I am currently trying to fix a friends laptop that needs to be reinstalled because the windows install became corrupted.
I have loaded a fresh windows 7 home 32bit iso onto usb and booted it but it keeps saying that it needs a driver to detect the hard drive, I have downloaded the chipset driver and extracted it from the exe file and have used all the options for devices but the installer is still not able to detect the hard drive.
Any assistance would be great.

Try extracting the contents of the raid storage -- http://pc.toshiba-asia.com/support/drivers --work through its under utilities

Thanks for the suggestion wainui, had great fun on Toshiba's website, luckily with me being a data hoarder I was able to find the restore DVDs I made last time when I popped home over the weekend
