Tosheiba laptop vista recovery disk won't load. I put image files on c drive try to start try to ruin tosimagex new errors


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
What you have to do is to change the boot sequence on boot option. Restart pc then hit f2 go to boot option and choose DVD/CD to be your first boot option then press f10 restart and it should load automatically. Check your recovery if its running on other pc. If not. call your manufacturer and get a new recovery disc.
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

If you have a recovery disk for windows Vista you can downgrade.

Follow this trouble shooting:

Boot from Disk

1. Insert the Recovery CD in to the ODD of the computer
2. Turn off the computer
3. Turn it back on and keep tapping F12 to access the boot menu
4. Once you're in the boot menu select ODD/CD/DVD and keep tapping enter until the file is loading
5. Just follow on the standard procedures of installation until it finished.
6. reboot the system
7. now ready to use...

Hope it helps you.. please rate it.

Toshiba Satellite with no OS will not restore to factory with CD


go to bios settings by pressing F2 on start and choose under the boot device to first boot from cd ..this will make it choose the boot from cd first ...and get into recovery mode if this is the kinda disk you are using ..
Another thing is that many laptops came with recovery cd but this will not have a operation system on it ...in this case you have to use a operation system cd first and after that restore drivers and settings with the recovery cd ..Be sure you use the same operation system it came with ...so in this way you can use the drivers from the recovery one...if you change for example from Vista that came with ...to XP the drivers may not be on that disk if it was on vista from the manufacturer...
so ...if you do not have a bootable disk with operation system just go to pirate bay ..and download an image with the operating system you need and burn it using a program like Nero to make it bootable ...after that just run it first (boot from cd also ) and will work

Restoring factory settings on a toshiba satellite ?? i was playing around with resizing the partitions and i goofed up and deleted the boot info bought a vista disk and installed windows vista. but i would...


Im not sure what exactly you have in the recovery partition ..but from what I know ..this is accessible by pressing F11 on boot ..and the info stored in it will restore the computer ..if you had vista in it before...probably will reinstall it ..so first just try to boot..and press f11 during the device displaying ..just like entering bios..and follow the instructions if it works..
another way is to install a clean operation system ...(the one that you use to have ..) by booting from cd ..(this will allow you to rearrange the partitions during install...in the moment when it sees previous OS ..and ask to choose a location for install..
after a clean install use the recovery cd that came with the laptop..
But..first try the recovery from that partition..if f11 do not work let me know and I will make some research in this matter ..

Need a toshiba portege R500 vista recovery disk


Toshiba Factory Reset
a couple of ways to do that 1) if you have the recovery CDs supplied with the PC - then you can use these - put the CD into the drive and when it boots follow the instructions 2) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 3) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148

Recovery console key convination for a laptop?


Hi there.
Restart the PC and hit F2 while it boots up, this will take you into the bios, look for boot devices and set the CD to the first boot device, save the changes and exit the bios. The compuer will restart and boot from the CD drive.
Once the OS has installed go back into the bios and set the HDD (hard drive) to first boot device.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Not opening my laptop


Here's what you need to do to fix it: Find some way to get Partition Table Doctor (http://www.ptdd.com/download.htm) and put it on either a live boot CD or from a secondary hard drive installation. Once you have that, Scan the partition for errors and select fix boot... Then if you're running Vista get a copy of Vista Recovery Disc (http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/window... burn yourself a copy of the disc, and run it at the boot of your computer. Once the cd is loaded, click on REPAIR WINDOWS, select COMMAND PROMPT, then use this command: bootrec.exe /fixboot

If that doesn't work use: bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
and see if your windows boots.

IF you have windows XP, boot up with the Windows XP cd, select Repair (R), go into the command prompt (selecting which windows installation you want to modify) and then type this command: fixboot c:

See if your computer boots now.... The important thing is to try to repair your boot which has been deleted or corrupted, that is why it gives the error: err2err3

Try different recovery tools like Table Doctor http://www.ptdd.com/ in conjunction with your recovery cds (windows xp installation CD and Windows Vista Recovery Disc)
