    I was told that F12 chooses the boot order, I would like it to boot from cd to recover, but I get nothing when I choose the cd icon. Toshiba had told me F2 but that doesn't do anything either

If you can get into the BIOS, go to boot options and make sure that the usb boot option is enabled and then make the usb the first boot option. hit F10 to save and exit. Load your OS disc in the external drive and reboot the machine.

It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.

Changing BIOS priority on toshiba satelite 5005-s504


as i recall, ntloader is software for the OS load, after hardware boot, so you already passed up your chance to enter bios, which you realize. i used to have a toshiba laptop, was it the delete key or F2 to enter BIOS? try delete, and make sure youre pressing it from restart like once a second as it's booting to make sure you hit it in the windows of time it's looking for key presses before it's time to load the operating system. you'll be fine. it's just unnerving to be locked out like that...

When the computer starts to boot up does it ask you to boot to CD/DVD?
1. If so put the xp disc in the drive and turn on the power when it asks you to boot to CD/DVD press any key. This will start the installation process.
2. If it does not ask you to boot to CD/DVD you will have to go into Bios and change the boot priority to boot to disk drive first. save the settings and do the first step over again

Toshiba Satellite 5005-S504; boot from USB? Reformat HD w/o CD-ROM?


First these laptops are what is called "Legacy Free", meaning there is no BIOS, at all, ever, for all time, not gonna be there.

Second, the Floppy option is referring to any supported USB Floppy drive. If you have one great, if not this will be more difficult.

NOTE**** - If at any point you do not know what I'm referring to, please do not attempt this, you will likely render your HDD useless.


If you have the Floppy on USB, then you will need the XP setup on Floppy Disk and there are alot of disks, and from my own experience so far, No, a USB flash drive will not work, I even tried an emulator which formatted it as a floppy disk.

If you do not have a floppy, then you will need to remove the harddrive and connect it via an external USB drive cage to another pc, create two partitions, one for your OEM OS disc, the other for the installation. Obviously your OEM OS Disc is not all that large, only partition what it needs, and make sure you make it a bootable partition. For XP you will also need the SATA drivers for the hard drive as XP does not have them included in the setup disc. If you do not have these, you will need to find them or just stop here, because you can go no further.

This is one of the biggest drawbacks of a "Legacy Free" system, you cannot change the SATA operation in BIOS like most other pc's. The system configuration is done through a windows utility from Toshiba.
