You need to change the boot sequence. Power on the computer and look for F12 on the screen. It will only be there for a few seconds. While it is there, hit F12 and select the boot drive.

Put Recovery Disk 1 in the CD/DVD drive, then power off your computer, unplug everything from the unit including the AC, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and then AC, power on, at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F2' to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, now at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F12' to enter 'Boot Sequence', with the up and down arrow keys to select 'Optical Disk Drive' or 'DVD/CD Drive', you will then see 'Press any key to boot from CD/DVD drive...' with the dots counting down, press any key before the count down finishes. Assuming you get back to the Toshiba Recovery Utility menu, select the 'factory default' choice, and return your unit to its out-of-the-box state.

How can i go in boot option


Normally when you power on your Toshiba Satellite laptop it attempts to boot the operating system installed on its hard drive.
In some instances you may want to boot the Satellite laptop from a different device, such as an operating system installation CD or a USB drive.
The boot order doesn't have to permanently be set to the hard drive.
It's possible to access the boot order before the operating system loads and change which device is set to boot first.

Turn off the Toshiba Satellite laptop.
Turn it back on immediately and wait for the "press the F2 key to enter Setup" entry to show up on the screen.
Press the "F2" key to access the Toshiba Satellite's BIOS menu.
Use the right arrow key to navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Boot."

Scroll down to the option labeled "Boot Priority" and tap Enter.
Check through the list of devices and locate the specific device you want to use to Boot your Toshiba laptop, such as "CD-ROM," "USB" or "LAN."

Highlight the name of the device in the list and then tap Enter to make it the top boot priority.
Use the right arrow key again to scroll over to the "Exit" BIOS menu.

Tap the down arrow key to highlight the "Save and Exit" option.
Press Enter to save the new boot order and restart your Toshiba Satellite laptop.

Repeat the procedure when you want to change the boot order back to its original setting.

I have a Ntdetect Failed promt on toshiba p15-s479 laptop


LOL, sounds like you've got it trying to reboot from a Network or Lan first. Go back into the Bios and change the boot sequence to make the CD Drive your first boot option and the Hard Drive your second boot option.

You will want to boot from the CD to get the operating system installed. After it is installed be sure to remove the cd otherwise it will try to boot from it. Best option would be to go back into the bios and make the hard drive your first boot option after you get everything loaded.

You might be able to direct the system to boot from the cd as soon as you press the power button. Most systems will post an option to hit a certain key to get into the Bios or System Setup and a key to change the Boot order just for this one time.

Keyboard problem with Toshiba Satellite Pro 480CDT (running Win98 SE)


I found a BIOS upgrade download for the Toshiba Satellite Pro 480 on Toshiba's website under the archived old models listing. I downloaded it on a different machine and saved it to a USB which I then used to copy to the problem laptop and ran it there.
