Go to the bios and check the boot device order, if the option for usb boot is there makes it first, ortherwise make cd/dvd as your first boot device, ........... enable all the usb options available on your bios

Windows will not start with a Toshiba external hard drive plugged into USB


Computer starts normally in windows with a windows that is installed on a hard disk on that copmuter. In other words - windows is installed on an internal hard disk of a computer A. If you get it out and put in a computer B it wont work.

To have the things work:
1. First should set in BIOS boot up options first boot device CD/DVD, second OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, third HDD
2. Should boot up from a CD and install windows on an external hard disk (in your case your 3TB Toshiba external HD)
3. Set in BIOS boot up options first boot device OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, second internal hard disk e.g. HDD0, HDD1

Toshiba P25 cannot read cd


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

How do i replace harddisk in my toshiba p25 s487


Ensure you have your backups up to date and either OS disc or rescue discs to place a new system on your new hard drive.
Remove the larger cover from the underside of the laptop, slide out the hard drive. Remove the old drive from the cradle and fit the new drive to the cradle. Slide it in.
Power the laptop up open the DVD drive and place your restore/PS disc in it and on the bios menu select F12. Set the boot device to DVD/CD.
Boot from the DVD/CD drive and follow the prompts.
When finished, download updated drivers from www.toshiba.co. and restore your backups and programmes.
Hope that helps.

Windows 7 on Toshiba P25-S526 PC and there drivers


For any drivers not automatically installed with Windows 7 running Windows Update should detect most all of them. You should make sure to select all updates, including optional updates (not the language packs). The optional updates may include hardware updates which will ensure your hardware is using the best and most current software possible. If this does not detect everything, I would recommend going to the toshiba support website and downloading the remainder of the drivers from there. You should also make sure your laptop is compatible with Windows 7 by checking out Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

Good Luck,

Toshiba satellite p25 s5093. won't boot.


The system cannot find your hard drive so it is trying to boot from the next device which is thinks is a network drive. Check the attachment of the hard drive, sometimes they can come loose from the interface. Remove the hard drive and place it back. If the machine still cannot read the drive, try another hard drive to see if the drive is the problem or is it a problem with the interface. Make sure to remove any discs from the cd/dvd players and make sure no usb network adapters are in it while booting. Check the boot order again.

Why is my toshiba laptop reading my external hard drive when it boots up?


You will have to change the setting in Bios to boot from hard drive this can be done by pressing F2 during boot up and going to boot order and change the usb from first in boot order to hard drive first in boot order.

Booting Notebook using external devices.


This should do it for you.

On the Phoenix BIOS:
Go to "Advanced BIOS Features".
Go to the "1st Boot device" and set it to "USB-ZIP".
(Phoenix BIOS, Revision 6. you need to go to the Boot Order screen and select "Harddisk" and hit enter, giving you a list of IDE hard drives this BIOS prefers to call a USB device an IDE harddrive)
