There is one method of installing a commercial version of Windows that
> you may want to try. This will not work with the Toshiba recovery CD, so
> you have to have an actual Windows XP CD. You also need a desktop
> computer and a 40 to 44 pin adapter for the laptop hard drive, like the
> one pictured here: http://www.directron.com/adpide23.html
> 1. Remove the hard drive from the laptop.
> 2. Use the adapter to connect the laptop hard drive to an open IDE
> connection on the desktop.
> 3. Boot the desktop with an MS-DOS floppy. If you don't have one, get a
> bootdisk creation program from http://www.bootdisk.com and make one.
> 4. Format the laptop hard drive and transfer the DOS operating system to
> it. format [drive] /s This is so the drive will boot into DOS when you
> put it back in the laptop.
> 5. Create a directory on the laptop hard drive named WXPCD and copy the
> entire contents of the Windows XP install CD to it. You need to copy all
> of the subddirectories and their contents. Use the XCOPY command with
> the /s and /e options. For more on the XCOPY command syntax, see
> 6. Reinstall the hard drive to the laptop, boot it into DOS, navigate to
> the WXPCD directory and execute the winnt.exe setup program to install
> 7. You will then need to download and install all of the Toshiba
> utililties and drivers from http://support.toshiba.com for your model.
> You may want to download and copy these files to the hard drive while it
