well i had the same error on my toshiba...i spent literally 56 sleppless hours on the problem after giving up on the last 48 hour stint about 3 weeks ago...i installed a freash copy of xp...then used gparted live cd (linux small distro for partitioning hdds)to make a 10 gig partition in ntfs format....then i searched tiny vista and downloaded the torrent....that error is another way of saying you have messed up your bootmgr for vista..and it could have been a ton of things that did ruined it but none the less...after the torrent was downloaded (i know its not a legal copy but i used it just to fix my bootmgr) it has something to do with the way it sets up vista premium on your hard drive that fixes the boot problem.....and befor anyone says theres other ways to do it.....this is for extreme cases were you cannot afford a new hard drive and cannot get your factory install cd's to fix the problem ..... this is worth a shot in any case. .....forgot to mention that i used my windows xp partition to firstly download dvd decrypter and a copy of tiny vista (for you that dont know tiny vista fits on a 700mb cd and is remastered to install on its own with no help from you what so ever...then when i suggest deleting it from your hard drive and installing your own vista copy because after all all you needed to do was fix the boot... again..this is the only thing that worked for me other than buying a new hard drive i tried 30 different things and i garuntee i have heard it all..it was by accident that i found out this would fix the problem with oem instalations

Error code 10 XXXXXXX is related to hardware. It is default code generated by device manager when the operating system failed to determine which specific error code to return after an error occurs.
Error code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware issues and to compatibility issues between hardware and the software.
To troubleshoot the code 10, go to control panel>system> device manager and check if any of the hardware display a yellow “!” or a red “stop”.
1). Update the hardware device driver from either Microsoft or device vendor web site.
If the device is preinstalled on the computer, visit the computer manufacturer’s website.
2). Make sure the device is enabled in the computer BIOS. You need the system documentation, if you don’t know how to do it.
3). Disable any advanced feature of the device.
4). Install the most up to date service pack and any other updates.

This error comes up if the toshiba recovery cannot recognise the file system and partitions. try removing all partitions using the fdisk utility or a windows XP CD and then run the recovery.

you will most likely have to go into the recovery console to fix the problem or even re-install.
The other two solutions are to either boot up in safe mode to correct the problem by trying to revert back to a saved well working time, or take out pci cards and reboot always taking out another pci card until you find the problem.
if nothing works, re-install or fix in recovery console. <<< or >>>
at re-install, choose repair windows.

This can be caused by several things but you have to get past this point to actually figure it out. It is a software problem ie windows, a program or a virus or even an update that is the cause. If you just installed a program or update then this is what I'd look at first. You would also want to run an antivirus boot scan.
To get into windows you will have to get into SAFEMODE. When you first push the power button push and hold F8 down. It might complain but I found on Satellites if you don't hold it down it just seems to ignore the F8 key. This will pop up a menu and at the top will be the option of booting into SAFEMODE. This boots into windows but doesn't load any drivers or programs so the offending software isn't started or run. Your windows will look different but will look right when you reboot into normal windows. Once it is running you can uninstall any recently programs if you feel that is the problem or restore the system to a previous point where it was running properly.
System restore is found under start-programs-accessories-system tools
To untinstall any programs you think might be the cause use the add remove software found under control panel.
Once you have got rid of what might be causing this then simply reboot and your should now boot into normal windows. If it goes back to the blue screen then you didn't get the cause.You can try a earlier restore point or remove other programs or updates. If those don;t fix it then you have to consider using your Toshiba system disk to restore the computer back to what it was like when your first got it. This is drastic as it wipes out everything on your hard drive. If you can get into safe mode or safe mode with network you can use a memory stick to save off your documents, music, pictures, favourites, email addresses and anything else you need to. Your cd/dvd will not work in safe mode but the usb drives do.
While this is one of those annoying problems it isn't that serious but to fix it you need to be able to see a lot of information so all I can give you here is a few things to look for. At some point you will either fix it, or have restore it or take it to a shop but without seeing it I wouldn't be able to accurately tell you when that point is.
