I am trying to install Windows XP on a Toshiba laptop but always get a Blue Screen (various different generic error codes).
I have tried two different RAM sticks (one brand new) and two known working hard drives but still the same.
I have tried holding f5 on setup and installing XP using the standard PC settings (that doesn't give you power options) but still get blue screened.
Tried various BIOS settings, seems to be "disable ACPI" is a common one, but dont have that option.
I have attempted to create a BIOS update disk using a utility and instructions from Toshiba on another machine but get "failed detect chipset" .. assuming because its not on a Toshiba A60...
Tried using the Toshiba restore disk (that uses an image) but still no joy!
I have re-formatted (only ever gives me NTFS option) many times, used killdisk to completely wipe the HDD but still no joy!
I am tearing my hair out with this one so any ideas greatly appreciated.
