Hi dollardrand1

First check for all the Win XP drivers for your hardware on the manufacturer's web site.
Support :: Toshiba

If your Win XP CD, does not support your Sata Controller, you will need to load drivers to uses at F6.
Load Sata Controller drivers with a floppy disk is the best way.
SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
OR
SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD

You say your Toshiba Satellite L675 has a Intel Sata Controller.
You can download your F6 Sata Controller drivers from here:

This is all good stuff. but please can you explain how/where we actually find the SATA drivers for XP? Should it be somewhere on the XP CD? I have a laptop with no floppy drive so I will have to use the slipstreaming method. Thanks for your help

Hello Drax,

You would normally get the SATA driver from either your motherboard or your OEM computer manufacturer's driver download webpage for your specific model number.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Take look on Novatech website or on the drivers & app Disk for your model.

Ray and Shawn: Thanks I was also wondering, since my system is up and running nicely with just Win7, does this mean that the SATA drivers must already be in residence somewhere on my machine? If so, where to look?

Cheers

Hi again Looked on drivers CD that came with the laptop, no SATA drivers spring immediately into view. But.....

In fact, something quite fundamental has just occurred to me. Last time I installed an OS on a naked SATA laptop HDD (Win7 on this one) and last time I installed XP on a naked SATA laptop HDD (my old one), I never needed SATA drivers. In fact I have installed XP onto machines with freshly-DBAN'ed hard drives; the drivers cannot have been on there yet still XP installed just fine.

In fact, the only reason I'm asking this thread title as a whole is because in the thread Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP, it tells me that I will need to have the SATA drivers for XP.

But, is that always true? My experience with naked SATA HDDs as described above would suggest otherwise. Not to be disrespectful, of course, and I appreciate that you need to cover all eventualities, but I had to ask

What do you think?

Cheers
Tony

Your Win XP CD may/may not have the Sata Controller Drivers you need.
As Win XP CD with NO SP's has a few Drivers, to Win XP with SP3 has most Drivers for Sata Controllers.
Can you post the MSI model No? (not the Novatech)
