SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A215-S5849 Laptop -

take out the battery and ac adapter for 5 minutes, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, plug back in the ac adapter and turn on, try entering the bios.

if the problem remains and since you are unable to boot from any device, you would either have to send this laptop to a repairer, or remove the hard drive from the laptop, use a adapter to connect it to a desktop machine or to another laptop and begin the windows setup on another machine, or install windows on another machine (may cause a blue screen when switched to another machine)

or make the hard drive bootable, copy windows setup files into the drive and install from the drive.

How can i go in boot option


Normally when you power on your Toshiba Satellite laptop it attempts to boot the operating system installed on its hard drive.
In some instances you may want to boot the Satellite laptop from a different device, such as an operating system installation CD or a USB drive.
The boot order doesn't have to permanently be set to the hard drive.
It's possible to access the boot order before the operating system loads and change which device is set to boot first.

Turn off the Toshiba Satellite laptop.
Turn it back on immediately and wait for the "press the F2 key to enter Setup" entry to show up on the screen.
Press the "F2" key to access the Toshiba Satellite's BIOS menu.
Use the right arrow key to navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Boot."

Scroll down to the option labeled "Boot Priority" and tap Enter.
Check through the list of devices and locate the specific device you want to use to Boot your Toshiba laptop, such as "CD-ROM," "USB" or "LAN."

Highlight the name of the device in the list and then tap Enter to make it the top boot priority.
Use the right arrow key again to scroll over to the "Exit" BIOS menu.

Tap the down arrow key to highlight the "Save and Exit" option.
Press Enter to save the new boot order and restart your Toshiba Satellite laptop.

Repeat the procedure when you want to change the boot order back to its original setting.

Leave the bios and save the settings.

Place your windows cd in the drive and reboot.
Now you can install windows again.

Toshiba satellite l750-16l "a disk read error occurred"will a new hard drive fix


You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Need to update bios toshiba satellite c660,using ubuntu live dvd, will not boot hard drive, all normal recovery options used up


Hi There,
There are currently no easy ways to update a bios through linux at all - including live cd's. Your best bet is to make a bios update USB stick (or floppy depending on the age of the computer)
Here's a link to those instructions:
http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-boot-usb-stick.htm
Alternatively, speaking from my own experience with a similar situation, you can take the hard drive out, use it in place of the usb stick, boot from it, update your bios, and go from there.

Boot from usb


Sounds like the boot order menu is what you have. Set the boot order menu to try other devices before the hard drive. (Example: CD/DVD drive, floppy; if present, USB devices, hard drive). You should have a default key for accessing the boot menu (usually f11 or f12). Hit this key and choose the USB option. Make sure the device you want to boot to is already connected before you turn on the laptop.
