Toshiba a105 recovery disks display

I bought an upgrade of vista home premium to install on my Toshiba A105-s4064. well, I didn't realize i needed to keep the original windows xp MCE. I erased my hard disk with disk 1 of 2, but i never put in disk 2 (i don't know what i was thinking!), before i started a clean install of Vista. Now i want MCE 2005 back. But when I use my Toshiba A100/A105 recovery disks i recieve the following: "WRONG MACHINE" Disks are for A105 machine this is an A100 machine. My product key sticker is no longer attatched to my laptop. What can I do to get a full recovery to the out of box state?

If you already formatted the hard drive;there's n o way for you to get restore image of mce 2005;you have to call the toshiba tech and send your har drive to load the restore image again.u can also try to tap 0 while rebooting your access the restore image if u still have it instead of using the recovery disc.

Looking free download toshiba A105-S4074

I'm going to guess that you want the installation disks for this Toshiba. I can't help you with that as any unauthorised copies are not legal. Microsoft do not allow free copies of installation disks.

Toshiba sell the recovery disks for around about £18 UKP Call their technical support line to order them. Or you could install a vanilla copy of the operating system and download and install the drivers from

You can not download the software CD but you may be able to find most of the drivers and supporting software on toshiba's website. To get the actual software CD / recovery disk, you will have to contact toshiba. They will charge you about $40 for it.

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!!
