A Toshiba MK1637GSX is a 2.5" Hard Drive of 160 GB. size with SATA interface. Hard drives do not require a driver (in any OS). What does require a driver is the SATA controller.

Most SATA controller drivers come included with the Vista OS so it's not understood why your having a problem. Just use the restore feature and the driver should be extracted automatically from the restore disk (or hidden partition on the hard drive).

Before we can begin to help, you must identify the SATA controller.

And btw, you need to install the hard drive into the laptop it's to be used in before you can install Vista OS. What you're trying to do is a no-no. No professional would ever attempt such a feat.

The Vista install (or quick restore disk or files installed from the hidden partition on the hard drive) disk includes drivers for most SATA controllers. You must be trying to install Vista from a Vista only install disk rather than from the install disk made for the laptop. You won't have much luck doing it that way.... and you still have not described the SATA controller. There's not much I can offer except to tell you to visit the Toshiba website closest to your location to see if they offer the SATA driver for the laptop.

If you have the restore disks (or if the restore files are contained on a hidden partition on the hard drive), those will be required if you wish to properly restore Vista to your laptop. There's a right way and a wrong way and you're definitely doing it the wrong way. It's much easier and faster when you do it the right way. Why folks always try to do what can't be done is beyond belief. There are no short-cuts with Vista..... it can only be installed the right way as the wrong way won't work (as you have already discovered).
