Tip & How-To about Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC

Restore win 7 from system image on toshiba portage m200

This should apply to other brands and models...
the original problem: bad hard disk, need to restore from win 7 image disks however The portage m200 lacks an optical drive and cannot be booted from usb (only options are to boot from LAN or from a specially created SD card).

Solution:
you will need a second pc that can boot from an on board or peripheral optical drive. Swap the second pc's hard drive for the one that you are restoring. Now boot the second pc from the restore disk and follow the onscreen instructions. Once completed the pc will try to reboot and you will get an error about how windows couldn't repair start-up. Now power down and swap the hard drive back to the portage. You should now be up and running, much easier than trying to create a boot-able sd image or boot from a PXE server.

Can't get to desktop


hard disk is a mechanical device
it has failed and prob need replaced

next time use an ssd and back up regularly

you may be able to recover your data using another pc
and software to recover data check out spotmau .com etc and discover your data
use it too patch the disk on slave issues too access it
then youll get most of the data back
hdd usually crashes on the windows stuff
and the user accounts you can access
win 7 allows you to take control on win xp and other win 7 accounts
if you have the passwords then even encrypted accounts on damaged hdd are available

i ave a toshiba m200 that is taking to long to operate and when it does i stuck and refuse to function in any way!! i have no idea what is the problem and am trying to retrieve my work and upload it in a hard disk, but it is not working?? looking forward for your response


Hi,it is possible that the resultant cause the problem is your hard drive(caused by the hard disk failing to be READ from or be WRITTEN to,in this case be READ from),or one of your Memory modules is failing,so first of all try swapping or switching the RAM modules from one slot to the next,one at a time,if system is still slow,take out your hard disk,get a converter,slave hard disk to another system copy your files out and get a new Hard disk.

Hello

you can do one thing
with that your data will be saved.

try a bootable cd of win XP & install os again without formating C: Drive, just overwrite the os instalation in same drive.

maybe after that your problem will be solved

Thanks
