Toshiba Portege M400 Raid driver issue
Hi,

I am trying to install Windows 7 ultimate on my Toshiba Portege M400 and having issues. It is currently running Windows XP tablet edition. I start the installation and I first:

1. Go online to get the latest updates for installation
2. I click custom installation. (not upgrade)
3. It ask me where I want to install windows and my Disk drive: DISK 0 PARTITION 1: TABLET-OS(C shows up. I try to click on it and can't click next. There is a message at the bottom that I click on that states: "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [Toshiba RAID]. Click load driver and load the required device driver.
4. I click load driver and browse to driver that I have downloaded:
drivers I have downloaded: util_hdd_protection, util_raid_virtual_device, driver_raid_TC00170000B.EXE
5. I get the message "no device driver were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and the click ok.
6. I can't get passed this point. I have downloaded every driver on Toshiba's website that has to do with HDD or raid drivers. It looks like all the device drivers that I am downloading are .exe files and not the actually driver. I have called Toshiba and the are useless.

Please help!!!

THANKS BOBBY

You need to extract those drivers before Windows setup can use them. Run the files that you download and they should extract the drivers to a directory or floppy, CD, USB stick.

Yeah, I have already extracted them. Your right I downloaded them as a .zip but then extracted them and they are .exe.

Thanks for the response.

I found the site where the guys on the thread said they got the drivers but I couldn't find the actual drivers. It wanted me to download Blitware and scan my computer. It isn't going to do me any good because I am currently running XP.

Thanks again for the help
