If you can boot from CDrom or floppy, you may be able to restore the partition information using a DOS utility. Easus has a program you can download and write to CD (given you have another machine) and use that to boot the machine and restore the partitions. Unless you went hog-wild in erasing, everything is still there and recoverable. Well, almost everything. There are other programs, such as those on sourceforge.net, that can restore erased partitions and others that can restore erased files.
If you have the OS CD, or DVD from Toshiba, boot that... If there was a hidden 'restore' partition, you may be able to access them from BIOS.
Better do it using special software, for example you can download on torrent NERO software (write in google - NERO torrent) this software is easy to use, try it and if you have more questions - feel free to ask...
You should check the Toshiba WEB site for instructions to how to upgrade (flash) your BIOS, if you make a mistake you may not be able to repair or recover from your mistake.
I have done BIOS upgrades on a few computers. If your Toshiba has a floppy drive and you can boot up from this floppy drive then the BIOS upgrade needs to be downloaded to a boot floppy. Then boot up from this floppy and run the BIOS upgrade program. When completed, remove the floppy disk and boot up your laptop.
YOU MUST CHECK THE TOSHIBA WEB SITE AS THESE INSTRUCTION MAY NOT BE APPLICABLE FOR YOUR TOSHIBA LAPTOP.
This is something that I really would not recommend doing unless you are sure what you are doing as this can seriously harm the computer. The best suggestion is to contact the sony help online and send them your product number and serial number then they know what flash bios you have and can send you a link to the correct download. Through experience when I tried to do a flash bios upgrade my computer went dead until I opened the back and had to shock the dumb thing.
