    recovery disks are generally specific to the machine that they were made on.... or the brand of computer at least.... just to clarify... you are trying to recover the system ... not restore it.

Downgrading from windows 7 beta to windows vista


Did you happen to make a recovery point? Vista is pretty good about this. Restart your system and push f8 until you get to the recovery and troubleshooting. Then just use recovery console and restore it to a previous point. If you cant do this you might need to do a fresh install of vista.

  9. If prompted, Do you want to restore your computer using system restore?, click Restore.
  10. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Finish. This screen can vary, dependant on if a problem was found or not.
  11. System restarts.

Toshiba Sat A135-S2386 System recovery downloads??


As you have stated that the key which  you have is for  
Vista - basic 
and the operating system is most probably vista Ultimate
hence the key is not working

what  You can  do is search the internet for a Vista Ultimate Prodct key  
if you can find it i  guess the activation will go through  easily

if this  does not work  or you want any  other assistance please do post back.
