatibility' but when done Windows 7 ceases to boot. I either need Windows XP to recognize the drive with normal settings, or Windows 7 to load properly with compatibility enabled. If I could locate the SCSI drivers I could merge an iso using nLite, any help would be appreciated, thank you.

That was the first place I went, they did not have them. I did find them on Intels website though after trying to figure out the board model (was able to identify the needed drivers by the southbridge model #). Turns out Windows XP x64 isn't very well supported, and there are missing drivers for lots of things! Scrapped the OS, but resolved, thank you

This is one of the many reasons I refuse and advise to NOT buy Toshiba products.


1) they do not support their own products

2) they require you to bring your broken product to a "local certified toshiba repair facility" (local one to me is over 40miles)

3)I have never witnessed hardware failure at the rate toshiba hardware fails. (just about every single person I have come across with a toshiba product has had it fail) Hell, we buy a ton of Dell products (about $100,000.00 worth a year) and we dont have anywhere even remotely close to the failures like we see in Toshiba stuff.


Your best best to find those drivers is to find out exactly what motherboard and/or SCSI controller you have and find the drivers from the manufacturers websites. Forget about toshiba.

Have you thought about installing XP in a VM ?? It's another alternative.
