I've had the same thing happen with a Toshiba laptop. Except I was trying to
upgrade it from XP Home to XP Pro. One of the drivers wouldnt work under XP
Pro and Toshiba said "tough luck" and would offer any assistance.

I've not bought a toshiba since and wont do so in the future.

Mark -

If this is a new laptop, check with the hardware vendor before buying a
of XP and attempting to load it.

My nephew reformatted his new Toshiba and tried to load XP from scratch
received errors. After a call to Toshiba customer service, they indicated
that his particular model will NOT run Windows XP, only Vista - so he had
reload Vista again from his recovery disk.

Needless to say, he was mighty pissed off...
