The problem I have is that the installation disks that came with the computer are long lost.
I'm going to try formatting a USB drive so that I can boot and install off of there, as those drivers seem to have remained intact. Hopefully I can get that to work?
I'm using this procedure: http://www.vandomburg.net/installing-windows-xp-from-usb/
If that doesn't work, I think the only option there is to install either Vista or 7. At this point, I just want to get the thing up and running. The only windows installation disk i have is for XP, alothough, i might have some recovery disks w/ vista that came with a gateway laptop I purchased lying around somewhere.
Do you think it'd be easier to try to install Vista onto the Toshiba using the Gateway recovery disk, or should i try the USB XP install? Would I just be opening up a whole new can of worms and creating more problems for myself?
