Hi, if your hard drive is having some firmware related problem, neither you cannot restore nor new install. Your problem seems to be the same.
Check the BIOS, whether the drive configuration shows the correct size of the HDD, if not the HDD firmware needs correction. For that contact the nearest service people.
Thank you for using restore to factory state - fxnlogo_s.png

Where do I find a restore and recovery cd for a panasonic toughbook cf-51 mk2LL?


I wouldn't suggest buying such recovery CDs from 3rd parties when you have the option to get it from Original manufacturer. Buying it from a third party will not guarantee desired results and you may lose a lot of money. You can get it through the official Panasonic website. Here's the link:

Factory restore


The following information comes from the Panasonic Website:

Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

Most 2011 models of Panasonic Toughbook computers now have a Recovery partition on the hard drive instead of a Recovery DVD included in the laptop box. The only exceptions are the Toughbook F9, H2 and U1 Ultra which will continue to ship with a Windows 7 Recovery DVD. Besides restoring the computer to its original factory image, the Recovery Partition can also be used to load 64-bit Windows 7 Professional (32-bit ships by default from Panasonic).

You can order the Recovery Disks here:

I want to restore my panasonic cf 74 to original factory


The best way to "Factory" Restore your Panasonic
Toughbook CF74 is to use the original recovery
disk(s) that came with the unit when new.

If you can't find them, you can order them from
Panasonic at the following website:

http://business.panasonic.com/support-computerstablets-dvdrequests

Here is what they say:
Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

I would like to restore my cf 51 to original factory settings how do i do it?


Boot with the recovery CD in and ensure the first boot device is CD. Follow on screen instructions.

NB = All data will be lost in this procedure so back up all important data.

If you do not have Recovery CD, you MAY be able to download it from manufacturers site. You will also need Windows CD key handy (Under laptop)
