Question about Toshiba Tecra M2-S730 Notebook
Depending on how they shipped the unit you may have a restore dvd, a restore parition or were supposed to make the restore disks.
If this is Vista then prepare to swear at it and toshiba (a lot). If you have the restore dvd then you just boot from it and follwo instructions. If you have the parition you hold down a key such as F11 when booting to bring up the restore. If you created the restore dvd's you just boot from those. Here is where you may have problems. The vista partition may have been installed in a corrupt format and when you made the back dvd's they would have the same corrupt information. The end result is that niether one will work.I've run into this a few times and not just with Toshiba. If this is the case you can either order a restore dvd from Toshiba or find the correct version install dvd. You do have a legitimate serial number so you just need the proper dvd.
I did enough of these to get a OEM corporate install dvd but for some people it was easier and cheaper to install XP.
If you can you should back up your documents, email adress's, pictures and anything else you want to save. When you restore it usually wipes off the hard drive so you loose anything you have created or saved.
