Hi there.
I'm sorry to tell you that when you reformatted the drive you deleted the recovery partition and all the recovery information on it, this is why the recovery disk creator cannot be launched and is giving you an error.
Thankfully for you, you created a recovery disk before you wiped the drive so this is your only way of restoring the system so make a back-up copy of the recovery disk you made and keep it safe as the problem cannot be solved because you deleted the recovery partition.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

YOU ARE SCREWED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...Unless you have a reboot disk that came with your software. Follow all instructions in the manual and on the CD when you reinstall. Otherwise, you are totally and utterly screwed with no options.

I am trying to recover a Toshiba Satellite Pro A210-EZ2203X with the recovery discs. I got the wrong machine error. In the meantime I installed a copy of Windows XP home that I had for another computer....


OK were the Recovery Discs made by you or did they come with the computer? If you made them I've seen the user created recovery discs fail countless times. Normally there might be a partitioned disc on your hard drive that has the Toshiba Recovery on it. You would get to hit by hitting a function key when you boot the machine. But you might have wiped it out once you installed Windows XP if you formatted the drive.

I think you are going to need an Operating System Disk that has the same operating system that came with your computer. Your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) key is probably on the bottom of the laptop or insde the battery case. Once you load the operating system it will prompt you at some point for the Key on the COA sticker so it can activate windows. The key is a series of 5 letters and number combinations. Hopefully it is readable on your sticker. If you have Windows Vista Home Premium you can't reinstall with a Windows Vista Home Basic. You need your exact operating system.

Can I use a Toshiba recovery disk for A210 series if I have an A505 series? They are both Windows Vista


That is about the only thing thew same about them other than the name Toshiba. The A505 is an Intel Processor, the A210 has an AMD processor. They have completely different video graphics chipsets, audio, and LAN configurations, Assuming that the A210 disc will load in the A505, you would not get proper video, audio or LAN drivers. Recovery disks are made for the machine they are bundled with. You can try, but don't be surprised if your result is less than optimal.

You will find all the drivers for the Toshiba A210 laptop at the link below, if there is no driver listed on the website for your operating system (Windows 7), then it is likely that the camera is not compatible with the new OS.

Hi,

What your friends have told you is correct for newer Toshiba models, they do have a "recovery partition"

Here is how you recover the OS >>>>>>

1, Make sure the laptop is turned off.
2, Hold down the zero (0) key and turn the laptop on, keep it pressed in until you see the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" screen.
3, Choose the "Recovery of Factory Default Software" and click next.
4, The "Recovery of Factory Default Software" will appear.
5, Choose the "Recover to out-of-box-state" you will then get a message that all your data will be lost. Click next and the recovery process will start.

Once complete you will see a message that the HDD has been recovered.

Before you start the recovery process its a good idea to back up any data you have unless you not bothered or have already done so.



Reagrds.

Partition


A recovery partition is mainly a waste of hard drive space. Instead, click Start, All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Backup Status and Configuration. Fallow the instructions.
System Restore is also a hard drive hog. There is a way to limit it to a user specified hard drive allocation...

Recovery Problem


Go to Microsofts website and download the Windows XP setup discs. You will need 6 floppies to complete this task. Then change the boot order to floppy, or USB floppy and you are good to go. It will start the recovery of the system. Read through microsofts how to section for more assistance!
