You can do both, but what I sugggest is try Toshiba recovery wizard first so you don't have to run into a lot of question during recovery process.
Toshiba recovery will give your computer first look as when you first bought it.

Cant reinstall XP asks for restore plus cd!!!


Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Support.

According to your problem description,it seems that you formatted your computer hard disk by connecting it to another PC.If it is yes.
Your Hard Disk completely formatted along with your windows drive i.e C drive. So you have to reinstall operating system by using recovery or restore plus CD supplied along with your PC.Restore plus cd means a CD which is having operating system files,and needed when operating system fails to boot.If you purchased Genuine operating system along with your PC,you should have recovery or operating system CD.
if you are not having recovery CD,you can use windows XP CD for fresh installatin of your operating system

I think it helps.

If you any difficulty leave a comment,we were happy to assist you.


Have a Nice Day!

I have a satellite U300 toshiba computer and i'm on the boot menu


Hi,
If your just wanting to boot into Windows then choose 1. HDD Toshiba.
If your wanting to reinstall the operating system with your recovery disks then you will need disk 1 in the CD drive and when the menu comes up choose 3. CD/DVD.



Regards.

Recovery pro lost power during my recovery of origonal settings


You can still install windows xp without the recovery disc. Just buy a windows xp installer then download the v2 premier driver in the net.

I dont have recovery CD for my laptop


Being that you don't have the recovery cd, I would probably do the following (in this order):

1. Do a System Recovery (go to Start > Help and Support > type in System Recovery in the search field > look for Run System Recovery Wizard)

2. If the above didn't fix my problem, then I would try to determine if it was a hardware issue (bad RAM, fan, processor, etc) or if it was definitely a software issue (operating system is kaput, virus, etc...)

3. Contact Toshiba and find out how much it would cost to get another Recovery CD.

4. If it costed more than $100 dollars (and you're a little computer inclined) then I would buy myself a fresh Windows XP Home Edition OEM version (runs about $90 if not less)

BUT... before sticking in that cd, make sure that you download the device drivers or back up your device drivers for your system (network driver, graphics drivers, chipset drivers).. once you've backed up those things onto a cd or disk, then I would go ahead and put in a fresh copy of Windows XP and reformat the computer.

Once thats done, you can put in that back cd you made and have the computer find the drivers on your disc when it says "New Hardware Found..." and just make sure you have it search your disc drive.

IF it doesn't cost much to get a Recover CD from Toshiba, then by all means, get it and put that bad boy in. Of course, when formatting anything, back up your files that you need (address book, documents, etc) and then reformat with the CD.

I do not know how to use my product recovery disk on my toshiba satellite


Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD. Select either a Complete Recovery (this recreates all the partitions and formats each one, this may reboot the system several times depending on the size of the HDD and the number of partitions) or Standard Recovery (this just formats drive C:). This will then restore the operating system as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools and Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.

I made a system recovery of Vista, then ran it and it worked, I installed Unix Ubuntu and decided I didn't like it. I went to re-install vista using my system recovery and it failed, do you know how I can...


Hi!

I understand that you had Vista installed on your computer, then installed Ubuntu, decided you didn't like it, and now want to reinstall Vista, but your system recovery disc does not work, correct?

From you description, I presume you did a full install of Ubuntu, which will require a full reinstallation of Vista to restore it. If you still have your original Vista install disc, load it into your CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts to reinstall Windows. If you can't find your install disc, or if you were never provided one, contact Microsoft's customer support and ask them how to get a new one. You can also ask them about getting new system recovery discs, which could also help revive your system.
