Question about Computers & Internet
I want to install windows 7 but don't know how to re-boot my toshiba m45-355 with a cd
I didn't know windows 7 had a CD to reinstall the operating system.
From what I know, the hard drive on your laptop should have two partitions, one of which is the operating system for windows 7 and the other partition is for your data.
From what I can remember, once you switch on your laptop, press either F12 or F2 or Esc to go to system sittings, I think that's where you wanna be.

hi check out this solution and let me know
To resolve this issue, start the computer from the Windows XP CD, start the Recovery Console, and then use the Bootcfg.exe tool to rebuild the Boot.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:
Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
Note The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.

You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

Since you have installed XP after installing windows 7 & vista, you have erased the boot manager of vista. To get it back, just download & install Vista Boot Pro from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/VistaBootPRO.shtml

SOURCE: my laptop won't boot from cd
if u can boot from CD rom without ur HD then ur booting is OK. BIOS has nothing to do with ur HD booting.....it's just that the machine starts from BIOS 1st...then looks for the HDD to load the Win boot files..else it goes to CD rom for the boot files...and so on...
check that the boot from HDD sequence is not disabled in BIOS.
keep this boot seq
1 CD ROM
4 USB HD
disable all 1 to 3 in above seq
connect a USB cd rom drive or a USB pen drive
ensure that ur Win disk is either in the USB CD rom drive or Win install files(copy of Win CD) are in a USB pen drive check if it boots from the pen drive....
after you boot....
connect your HDD now check if it can recognise the HD....else we can work on plan B

SOURCE: installing window 7 but cd
You can make the CD as the first boot device by going into the BIOS configuration and changing the CD as the first boot device and the hard disk as the second boot device.
After installing Windows, you can change the device boot up back to the hard disk but it is not necessary.
