just bough myself a Toshiba Satellite R830-1GZ since I got a great deal and is going to be in place of my EEEPC 1215N…. as I stated in the previous posts, I love XP so the great thing about Toshiba R830 is that you can find all the drivers and utilities for XP on R830.

I had no problem so far with these last driver from Toshiba Website, only one thing happened to me, everything was fine on Windows XP English version. In the Windows XP Italian edition, on the contrary, the WiFi Fn-F8 could trigger on/off only the bluetooth. Looking at the app/registry settings I’ve found that the WiFi card Vendor/Model/Subsys were not in the app list of “managable” devices.
So what I did I replaced one all the registry keys in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Toshiba
VEN_168C&DEV_002B&SUBSYS_661311AD (that was my device ID for some reason)
and that did the job (I could not remember with or without a reboot 🙂 )
Drivers here (self extracting package 165MB)
PS I’ve installed Windows XP Sp3 from DVD using Nlite before to integrate the latest SATA drivers

is better if you install the software to manage properly FN+F5… but it’s up to you.

My Toshiba become were slow and unusable…such a shame for an i5.. got rid of Windows and installed Mountain Lion..
if you want to give it a go here are the instructions.
I strongly suggest to anyone not familiar in installing OSX on PCs to buy a sata hard drive and do the install there so you can easily go back to a working system if you have problems etc..
