I have a new Toshiba noteboook which I bought another 14 inch as my other 2...the model # of this new one is M300 -04V in Canada and in the USA is M305 - 04V, the Part # is PS MD 4C-04V01C. I did a lot of reading and checked out with a couple of Toshiba Depots and this model is able to be converted to XP from Vista.
I wanted to grab a new notebook as my current Toshiba is a 3 year old MX 50 - M5 and has been used a lot with no issues.
However I look to the day that it might and the parts and labour are so costly.
I did not want Vista nor do I want to be a guinea pig for the OS that is coming out after Vista and understand that support for XP is 2014. At least that is what I have been told on another forum.
What I am wondering is whether I can simply install up to SP2 from this CD that the store gave me when I purchased the notebook. I don't want SP3.
Again this is a licensed copy and I will get someone better technically knowledgeable to do all of this. ( or does this CD go on anto install all the way up to sp3?).
The person that I get to do this has done all of the reading on the drivers etc. available and then I suddenly wondered about this install CD of XP that I got with the notebook.
I look forward to comments, thank you for your time.
