I am assuming you are trying to reinstall Vista. Apparently, HP's recovery partition is less than perfect and the recovery disc you created is probably worthless. (and you can NOT make another one, they only let you make one!) You are not the only person to have this issue.
Here are some things you can try:
1) Borrow an OEM version of Vista from someone...anyone. It sounds like you are proficient with PC's and maybe you know someone who works in IT. Use your product key (25 digit key code) and you should be able to reinstall.
2) if you like Vista, buy yourself an OEM version. It will not have all the factory (HP, Dell, Acer, whatever) BS on it. It will positively work because your hardware if fine.
3) Put XP on it. Personally, I think Vista is a mess. Microsoft is working on "OS7" and soon Vista will be like "Millennium".
Sorry it's not an easy fix, but glad your hard drive and memory show no errors.

SOURCE: recovery disk
"recovery disk creator" is a program that is used for creating recovery CDs for computer. One of the companies that make this program is Soft Thinks. You can try asking Toshiba for a new recovery disk. Their policy change from country to country, I do not know if it will came for free or you will have to purchase the recovery disks from Toshiba. In any case, if the files in the recovery partitions are still intact you should be able to do a complete system recovery at any time. In this case doing a complete system restore from your recovery partition will bring back the program. On many Toshiba laptops you have to press F11 when it prompts you at startup. Bear in mind that if you choose this solution, it will wipe your drive clean and re-install the OS.
hope this helps

Did you attempt to load recovery/factory image from hidden partition and if so did you follow User Manual or Guide re instruvtions? if so there should have been no problems. I would try again though do it slowly and carefully when choosing Options so that you don't change Partitions where the Default Software is.
Was it Alt and F10 buttons when powering up from a Shutdown, i.e Cold Boot?
