Netbook NB100 - Where to find XP drivers?

Where can you download the NB100 XP Drivers from?

Toshiba seems to have neglected to put them on it's support web site.

I want to install my own copy of Windows XP so I can get around the 1GB memory limit - but I can't find the drivers.

I think I will return this laptop if I can't get hold of the drivers as it is useless to me with a 1GB limit...

I thought this netbook's memory capacity was up to 2GB?

By the way there is a folder called Toshiba Drivers and Apps I think and it has all the XP drivers in there.

Thanks, I'll take a look for that folder.

I would still like to be able to download the latest drivers that have been released since the laptop was manufactured.

And there is a 1GB memory limit on XP supplied with Netbooks. This restriction is software-based and created by Microsoft in order for Netbook makers to get a cheap copy of XP, rather than pushing Vista.

If you install your own original copy of XP it should remove this soft-limit and let you use all 2GB if you install it.

Does anyone from Toshiba read these forums, or is that too much to ask?

Hi

I doubt you will find here someone from Toshiba. It’s a user to user forum. You know?
I presume the XP drivers are not available for this notebook at this time because it’s a new series…. Maybe we have to wait until the drivers will be available…. we’ll see…

As you will see by the Toshiba website on the NB100 specifications, the maximum amount of memory is 1GB.

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/series/Toshiba-NB100-Series/1058021/

As the name suggests, it is a netbook, not a notebook, so i think you will agree 1GB is enough to use it for its purpose and if you have actually used one, it is a well built and quite quick machine compared to other brands of netbook on the market.

Yes, the specifications say the maximum memory is 1GB, but they don't go into the details.

The maximum memory you can fit to an Intel Atom based motherboard is 2GB.

The 1GB restriction is only software-based. It is built into the copy of XP that manufacturers are forced to supply with Netbook PCs.

If you install your own legal copy of XP then it bypasses this 1GB limit.

Hello

I have a little problem and one question.
Suddenly when I was updating XP the wireless network stopped to work. It does not find any networks. Maybe it is the software ConfigFree that disables my wireless network

You are mentioning something about just supporting 1GB of RAM. But where I have bought the computer they say that it supports max 2GB.

"Installerad storlek 1 GB / 2 GB (max)"
http://www.inwarehouse.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=381321&view=detailed#ProductTabs

The good thing was that they told me that it is two slots available for the RAM so I needed just to by one more GB of RAM. But they where wrong and now they send me 2 GB RAM instead. Free of charge of course. ;)

Found this thread quite easily while searching google for drivers.

Took me a little longer to find the drivers here:

Hope this is useful for others.

Dont think that long link will work as it is session based, but anyone wanting the XP drivers (and they are all on the Toshiba site) use the drop down menus from http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK

I have successfully installed my own XP to my NB100, and I installed 2GB RAM which works fine under XP as well.

Hi,

I can't seem to get XP to install on my NB100.

I get to the install, when I want to choose which hard drive to install XP on, it says "Can't find any drives".

So the XP install can't see the Hard drive.

Any ideas?

Many thanks,

Mike

I also upgrade the memory to 2GB without any problem.

In addition, I also installed Vista successfully. However I got a low score of 1 :(
My scores:
Processor: 3.0
Memory: 4.5
Graphics: 1.9
Gaming graphics 1.0
Primary hard disk: 5.5

Ie, the "3D business & gaming graphics performance" is poor (lowest score of 1).

However did you get a 2.7 score?

In addition, I installed all XP drivers for my Vista, everything works fine except the Network adapters (Realtek RTL8101) & wireless adapter (Atheros AR5007EG). I found a matching wirelss for Vista from the Internet but I can't find a good one for the LAN. Which driver are you using for the Network adapter (Realtek RTL8101)?

Thanks a million!!
Peter
