Have loaded windows 7 7000 on two test machines, desktop running fine. Clean installs in both cases. Toshiba satellite a200 runs faster than vista, better shutdown et al, but has a quality index of 2.0 due to driver not loading for mass storage controller, pci memory controller and one unnamed device under other devices. Tried loading the drivers for vista for mass storage controller and chipset under compatability mode which installed but not recognized by windows 7. Intel Engine Management Interface Driver Windows 10. Anyone with a toshiba laptop get their msc functioning?

For anyone interested i believe that the issue is traced to a feature on the toshiba laptops commonly called turbo boost, a memory caching feature because that indicates in device manager that it has issue also. The feature is not applicable to all laps nor to all toshiba product. Personally i think it a little suspect in any event so on the whole not worried about this after researching at all. The indicators in device manager seem to not affect the unit at all other than the forementioned file transfer process which seems a tad slow. The windows experience index is low at 2.0 but i think this in error also, the performance of the machine compared to the original vista absolutely rocks under windows 7. Very impressed to date and will certainly replace all my vista installed units when this OS goes retail.
