Adding Drivers to a Windows XP Installation


D

drtigerlilly

I have been trying to install Windows XP on my Toshiba Portege M200
Tablet, the tablet does not have a built in CDROM Drive, and instead
uses external solutions, one of which is the Targus Noteworthy NWDVD04
CD/DVD ROM Drive.
This drive connect to the pc via a PCMCIA cable.

I have tried to install the Microsoft Windows XP to the tablet, via
booting to the cdrom drive w/ the XP CD, it starts and begins loading
drivers but just as it is about to start the Windows Installation the
machine bluescreens & gives the following message:

A problem had been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error restart your
computer. if this screen
appears again
Follow these steps:
Check for viruses on your computer.
Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check
your hard drive to make
sure that it is properly congfigured and terminated. Run Chkdsk /F to
check for hard drive
corruption, and then restart yout computer.

Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7c78524, 0x00000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I followed the instructions and checked the hard drive, there are no
problems or issues with the hard drive. While searching the internet, i
came across a toshiba forum, and a user suggested that the issue is:

"The BIOS supports booting from certain PC Card based CD Roms. The
support is quite basic and provides only the possibility to boot. At
some point the operating system has to take over the support of the
device from the BIOS ... At this point a driver is required regardless
of the operating system (DOS, Win XP, Linux....whatever). If the driver
is available everything is sweet. No driver - no more access to the CD
Rom where the rest of the boot files and system files reside.
So from that point the connection is cut."

I have DOS & Windows 98/NT/XP Drivers for the Drive, so i am curious to
find out, if it is possible to add these missing drivers to the Windows
XP Installation, any help you can provide, will be greatly appreciated.

yes it is........but you will require another computer to do it.
Its called slipstreaming...............do a Google and a few free programs
will pop up.
basically you will need the drivers and the XP CD..........the program will
copy XP and the drivers together and then burn to a bootable CD or an ISO
file which you then burn to a CD

This is not what you asked for, but you may be able to install by
copying the XP CD to a Fat32 partition on your hard drive, and then
from Windows 98 (or a 98 boot disk) run I386\WINNT.EXE from wherever you
copied the CD

I'd tried to delete this thread, since i'd posted in another group
http://groups.google.com/group/micr...general/browse_thread/thread/831cb80b4bedf07b
i'd already created a slip streamed cd, and it bluescreens in the
middle of the installation.

I also tried to add the drivers at the point where you'd be asked to
add raid drivers, but aftr pressing F6 the installation just continued
to the point where the installation bluescreens. So i'm just wondering
if there is a way to add the drivers to the installation so it won't
bluescreen, and the installation can be completed that way.

It's having problems finding the hard drive based on this stop code.

You can try this trick here with changing the IDE drivers to generic
ones so you can boot from Windows:

Note that you can use the Ultimate Boot CD For Windows from
www.ubcd4win.com and run regedit within Windows PE and perform the
steps outlined above.

I made an fat32 partiiton to hold the i386 installation but once i
start the installation from the fat32 partition it cannot find the ntfs
partition.
