Workaround is to install clean from DVD and then it works.

1. upgrading toshiba tecra 8000. need info.

2. Windows XP on a Toshiba Tecra 780DVD 266MHZ 128 Ram - Upgrade?

Hey, how are you. I have an old Tecra 780DVD laptop (which in its day
was a great machine). Anyway, I'm still running 95 on this particular
machine, and kind of want to give XP a shot. My searches have yielded
me snippets of people claiming to run XP on this machine, but I
haven't found any hard evidence as to whether its worth it. Do I need
to upgrade my bios? Is 128mb enough ram? I beleive my processor is a
Pentium Pro(r) (Pentium 2) and the build image of my machine is
TC780DVD.006 ... Is there anything I should know before I attempt
this? I'm not planning to upgrade, I'm going to wipe the machine
clean and use a source disk. Surprisingly enough, 95 has been good to
me for years, but I think I'd enjoy XP. Any help would be greatly
appreciated... Change scares me... If I had it my way, I'd still be
running a BBS on a C=64...

Thanks in advance,
