Question about Toshiba PC Desktops
Thanks for getting back with information:
I have put together steps on what can be done now one is for system restore and the other pc restore in vista. System restore is the most common one in Vista used by popular demand it seems at times. I hope you have the Vista installation DVD because you will need this to do it.
First you will want to get into you bios and change your boot order so the DVD starts first. Then once the DVD starts access WinRE from the Windows Vista installation DVD is easy. Once it boots up you will be asked for your information.
Make sure that your information is correct and click next. WARNING Whatever you do, do not click the Install Now link or you will end up re-installing Vista. You will want to, click the Repair Your Computer link found in the lower left corner of the screen.
Then you will see a screen asking you to select the OS installation that you want to repair. Your screen may be a blank operating system list if the OS resides on a disk array that Windows does not have a built-in driver for. But, you are given the chance to provide WinRE with a device driver before continuing.
So, if your target operating system is not listed, don't give up hope nothing is lost. Even if the operating systems are not listed, you can still click next and gain access to WinRE.
When you click Next, Windows takes you to the main WinRE screen. There, WinRE gives you a lot more options than the Windows Recovery Console does. You still have the option of accessing a Command Prompt window, you will notice a majority of the restrictions that were present in the Windows Recovery Console have been removed.
Only the Command Prompt environment existed in the Windows Recovery Console. The Command Prompt is one of several options that are available in WinRE.
How to use Startup Repair
In WinRE, it sounds like you are going to be using the Startup Repair option. This option is that if Windows won't boot properly, you can boot WinRE and then choose Startup Repair to perform a series of tests. Startup Repair will then attempt to automatically correct the boot problem.
How to use System Restore
Windows is designed to create system restore points that allow you to roll back the configuration to a previous state should something go wrong? However, some configuration changes can result in a catastrophic failure that leaves a system unbootable. The System Restore option allows you to roll back the operating system's configuration to a prior state, even if the system is unbootable.
When using WinRE System Restore option, remember this: It has one shortcoming. When you perform a system restore through Windows, you have the option of undoing the restore if it does not accomplish what you had in mind. However, when you perform a system restore through WinRE, you are performing an offline system restore, and undoing it is not an option.
Windows Complete PC Restore
Occasionally, you may run into a problem with Windows Vista that you simply cannot fix. In that situation, use the Windows Complete PC Restore option to restore a backup. .Using the Windows Complete PC Restore feature, though, you can restore a backup without having to install Windows first.
I hope this helps and gets your system back up there running and if I can be of any further help let me know als let me now how you make out with it.
