We just received a new Toshiba Portege R500 PPR50E-06V00VG3 for the people that travel a lot, and need something small to work on the road.

This laptop comes with Windows Vista Business and no downgrade media CD that will allow us to downgrade to Windows XP.

The problem is that it also has a 128GB SSD drive, which of course makes it impossible for Windows XP to detect it during installation.

How can I install Windows XP on this laptop?
