Unfortuneately the new computers do not come with a restore disk. You are supposed to make one when you get a new laptop. That is something most stores do not tell you. When I bought my laptop at Best Buy they tried to sell that service (making a restore disk) to me. It is just another way for the store to make money. I do not think that Toshiba will furnish this for free. You could try finding a CONTACT US link on their website and ask them. My best suggestion would be to ask around and see if someone has a laptop that is junk but still has a disk. If I knew I would not get into trouble for copyright infringment I would make one and send to you. But I really don't want to get into trouble for it!

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

google it and burn the ISO to disk using imgburn or similar tool. Then boot from CD and you will have access. Or ask the person you bought it from.

SOURCE: how to remove bios password
The basic input/output system (BIOS) is essential computer motherboard
firmware. Using the BIOS menu, you can configure many system
settings--for instance, the computer boot sequence--and also configure
hardware, such as optical (CD/DVD) drives or a monitor. An optional
password protects BIOS from unauthorized access. However, you may need
to remove the BIOS password to facilitate the configuration of your
system. The Toshiba laptop model Satellite Pro T1000 allows you to
change BIOS settings and remove the password with a special Windows
hardware setup program.
1. Click "All Programs" from the Windows start menu.
2. Open the folder "TOSHIBA" and click on "Utilities."
3. Click on "HWSetup" to start the Toshiba Hardware BIOS utility.
4. Click on the tab "Password" in the HWSetup window.
5. Select the radio button "Not Registered" in the field "Password."
6. Click the "Apply" button to to remove the password and save that change in the laptop BIOS.
Please rate me if you find it very helpful.
Thank you very much. Good day ahead on you.
