Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Question: Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Hello,

I have a Toshiba Satellite U205-S5002. Yesterday when I attempted to start my laptop I received this error message: windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system

And something about pressing "r" from the recovery disk. Well, I booted from the only disk I received when I purchased the computer and there is no option for repair. The only options available are to return the laptop to "out of box" condition, or to erase the hard drive. In addition, every search I've done on this error message references a recovery console, yet I cannot seem to find one.

I have several very important documents that I did not back up. Also, this happened after I shut the laptop down and put it in my laptop backback (in a nylon zipped pocket) and wonder if it could have overheated? I'm dreading the possibility that my documents cannot be retrieved.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Specifically I need to know if and how I can get to the recovery console (I've tried F8 to no avail).

Please help...

Thanks

Answer: Toshiba Satellite Can't Find Recovery Console

Hi, and welcome to TSF!

You need to borrow a Windows CD because the Toshiba recovery disk does not have the recovery console on it. This will allow you to run the recovery console.

Moved you to Microsoft support/Windows XP

i found the link on the forum to purchase recovery disc but it is for euorope i want to find it in asia pacific region??

Answer:Satellite C650D - pressing F8 i can not find the toshiba recovery option

Hi

If you are not able to recover the notebook using the HDD recovery, then you will have to recover the notebook using Recovery disk.
It seems that you didn?t create the disk in the past? right? Well, this was not a good idea?

However, the Satellite C650 is European notebook series. Right?
In such case you will need the Recovery disk for the European series and this can be ordered here:

Hi,

I searched but did not find any related posts, so I start a new thread.

I have to fix the MBR and normally you can do this via XP Recovery Console and then "fixmbr". As you maybe know Toshiba Recovery DVD only know one way - the hard way "format hdd or first partition".

*How can I fix the MBR to MS standard MBR when no Original XP installation disk/DVD is useable - only Toshiba Recovery DVD are available.*
tried the XP CD from my desktop...but you know...it doesn´t work.

Additional info:
I deleted the partition table of my HDD and can not access the first partition for a partition which would be very helpful as I could try to recover this partition later - but I can not. My SatPro A200 comes also without floppy disk but can boot from USB.

Thanks for any reply!

Best regards,
Andreas

Answer:How to access Recovery Console for "fixmbr" with Toshiba Recovery DVD?

Yes, the thing with fixmbr from recovery console should do the trick and it I'm a bit surprised that your XP disc from your other computer does not work.

Are you not able to boot from it, or what is the exact problem? Because you will not be able to repair it with your recovery disc.
Would advise you to try another original XP disc, maybe borrow it from a friend and try again. Perhaps you will have to change boot priority to get it to work.

My computer now says "hard disk device 0 not found" "Hard disk device 1 not found" on a black screen when I turn it on. I can put in the XP cd and go to recovery console, but that's about it. Now my question is how to find the information about my hard drives such as serial number, manufacterer, model, ex. I tried doing check disk but the serial number it gives me is not the actual "real" serial number i am looking for. I need this information so i can download a diagnostics program from the manufacturer's website in hope of getting my computer up and running again as soon as possible without any loss of data. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I have been having a system32\hal.dll error and am trying to fix it with xp's service pack 2 recovery disk. However when I get to the moment of truth and try to "expand d:\i836\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll /y" it continually says their is no disc in the drive or no floppy in A. I know this cannot be true because in order to get to the recovery console i had to boot up the recovery disc. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The only options i have are recovery disc or F12.

Any other ways to handle this situation?

I think that I am hosed. I tried to boot my wifes computer the other day and the bios went through its thing and ended with the following message:

|||||
Error finding btmagic.img
Press any key to continue (I pressed the "any" key)
Partition table invalid.

I tried to boot my Partition Magic cd thinking I could rebuild the partition table. The PM CD is not a bootable CD because the it falls through to the above message.

I tried booting off the SUSE 10 CD and install a text system to try to repair the problem. It tells me that the partitioning tool in SUSE is not the same one used to do the partitioning and so it cannot continue.

I then tried to boot the Windows XP Home CD. When I try to go to recover console it says no hard drive was found and blows me out. Same for install.

I am not sure what to try next short of installing a new harddrive and not sure how to get my data off the old one.

Any and all suggestions will be most welcome.

If you have PM installed you should be able to make a set of boot disks to possible fix the partition tables.

After recovering (I think) from some bad virus - rootkit infections, I got the machine from not booting in SAFE mode to what looks like clean; SP3 just installed and it runs fine. Several virus scanners found, but could not remove several infections early in the process. Remaining problem is, when I try to run Recovery Console it BSOD with a x'7b' (inaccessible_boot_device)
Running Bart-PE, it quits during boot with 'insufficient memory for ndis.sys'
Running Bart's recovery console (Windows 2003) it says there is no hard drive. So does booting Windows XP CD and trying repair.
So I know I have a bootable hard drive, but clearly something has tweaked a bit or more somewhere.
I did a manual 'repair' of MBR (why I thought I needed to run the Recovery Console) using MbrFix from Systemintegrasjon AS, but no joy.
Hoping someone knew of another 'fix' for this other than FDISK.

Answer:XP boots, but Recovery Console cannot find drive

Does the BIOS setup find the drive? If not then a loose (or faulty) data cable (IDE or SATA - you didn't specify which) could well be the problem. Take of the case cover and make sure the connections are tight. If it's IDE and you are using an 80 core cable you may need to press quite firmly to get it properly seated.

Answer:Toshiba Multimedia Console Buttons on Satellite A300 dont work

Hi Levi

Have you tried to reinstall the Toshiba Value Added Package? This package controls the multimedia keys and also the illumination of these buttons.
Check the Toshiba website for an update!

Furthermore the illumination can be enabled or disabled in BIOS. Make sure that this option is set to enabled.

Last but not least BIOS update is worth a try! ;)

We have just bought a new A350. I was installing Comodo during a Windows update.
The Comodo install failed to complete, but the Windows update did. We initially had three problems;

1. Lost internet connectivity, but not LAN. This was resolved by installing Comodo.
2. On start up the following message box appears "Can not find script file C:\Program Files\TOSHIBA\TOSHIBA Management Console\TOSHealthLocalS.vbs"
3. When I start the Toshiba Management Console the following message box presents:

C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Toshiba Management Console\TOSMgmt.exe
The specified path does not exist.

Check the path, and then try again

I have checked the path and that component does not appear to be loaded.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Answer:Satellite A350: Error Messages on Start up when Toshiba Console is started

Hi

It looks like the Toshiba Console software does not function properly due to the instillation of the Comodo?
I don?t know exactly what happens but I think something has been muddled up?

I think the Toshiba Console should be installed again but to be honest I didn?t find it on the Toshiba European driver page!

Maybe you could set the OS back to the early time point before you have installed the Comodo? This should help you too?

Does this mean that you have used the Toshiba recovery disk?
Did you create a Toshiba recovery disk at the beginning?

I think if you didn?t use the recovery disk then the issue is related to the missing driver or software part?

But the Satellite A300-08WB is not known to me? what notebook model number is it?
You can find the numbers at the bottom of the unit?

Hi

Several days ago I bought a netbook Toshiba NB550D. It had Windows Starter preinstalled, but I wanted to try Linux. I installed Linux and, of course, left the recovery partition. Now I would go back to Windows.

I would like to restore the preinstalled software from the hard disk, but I can't find Toshiba HDD Recovery Software that could install on a newly installed Windows and restore the system from the hard disk. Where can I find it?

I have an entire partition needed for recovery, nothing moves or removed.

Enormously grateful for the help
Toshiba NB550D User

Answer:NB550D - Can't find Toshiba HDD recovery software

Hello

The Toshiba HDD recovery software can be started via advanced boot menu of preinstalled Windows version. With other words this feature works with preinstalled OS only.

Now you have installed another OS (Linux) and that means you can?t start the HDD recovery option anymore. HDD recovery partition is not enough to do this.

Did you create a bootable USB stick using recovery media creator before installing Linux? If yes you can use this stick now to restore the original settings. If you don?t have this stick you can order a recovery medium here:

It seems to me that XP's recovery console is somewhat better than the one that comes with Vista or 7, unless someone can point me in the right direction for finding further documentation on this topic.

The main difference is the lack of ability to tinker with services (LISTSVC / ENABLE / DISABLE commands). A missed opportunity is the lack of registry tweaking, considering that REGEDIT can be run, but I think it only allows you to look at the registry for the recovery console rather than the main Windows installation, which doesn't help much (though I haven't tried to import/mount the registry file from the main Windows installation).

Thoughts/suggestions?

Answer:XP recovery console versus Vista/7's recovery console

You can create a Window PE (Pre-installation Enviroment) disk which is a cut down version of Windows with a command line interface so that you can tinker with the OS.

Hello everybody.
I've got an old fashioned 480 CDT here, used, but still works fine. Runs Win98 fine so far.

The Problem: The machine urgently needs re-installation, but I've got no disks for the Toshiba specific tools (i.e. HWSETUP etc.) which came originally with the laptop. (But a Win98 CD I do have!) Seems that they've been lost along its long way.

I didn't find a possibility to download these tools from the Toshiba support pages. Maybe I'm too blind so somebody can give me a link where to download the Toshiba Tools?

Where can I find these tools? (I did find the Archive section, but there these tools aren't listed :-(

Thanks in advance.

Martin.

Answer:Where I could find Toshiba tools for my Satellite Pro 480 CDT

Hi,

I looked on the toshiba sites after your problem and you could go to http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com
in the menu Support & Download - Driver Download you could find a site to download drivers.

In the first drop down menu you have to choose ARCHIVE there is your laptop.

But there is only the Advanced Power Mode for W98 and BIOS update downloadable

it seems that the Satellite Pro 480 was only delievered with Win95.

It'll hope this will help you

Hi everybody

I bought a laptop TOSHIBA Sattellite from a supermarket, but when I wanted to download the drivers from TOSHIBA official site, I did not find my pc in the list of drivers or in any page of the site, even with the automatic detection, knowing that reference of the laptop is TOSHIBA Satellite C55-A-19K.

Now I want to know is that normal, or am I a victim of an imitation product.

Answer:Cannot find my Satellite C55-A-19K on Toshiba page

As I can see this notebook model was delivered without preinstalled operating system so I presume you want to find drivers, tools and utilities on Toshiba download page - http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp

Your notebook model is listed there but you must watch which criteria you must choose. As you can see you cannot search for C55-A-19K but for Satellite C55-A with part number PSCG8E.

I have this laptop with 3 Partitions
The main partition got corrupted and apparently wiped so all windows folders have been deleted and a low level format carried out
I still have the recovery sector
Just wondering how to reinstall it back onto the main partition
I tried F8 and it took me to a screen to choose language but after that it said "You must log in to access system recovery options"
I guess user data has been wiped from the main partition ?
Are there any other keys to press on startup to access the Recovery partition ?
Thanks
 

Answer:Toshiba Satellite Recovery

Look at the boot screen when you start the computer up - that's the one with the Toshiba logo all over it - and you should see commands like 'Press 'Del' for BIOS' and 'Press 'F8' for boot choices'. There will be one for 'Recovery' if you have a recovery partition. It is sometimes 'F2' but by no means always.
 
Press whichever is the specified key while the boot screen is showing and the recovery system should start, and once you have made one or two choices via dialogue boxes it will just run until it is completed.
 
TWO POINTS. The first is that this process will wipe all your own data and applications off the system. I would suggest that you take the hard drive out and slave it to another computer - you may need to use some sort of 'caddy' but they are widely available - to try and save what you can of your own data.
 
The second is that this process will restore your computer to the condition it was in when it was built !  This means you will have to uninstall any manufacturer installed software that you don't want, and that you will have to re-install all your own appications, and you will have all the updates to do since it was built !
 
The important bit here, if you decide to go down this route, is to try and back-up your own data - documents, photos, whatever - this is the valuable stuff. You say a 'low-level format has been carried out'. This may mean that your data is already gone, but see if you can still save any of it.
 
Good luck,

Hi,

I cannot find the Windows 10 product Key on my Toshiba Notebook. Where is the sticker? On my notebook or elsewhere? Thank you for your answers in advance

Answer:Cannot find Windows 10 serial key on Toshiba Satellite C50-C-1JL

Windows 8 PCs now embed their product keys in the BIOS.

In the past, a new Windows PC would display its product key on a sticker, usually on the side of a desktop and on the base or the bottom of the battery compartment on a laptop. But with Windows 8, Microsoft has switched gears and now stores and encrypts the key in the BIOS instead.

Guess its the same for Win 10.

I've seen an HP laptop running Win 10 that doesn't have said sticker either.

Hello,

I turned on my laptop running windows 8 and the backlight lit up but there was no display. I could hear it turning on and the indicator light came on. When connected to an external monitor, the display was just fine. I did some research, opened it up and disconnected and reconnected a few things (which I do often) and closed it back up. When I tried to turn it on this morning it was unresponsive. When connected to the ac adapter the charging light will turn on but the power button does not turn the laptop on. I desperately need this laptop for school, it's beyond it's warranty and I don't have the money to get it serviced. If I can find the source of the problem I'm open to replacing said part as long as it's not more expensive than sending it out to Toshiba.

thanks for ur help

Answer:Satellite Pro A100 - No Recovery CD - Can I use the Toshiba key?

Hi

The serial key which you have found at the bottom of the unit belongs to the preinstalled Toshiba Windows OS and it?s a OEM key which will NOT work with other Windows XP disks.

This mean that if you want to install the Windows XP on this notebook then you have to purchase the Toshiba Recovery disk again from the ASP in your country or you will take a original Microsoft Win XP disk and will use this disk and the key which belongs to this Win XP OS.

You?ve got these two options.

I have this laptop with 3 Partitions

The main partition got corrupted and apparently wiped so all windows folders have been deleted and a low level format carried out

I still have the recovery sector

Just wondering how to reinstall it back onto the main partition

I tried F8 and it took me to a screen to choose language but after that it said "You must log in to access system recovery options"

I guess user data has been wiped from the main partition ?

Are there any other keys to press on startup to access the Recovery partition ?

Thanks

Not sure if I'm in the correct forum?  I tried to redo my Satellite P300 with the recovery discs I burnt when I bought the laptop.  No recovery partition on this model. The discs indicated an error right at the very end, and of course by that time the "C" drive was wiped.  Outside of buying recovery discs from Toshiba, if they're still available, does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks for any help you can provide. 

Answer:Toshiba Satellite Recovery Disc

I would try running the recovery discs again, this may have been a 'blip' and may not repeat. Make sure the discs are clean.
 
Failing that, what OS did you have on this laptop - XP, Vista, Win 7 ?  If you have a Windows validation code on a sticker on the bottom, and can lay your hands on an install disc for your OS, you can re-install Windows that way. The only problem you are likely to have is sourcing the drivers for the graphics, sound, wi-fi, etc. and the best place to go for them is the Toshiba web-site. If you google 'Toshiba satellite P300 drivers' you will find a number of links.
 
If all else fails, you can always try Toshiba for recovery discs. I have a set for a Satellite of slightly older vintage and I must admit I have never checked them for integrity !

How d I do a Destructive Recovery on a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5928. I have no discs, but I would like to reset to factory new.
 

Answer:Destructive Recovery Toshiba Satellite

Your computer may have a recovery partition on the hard drive. Try holding down the 0 (zero) key while powering up the computer from a totally off state. If the computer has such a partition, you will get a Toshiba Recovery Wizard screen. One of the options will be to restore the factory software. Selecting that should then change the screen to give you the option to restore to "out-of-the-box" state.

Click the "User Guide" tab on this page for the computer's on-line user manual that includes information on recovery options.

Hello everyone,

I bought a used Lap top off of a former classmate of mine and after using it for about 6 months, I decided to do a complete factory restore on it to clean it up. I do not have any recovery disks so I need to do the factory restore using the HDD.

for some reason I can not run the factory restore. I follow the correct steps (FAQ :: How do I run a System Recovery? :: Support :: Toshiba :: Computers, Laptops/Notebooks, Tablets, Televisions, DVD and Blu-Ray Players, Camcorders, Storage, Accessories, and more) but it will not go into the restore mode. It just beeps and starts windows 7. Is my recovery driver corrupt? How can I repair it?

I have a Toshiba Satillite and it is running Windows 7. I think it might have originally been running Windows XP and the previous owner upgraded to Windows 7. I've lost contact with the guy I bought the lap-top from.

See attached for a screen shot of my drivers.

I hope someone can help me out!!




Thanks,

Answer:How do I repair my recovery HDD on my Toshiba Satellite

If he upgraded to win7 - the recovery partition would contain XP.

The upgrade proces would likely cause problems with accesing it.

If you need a win7 install disc, you can get the .iso files from links at my digital life.

Just google:

win 7 sp1 iso my digital life

You would need the windows 7 product key. get it from your existing installation , before you reinstall.

You can find that with any number of programs - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

Hello all. I am very new here. By very new I mean this is my first time posting on a Tech forum. I very often search for answers and techspot.com appears a lot with solutions to practically every question I can think of.
Today I am stumped and running short on time.

My colleague from work, who is quite poor with computers and setting up and stuff, so I told him I would help him by removing Vista from his system and installing windows XP.
I know that this day and age I should be upgrading him to Windows 7, but I dont have that CD.

What I have done is this:

Installed a Windows XP Professional for a DELL onto his Toshiba Satellite A100-033.
I already knew (thanks to forums) that I would need to install the drivers for many of the devices after Windows XP installed. Oh I should mention, When installing XP I deleted the partition that originally hosted Vista, and formatted the drive to NTSF (forgive me if the arconym isnt exactly correct).
After installing XP, I searched Device Manager for the yellow ? marks. I currently have 7 yellows:

Answer:Need to find Toshiba Satellite A100-033 drivers? Do they still exist?

If the PC you are working on was bought with Vista pre-installed on, then installing XP should be ok as far as the hardware is concerned.
You can try a program to automatically do the searching for you, but it's not always 100% correct, and you may be left with a few to find.
This one seems to work fairly well;
http://www.driveridentifier.com/
You will need the product key that was supplied with the installation disc, to activate windows.
You should be able to get the Video card driver from either Nvidia or AMD (or SIS), from the information in 'Device manager'. the 'update driver' option can work, but sometimes has been known to download an old version of the driver.

My laptop is Satellite C55-A-1K6

In the past, i have deleted Toshiba System Recovery Partition by mistake when i install new OS to my laptop then i sent my laptop to Toshiba Service and they recrate standard partitions and send my laptop to me back.

I need to ask that question to you now;

When i open Disk Management in Computer Administration i see two partition that named Recovery. One of them is at the begining of the disk and it is 1 GB, other one is 11 GB and at the and of the disk. Which one is for Toshiba System Recovery?

On the other hand i have just created 3*4,5 GB Toshiba System Recovery DVD via Toshiba Recovery Media Creator . Instead of i have those dvds am i still need Recovery Partition to Recovery my laptop in the future?

Now, if i delete all partitions on the hdd now, can i still use Toshiba Recovery with these 3*4,5 GB DVD?

Thanks...

Answer:Satellite C55-A-1K6 - Which Partition is Important for Toshiba Recovery?

Original recovery image contains operating system, all necessary drivers, Toshiba specific tools and utilities, and of course some additional software so it cannot be 1GB only. 11GB partition is for recovery image.

> On the other hand i have just created 3*4,5 GB Toshiba System Recovery DVD via Toshiba >Recovery Media Creator . Instead of i have those dvds am i still need Recovery Partition to Recovery >my laptop in the future?
Generally speaking you don't need it anymore. Using your created recovery DVD you will be able to install original recovery image anytime you want. In case that HDD will be effective and exchanged with new one you can use these discs to install original recovery image.

Many people don't read user?s manuals and do not create recovery media. After some experiments they are surprised why HDD recovery image installation doesn't work anymore.

I hope some other Toshiba notebook owners will read this so here is original info from Toshiba recovery reminder:

Hi ..

my friend has this laptop: Satellite A300-20P.

I'm not sure what he did, but he installed Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit, then 32-bit again. The whole thing messed up.
Anyway, he didnt make a recovery disk for his laptop (damn thing). Now, becasue I have a Toshiba laptop too I know that there is Recovery on the Harddisk on the D partition (not the windows partition). I tried to use "Repair Windows" booting Windows, when I try to restore the whole PC from a backup media it says " No backup media found", now I'm not sure if the recovery sector still available or not, because the Windows cant boot. So is there away to find the recovery media?

If this mission impossible, then I have Windows Vista Ultimate to install and I can download the drivers from the site? The problem is, how I will make recovery media when install the Windows and the drivers ?

Please this is urgent.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Satellite A300-20P - How to restore from Toshiba recovery?

Hi

To be honest I?m confused at the moment because first you wrote about a problem of your friend?s notebook and you wrote something about your own notebook where you try repair Windows.
So I don?t understand what you mean exactly.

But fact is you have two possibilities to restore factory settings:
1)Use the Toshiba HDD recovery option. You can start it if you go in advanced boot menu (F8) and select ?Repair my computer?. Then follow the screen instructions.
The first partition of the HDD will be wiped and you get factory settings back.
2)Use the Toshiba recovery disk. It?s very similar to HDD recovery option but whole HDD will be wiped (all files will be deleted). After this you have factory settings back, too.

So that?s all what you can do to restore the factory settings. If the HDD recovery option not work and you don?t have a recovery disk you have to order a new one from Toshiba directly.

Alternative you can use a Microsoft disk to install Windows and then download and install all drivers and tools from Toshiba website step by step.

Hello.

This is the situation:

I have Toshiba T130 notebook with no DVD drive. After installing Win7, I shrinked D partition by tool in Win7 and used the free space to install Linux with GRUB. Then I shrinked the C partition also by Win7 tool and used the free space to create another one. This however told me something about dynamic disk or something...

But somehow it broke GRUB so I decided to reinstall Linux. But the partitions were somehow broken but I installed Linux on the last partition. Since then I could not boot Windows nor repair it because D partition was actually deleted!
C partition with Win7 seemed intact.

When trying to repair computer and try to fix boot, I got an error 0x090 or something with partition table error. So therefore I deliberately decided to create new partition table using Gparted which wiped off my HDD. Then I set up new partitions: 3x NTFS, (400 MB recovery, Win7 partition and another one) + extended partition containing NTFS partition + ext4 partition + swap.

Then I copied files from hidden (which I had backed up previously) into hidden partition on the laptop HDD + I copied Toshiba recovery folder into 3rd NTFS partition (I had backed up those files immediately after getting the laptop).

Now, I'm stuck with 0xc000000e error when trying to boot. I also followed this thread: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=53952&tstart=15

Answer:Satellite T130 - Toshiba recovery USB creation

Oh mann what are you doing is amazing. ;)
The whole HDD structure is now screwed up. I?m just asking myself why you have done this on this small Satellite T130.
I mean it is all OK what are you doing and you can do what you want with your machine but my personal opinion is that you have wrong notebook for all this.

Satellite T130 is small ultra portable notebook designed to offer maximum of mobility and offer long battery running time when you are out of office or travelling around. So I think most important thing for such notebook is well installed and configured OS that runs stabile and with minimum of power consumption. This notebook doesn?t have optical disc drive and the whole situation is more complicated if the original ?factory settings? are changed.

What you have now on HDD is nothing but ?jungle? and for me it seems pretty confused.
If you have checked ?User?s manuals? document you can find exact explanation what can be done with recovery image saved on second partition and what kind of recovery media can be created.

Recovery image is not designed for usage with third part applications so it can be problematic to create recovery USB disc.
Thread link you posted is best thread about this theme and if this will not help I really don't know what you can except to order original Toshiba recovery DVD and make clean OS installation to get ?factory settings? again.

I have an A300-1MO.
Can I use any Toshiba recovery disk \?
Or is there like a specific one for my A300-1MO?

I'm like a total noob....
Somebody pls help...!

Answer:Re: Satellite A300-1MO - Can I use any Toshiba recovery disk?

No, you cannot use any Recovery disk? you have to use the recovery disk designed for this notebook model.
The point is that recovery disk contains a image. Image is a package which contains OS and Toshiba drivers?
If you would use another recovery disk then the image would be installed with not compatible drivers and this could lead to further problems?

Every new Toshiba notebook provides a Toshiba Recovery Disk creator tool. This tool can create a recovery disk?

I have problem with Vista - it became too slow so I want to recover to factory settings.

I went through the process described on [http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm] and then instead of "Toshiba HDD recovery" as a last option - i have "Restore the complete Windows operating system" which is the last after "comand prompt". When I click on that I get another box with warning telling me "when you reinstall windows OS the hard drive will reformat and all data will be lost" and "if preinstalled files are damaged you can use the product recovery disc(which I didn't get)" and there is no next or any button except OK which I click and it just takes me back to the "Systems Recovery Option" list...

I also don't have Toshiba recovery disk creator - it was not preinstalled when I bought computer - although I had all other toshiba software.

And I know that I can buy recovery disk, but I don't feel like paying 30 bucks for something I already should got with computer - and my computer is still under warranty.

I have this laptop with 3 Partitions

The main partition got corrupted and apparently wiped so all windows folders have been deleted and a low level format carried out

I still have the recovery sector

Just wondering how to reinstall it back onto the main partition

I tried F8 and it took me to a screen to choose language but after that it said "You must log in to access system recovery options"

I guess user data has been wiped from the main partition ?

Are there any other keys to press on startup to access the Recovery partition ?

Thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite C655D that I am trying to do a factory recovery on. I have found how to supposedly access the recovery but it does not work. You are suppose to power off the laptop and hold down the zero (0) key and then press the power button...but it does not work. I can boot up with a Windows disc, BartPE, Hiren...etc. and I can see the 12 GB recovery partition, but can't get to it.

This is a Satellitte C665D-S5332 laptop and some of the instructions are for models close to this. Does anyone know how to bring up the factory recovery menu beside using the Zero key thing? Or does anyone know what kind of image backup Toshiba uses to make the image? i.e. Acronis, Norton...etc. Maybe I can use the actual program to restore with.

Help?
 

Answer:Can't Access Toshiba Satellite Factory Recovery

3) When the machine Starts beeping; release the 0 key.

4) When prompted by the warning screen; select Yes to continue with the system recovery.

5) Select Recovery of Factory Default Software; click Next.

6) Select Recover to out-of-box state. Click Next again.

7) Click Next to Start recovery.Click to expand...

Toshiba Satellite L650-12Q
Windows 7 64bit

I am attempting to re-install Windows using the Toshiba HDD Recovery software on my hard disc in order to restore the computer to factory settings.
I followed the procedure to do this in System Recovery Options, but received the following message:

"The recovery of the operating system is impossible!
Could not find HDD Recovery folder on second drive of the first hard disk. There is no valid HDD Recovery environment on this computer."

Further details:
Prior to doing the above, I backed up the system and files and folders using AOMEI Backupper. I then made the mistake of merging partitions C: D: and E:, E: contained the HDDR files.

After trying the above recovery and receiving the message above, I re-installed the system file I had backed up to an external hard disc, which resulted in a copy of C: drive and E: drive containing the HDDR files.
Unfortunately, when I tried to recover the OS, the same message appeared.

I then tried to use a System Restore disc I had created a few weeks ago, but found that for some reason that CD is blank.

The good news is that the computer still works - slowly - and the HDDR files appear to be still there but, for some reason, inaccessible.

What are my options? I want to go back to initial factory settings so that I can start afresh and re-install the programmes and files that I want. (I have backed up all my files and have installation discs for programmes.)

Before you use WXP please check Toshiba support page and make right BIOS update. As far as I know Toshiba offers WXP BIOS version. If I am remembering well it must be version 5.20 or something similar.

I am wanting to format and reinstall windows back to its factory state as its running really slow. I dont recall on having a recovery cd on buying and was told i just need to push an F key on boot up as recovery files are on hard drive. Is this correct?

Answer:Re: Toshiba Satellite A100-332 Recovery Question

No this is not correct. On this older notebook model Toshiba didn?t offered HDD recovery image. Recovery image is saved on DVD media. When you want to install recovery image using DVD recovery media you can use F button at the startup.

To install HDD recovery (if saved on HDD) there is another way to do this.
So what you can do is to order original recovery media or install operating system using Microsoft installations CD/DVD.

Hello,

on the laptop TOSHIBA C660, replaced the hard drive and, as a fact, the OS flew down (Windows 7 SP1 HB x 64).
Installed not licensed, there was no way out, on the Microsoft website, to download the image, the key from the laptop is not suitable.

Not a licensed image, there was no desire to put, the assembly is an assembly, naturally installed such an operating system behaved badly, buggy.

Done, and now the laptop does not work.
In the service center installation of OS and drivers costs 3500 rbl.

Offensively. So I'm looking for help on the forum.

Please, kindly request help. Thank you.

I've been trying to recover Satellite C670D-11K using new Toshiba-supplied factory system recovery discs. Both discs do their thing until the very end when I get these messages:

Error restoring image
request could not be performed beacuse of I/O device error
Error Image x could not apply win 7 V:\\HDDRecovery\SWIMG\15434XSP.SWM Index 2 from HDD to C

Only option after this point is to press any key and I get the blank Toshiba screen

When I switch laptop back on I get message 'boot mgr is missing'. I have tried the recovery disc a couple of times since and things don't get any better. In fact I just get a big black screen with cursor after

Suggestions welcomed please? I thought buying the recovery discs would be a simple solution but should I give in and go to a professional now?

Thanks, Paul

Answer:Satellite C670D-11K - Toshiba recovery discs is not working

I presume you use recovery discs that you have created using Toshiba recovery disc creator tool, right?
It sounds stupid now but something went wrong and I?m afraid recovery discs are useless now. Fact is that you cannot change anything or force notebook to install recovery image properly.

Only thing that you can test is - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD4103KB0000R01.htm
I don't think this will help but you can test it anyway.

Now you have two options:
-to order original recovery disc from Toshiba
-to install own OS version using Microsoft installation disc

Answer:Satellite L755 - Can't use Toshiba recovery disk creator

Hello

That means you can?t start the recovery disk creator or what happened exactly?

The recovery disk creator can?t be reinstalled because it?s only preinstalled on your notebook. I think in this case your only chance is starting the HDD recovery option and reset Windows to factory settings. With out of box settings you can use the recovery disk creator.
