Restart and get into bios setup
then on bios page set to default press f10 save and exit
then with recovery in drive restart press f7 and choose option boot from cd
are you sure you are using a recovery cd that came with your system and not a driver cd for the mother board
if you are still having a problem let me know and let me know any error messages
don;t forget to rate me

Toshiba A250-s4707 only work in safe mode windows7, becase freze en normal mode


you need to work out what is causing the issue. did you recently install something that caused this to happen? try a system restore to a checkpoint before the error occured but be aware you will lose files unless you create a cd image of the system.

Application error when running recovery disk


hi

Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image

Recovery Problem


  1. Check you are really using the right CDs
  2. Using another computer with a CD Writer and a blank CD, download this file:
toshdmi10.exe

Run the program, it will explain how to make a boot CD which you will use to start your computer and fix the problem that makes it say Wrong Machine.
Once this is done you can use the recovery cd's again.
