You need the proper recovery cds or a vista cd
to reload on hard drive
I'm guessing the harddrive you added came without vista on it
those cds hold the drivers which then get installed to the harddrive.
do you know anyone you can borrow a vista cd from
otherwise i would suggest waiting for toshiba to send you your disk

well i had the same error on my toshiba...i spent literally 56 sleppless hours on the problem after giving up on the last 48 hour stint about 3 weeks ago...i installed a freash copy of xp...then used gparted live cd (linux small distro for partitioning hdds)to make a 10 gig partition in ntfs format....then i searched tiny vista and downloaded the torrent....that error is another way of saying you have messed up your bootmgr for vista..and it could have been a ton of things that did ruined it but none the less...after the torrent was downloaded (i know its not a legal copy but i used it just to fix my bootmgr) it has something to do with the way it sets up vista premium on your hard drive that fixes the boot problem.....and befor anyone says theres other ways to do it.....this is for extreme cases were you cannot afford a new hard drive and cannot get your factory install cd's to fix the problem ..... this is worth a shot in any case. .....forgot to mention that i used my windows xp partition to firstly download dvd decrypter and a copy of tiny vista (for you that dont know tiny vista fits on a 700mb cd and is remastered to install on its own with no help from you what so ever...then when i suggest deleting it from your hard drive and installing your own vista copy because after all all you needed to do was fix the boot... again..this is the only thing that worked for me other than buying a new hard drive i tried 30 different things and i garuntee i have heard it all..it was by accident that i found out this would fix the problem with oem instalations

Error code 10 XXXXXXX is related to hardware. It is default code generated by device manager when the operating system failed to determine which specific error code to return after an error occurs.
Error code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware issues and to compatibility issues between hardware and the software.
To troubleshoot the code 10, go to control panel>system> device manager and check if any of the hardware display a yellow “!” or a red “stop”.
1). Update the hardware device driver from either Microsoft or device vendor web site.
If the device is preinstalled on the computer, visit the computer manufacturer’s website.
2). Make sure the device is enabled in the computer BIOS. You need the system documentation, if you don’t know how to do it.
3). Disable any advanced feature of the device.
4). Install the most up to date service pack and any other updates.
