Try using the GParted Program in any Linux Operating System to format your drives. If you never played with Linux. Then you can figure it out and ask me anyquestions

In my opinion linux is better.

I have replaced the hard drive in my daughters A215-S5808. I am trying to recover from the Recovery disk and I keep getting the error mesage 03-EEEE-0000 and press ok to shut down.


The below fix may or may not work but needs to be followed closely.

1. Boot the Recovery disc or HDD image and select System Recovery Options.
2. Follow the prompts until you get to the menu and then select a command prompt.
3. Copy the \zzimages\zzimages directory for all recovery discs to a temp directory on the hard drive (c:\temp).
4. Change to the Bin directory on the first recovery disc and run "tosimagex /apply c:\temp\preinst.swm 1 c:\ /ref c:\temp\preinst*.swm" without the quotes.

That is it. It will take a long time to copy the files since they are large and a long time to run the image program, half an hour on my computer. Also, based on Imagex syntax, it looks like the "1" in the command above might be replaced with another number for models that come with more then one Windows version on the same recovery media.

Recovery disk wont work because of preinst4.swm


you probably need a functioning Windows Operating system to copy the disk.
If you havent had it for too long, you could try sending it back to have the O/S and other original software reinstalled.

PREINST6.SWM missing; PREINST9.SWM missing; Error:10-FC06-0002


Means pre-installion is missing. Which means yoou either have to Reinstall a fresh copy of your windows or your can reinstall your windows by just repairing the files. Its always good to make a recovery disk after every install. If you haven't tried it already restart your pc press f8 as the scene pops up and go to Last good configuration.

The fact that you have an error of missing file whit the restore DVD indicate that the problem could be hardware. Especially if you already did a restore whit the same DVD.

I would suggest that you have a faulty memory issue (RAM), you can run a memory diagnostic whit memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/ download the bootable cd and run it if you see RED readings your memory is defective if not let it run for a couple of loops to make sure.
I'm pretty shure you will see red results, if so take it to your local computer specialist to get it replace or order yourself some.

ERROR INSTALLING PREINST3.SWM


The work around for this is to take the Toshiba restore disk and do a dvd copy disk to disk and use the copies to restore the computer. I had the same problem and the disk would not read correctly. I called Toshiba and they were no help. I saw a post on another web log and they suggested copying the origianl restore disks. They copies ran without a problem.
