Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 Notebook
Yesterday I went to re format my laptop and deleted all the partitions on the drive, including the recovery partition. When the vista install reached the last step it just sat there and did nothing. I think the problem is that we used a CD that did not come with the computer (the computer came with nothing) and to reformat you need to use the recovery partition!
Where did you get your copy of vista? is it yours did you borrow it?
lets try to reformat one more time. your recovery partition is gone now so make sure you format the entire disk. when it asks you to confirm erasing formatting etc. don't choose the quick format, if it asks. do it the slow way, less chance of error.
let me know
