Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

What are the steps of formatting toshiba tecra M9 using window XP Recovery Disk?


If you are using the original XP Recovery Disk for Toshiba, you have to set your first boot to CD/DVD Rom from our Bios setting or use the 1st boot Function Utility when booting up.

If your 1st boot is your CD/DVD Rom, the Recovery Disk will boot up, and your just follow the wizard to finish the OS installation back go the default setting.

Hope it helps.

How do i recover my system with back up disk


Insert the recovery CD in your CD-ROM,Set your BIOS to boot from CD-ROM,then follow the Instruction.

That's it.

Note : Restoring your system with Recovery disk will erase your entire Operating drive data.Make sure you backup your data (if you think it has  imporatnt data) before going for recovery.

You can use any Linux Live CD distribution.But if you are not familiar with Linux.Download "Hiren's Boot CD"

Here is the link

http://www.hirensbootcd.net/

Just clikc the download button and extract the file using Winzip or Winrar.

Burn the ISO files with Nero or MagicISO or PowerISO in a CD.

Boot the system using that CD (set the First Boot Device as CD-DVd ROM in BIOS).

Select "Start Mini Windows XP"

then copy all the important files to another media.

That's it.

Restore factory settings


what i would do is go into dos. If you cant get into dos find a windows 98 setup disk 3.5" this will have the dos files that will allow the computer to reconize a generic cd rom. This should allow you to get your recovery disk working. Your software problem could of created a firmware problem also. Not reconizing the cd rom. This solution will provide the basics to get your cd rom loading the recovery disk for you. If you have questions or more problems feel free to contact me and i will take you through it step by step
