I re-installed OS (Window Xp Tablet) from the recovery disk as it was running slow.
It has been hanging at the Toshiba Boot screen, showing Built in HDD Error and failing to boot.
When disconnecting the power and hdd and then re-connecting it occasionally booted but if shut down would fail to boot again so i figured the hdd was failing and bought a new one.
Now I can not install xp onto the new hdd. I am getting Built in HDD Error, this time however it goes past this message and will boot from the recovery cd to the install screen.
It then fails to install and gives a message about a faulty disk or bad RAID Configuration.
I have since found out that this is something to do with the portege m400 having a SATA HDD which is not supported by Xp natively and needing to install raid drivers beforehand.
I have read that the recovery disk should be able to boot to a new disk directly and do the configuration but i can't seem to get it working.
How can i install the OS onto the new hdd?
Thanks in advanced

Moved from Internal Hardware to XP.
