I have a toshibasatellite 4080xcdt laptop and i erased my hard drive. my computer keeps aking for a system disk. what kinda of disk do i need?


Hi,

The disc you have will be the drivers disc, not the windows disc, did you not burn a set of recovery discs when you first got your pc? It should not have deleted the recovery partition from the hard drive while doing a destructive recovery; it should only have wiped the c partition and left the other alone unless you set it to do both. If your recovery partition is gone the only thing you can do is contact Toshiba and ask for a set of Recovery Discs or buy a new copy of windows.

Hi,

The recovery disk consist of 2 DVD, the first is the System Disk (this is first disk to insert), once finished loading, it will ask to insert the second CD (Application and Drivers disk), if in case both are not working, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also place order for a set of Recovery disk by calling Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Windiws cannot access the disk


try using the program Killdisk. This will permanently erase everything that has ever been written to the HD. Whenever I run into this problem, I run this on the HD and Presto, setup now recognizes the drive.

http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm

However, if this is a SATA drive, sometimes certain drivers must be loaded first. These drivers can be found at the manufacturer website. Once downloaded, you will have to use a floppy disk to load them (or usb flash drive if it is set up as bootable device). To load the drivers once downloaded and stored on bootable device, you will have to run winxp setup and press F6 when prompted at the bottom of the screen to load third party raid or scsi drivers. When you press F6, nothing different will happen. Setup files will continue to copy and setup will again try to look for your hard drive. When it does not find it, you will be prompted to look for drivers on your bootable device (the floppy/usb drive you loaded the drivers on).

Just note, after using killdisk, data recovery will not be possile for the partition you erased by using killdisk. What this means: Everytime your format a HD using Fdisk or windows setup, nothing is technicaly erased until that particular spot on the HD is written over, that is how data recovery businesses restore lost or erased data. Once you run killdisk, it re-writes over all data making it completely invisible to partition recovery programs. If you are not worried about any data on the disk, then this should be no concern for you, just some info.

If this does not help, I will be happy to walk you through the manual HD setup in winxp setup procedure, it is quite easy once you find what you need.

Hope this helped!

Operating System Installation


If you dont have the USB external CDROM then best thing to do would be to install using another laptop. Make sure you install the chipset and video card drivers.
