Toshiba Portege - using PC installed Win XP - won't get past boot

    Bought a cheap Toshiba portage - because the HD was dead. I've replaced the
    HD and installed standard WinXP on the HDD from my PC (because I don't have
    an external CD for the toshiba yet). I can boot fine from the disc on my PC,
    but on the Toshiba it gets to the point in the boot sequence when the line
    is filled in completely in white and then hangs the machine.

    Am I suffering from lack of the correct drivers? surely the laptop would
    boot standard XP? (I don't have the XP tablet edition either - if there is
    such a thing). I just have one disc with some tablet files on it.

  2. Are you saying that XP is already installed and then you are transferring
    the drive, or that you are putting the basic cabs onto the hdd and then
    trying to setup XP from the drive?
