Reinstallation with recovery disk

My Toshiba Satellite 5200 will not recognize the original recovery CD and will not start when booted from the CD Drive. Can I just go and format the C-Drive and will it then reinstall properly? Or how can I change the DMI so it will accept the Disk?

I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.

Toshiba no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key


try booting from a Windows installation disc. Choose the repair installation option. If this does not work, you may have to erase (format) your whole drive and start over again by reinstalling Windows from scratch.

Before erasing the drive, you might want to pull it out, put as a second drive in another working computer or inside a USB hard drive case and download all of your information from it. Otherwise you may have a mess on your hands with lost data/documents/photos.

Hello, here are the steps to resetting your computer.



Reinstall Windows from a Disk



1 Turn on your Toshiba Satellite. Insert your recovery disk or the original Windows operating system DVD

into the Satellite's CD/DVD drive. Turn off the computer.



2 Turn on the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F12 key on your keyboard to access the Boot Menu. (Note: Some Toshiba models may tell you to press "C" to boot

from the CD-ROM). The screen will display boot for this boot up session only.



3 Use the arrow keys to navigate. Select the CD-ROM/DVD drive to highlight it. Press "Enter." Be aware that this setting is for this session only; it is not a permanent change.



4 Allow the computer to start up. Follow the onscreen instructions for reinstalling the operating system from the disk.



Reinstall from a Recovery Partition



1 Boot up the Toshiba Satellite. In the first few seconds while it is starting up, press and hold the F8 key. This will begin the "Advanced Boot Options" menu.



2 Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate the menu. Move the keys to select "Repair Your Computer." Press "Enter."



3 Select your language and keyboard; click "Next."



4 Select your Windows user name from the drop-down menu. Enter your password if required. Click "OK." This will begin the "System Recovery Options" menu.



5 Select the Toshiba Recovery Wizard and follow the onscreen instructions. The Toshiba Recovery Wizard will delete all existing data on the hard drive and reinstall Windows.



Hope this helps!

Formatting problems.


Remove any 3.5" diskette from the diskette-drive in the computer.

Insert the Recovery Disk into the CD-ROM device.

Restart your computer, and *FORCE* it to *FIRST* try to "boot" from the CD-ROM drive, rather than trying to boot from the 3.5" diskette or from your C: drive.

It is not clear what you mean by restore here... do you want to salvage you r personal data on laptop or just want to restore the OS... which you said you have installed XP.
the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.

I can not make my recovery disc.


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!!
