You don't need a start up disk from toshiba. A regular Windows instalation CD/DVD is enough.If your computer was wiped, there's a chance the Toshiba startup disk will not start either.
If you use an OEM version of your Windows (have a windows key sticker on your laptop), then download an OEM Toshiba version. Use this LINK for more information.
When you have the Windows CD, you just need to repartition the disk and reinstall windows.

SOURCE: I am trying to wipe clean and reinstall xp

No the disk you have has all of the factory default installs on it. If you are having trouble getting the PC to reboot meaning load xp on start-up check the pcs bios setting to verify that the hard disk is set to be first boot priority. If it defaulted to "CD" then it may not boot into xp. The other item to check is completely remove the battery for about a minute then reinstall. Then get into the pc bios to check boot priority.
When running the recovery disk make sure you selected the complete reinstall with format option. Do not try the repair installation or fix installation option. I suspect that you may have reinstalled over your old installation which is causing the problem u mentioned

My laptop gets the error pxe-e61 error and I do not have a bootable disk


Check your boot order. If it is set to network you'll get this error. It could also be due to bad cable, etc.
Error PXE E61 Media test failure check cable

It's a good idea to get a bootable USB that can run some utilities, as well.

Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

Bootmgr is missing


If Office Depot "cleaned" your hard disk, then there is nothing remaining on it. You will need to load the recovery media cd/dvd's you created or purchased in the proper order to have them restore the computer back to its initial configuration when you purchased it. Put the first CD/DVD into the drive and then power off the machine & power it back on. The installation should begin. I'm sad OD wiped out your mothers drive.

I wiped clean my toshiba satellite pro p300 and tried to load operating system ,screen say's press enter to continue loading, when i press enter screen shows cannot find hard drive etc etc can anyone...


If you insert your Vista or Win7 disc into the DVD drive and boot form that, make sure that the BIOS is set to recognise the hard disc. The OS disc will do the rest. If it cannot find the hard disc, maybe the hard disc is faulty.
When you are successful, go to toshiba.com and download the latest drivers and firmware for the BIOS.
Hope that helps.

You may need to re-install the operating system all over again as you had tried to restore your computer using Restore Disc but failed. In these cases, you will have to try to wipe all your data and install OS once again.

Toshiba A205-S5879 laptop won't boot


Please resort to your installation discs that came originally with your computer package. Those install discs can be used as recovery discs. Try to do an OS repair install from those discs. If the problem still persists, I would suggest to wipe and format the hard disk and start a clean installation again. I understand your warranty expired but if it was only let's say three days ago, it should still be disputed. If your new installation doesn't work either, then I would suggest you contact your supplier to work out a replacement of your hard disk. Good luck.

Toshiba satalite pro L40 wont boot


go to bios setup then find the boot sequenceand set the 1st priority to dvd drive then 2nd hdd save changes then restart. If the problem still persists, the disc you're inserting might not be a bootable disk. Try to secure a bootable os disk. Thanks for the inquiry and feel free to ask if there's still any problems.
