It is if you have acces to another pc, not so if you havent, you need a program called nlite, and an original copy of windows xp, plus you will need the sata drivers for your system, what you can do is make a backup copy of windows with enlite and add your drivers into the boot system or any drivers for that matter its up to you how you want windows to install, if you download ENLITE, checkout the readme file, its verry helpful and can expalin it much better than i could, hope this helps

My laptop "toshiba tablet portage


If your computer is still under warranty you can contact the Toshiba support site and order recovery media. They will refer you to the company that sells them. The cost is about 45 dollars + taxes.
Even if your computer is no longer under warranty you may still be able to obtain the recovery medias.

Failing that, you may consider buying a retail version of the Windows Operating system and install it on the computer. Some custom buttons may not work, and you will have to go to the Toshiba support web site to download the drivers for your computer. Before buying a version of Windows, check the Toshiba site for your computer and your intented OS (WinXP 32/64, Vista 32/64, or Win 7 32/64) )to see if they have drivers.

Restore win 7 from system image on toshiba portage m200


This should apply to other brands and models...
the original problem: bad hard disk, need to restore from win 7 image disks however The portage m200 lacks an optical drive and cannot be booted from usb (only options are to boot from LAN or from a specially created SD card).

Solution:
you will need a second pc that can boot from an on board or peripheral optical drive. Swap the second pc's hard drive for the one that you are restoring. Now boot the second pc from the restore disk and follow the onscreen instructions. Once completed the pc will try to reboot and you will get an error about how windows couldn't repair start-up. Now power down and swap the hard drive back to the portage. You should now be up and running, much easier than trying to create a boot-able sd image or boot from a PXE server.

Windows xp wont work on 3480ct


the 3480ct has 12 gb of storage. It may not be enough for xp to work efficiently. Other specs. may not allow xp to work on this model computer. Try Windows 98 or Windows 95 which have less stringent requirements, if it's worth going this route.

with that your data will be saved.

try a bootable cd of win XP & install os again without formating C: Drive, just overwrite the os instalation in same drive.

maybe after that your problem will be solved

How to install win xp in toshiba portage r200 laptop


This is resolved by installing Intel Storage Manager drivers through "F6" option on XP Setup. YOU MUST HAVE AN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DISK (A Drive)...as the Portege doesn't come with one...and XP does not support USB or CD ROM for this particular function.

How can you Reset Portage 7000c BIOS PW?


Hi,

You could try and pop out the system battery and let it sit for a week and see if the password gets wiped that way. BIOS is EEPROM and that means data is stored even after power is removed, but if it sits for some time information like passwords and time are lost and need to be reentered in.

Thanks,
Armymason

If you didn't get a maintenance disk with the PC contact the manufacturer's support. They sometimes put a backed up copy on the hard drive itself, if this is the case they will be able to tell you how to access it =)
