Hello

1
Power on your Toshiba computer. Insert either the boot disk or the Windows startup disk into the CD drive.
2
Shut down the computer just as you normally would (click "Start" followed by "Shut Down").
3
Restart the computer and press "F8" over and over again. Eventually a boot screen appears on your monitor asking how you want to start up your computer.
(Also try F12 if F8 didnt work)

4
Select the "Boot form CD" option and press enter. The computer now launches the contents of your disk. Follow the prompts of the CD to finish the boot. If you want to abort the CD boot press the "Esc" button until you return to the boot screen, then boot from the operating system.

Press the F10 key as you boot and you will a selection of alternate boot devices. If F10 does not work then try F12.
Alternately go into the BIOS and select the CD as the first boot device instead of the hard disk.

Please restart the computer and press the F2 Key to enter BIOS Setup. Then follow the onscreen instructions to locate the Menu for Boot Configuration to select First Boot Device as the CD-ROM Drive or DVD-ROM Drive. Then select F10 Key to save the changes and Exit. Now insert any bootable Operating System Disc and restart the computer to boot from the CD.

Toshiba Tecra M1 what are hdd format procedure?


Formatting a laptop is the same as doing it on a desktop computer.
If you are using the Windows installation CD then to get the laptop to boot up with the Windows CD you can change the BIOS boot startup device and make the CD the first boot device.

I would lick ti instal xp on my set toshiba tecra a2-s316 but i dont know how to boot my system by bootable cd


When booting you laptop notice the Toshiba scree. As that screen displays with the option F2 or F10. With your XP cd in the DVD/CD drive choose F10 and set your boot device to DVD/CD.
And follow the onscreen prompts.
Hope that helps.

Toshiba tecra M3 wont start. Upon startup it shows a black screen and says problem loading operating system


download form bootdisk.com "XP Boot" and burn to cd in an .iso (bootable) format.

boot from the cdrom (you may have to go into BIOS and look for a "boot priority" option to allow you to boot from cd, to acess BIOS, hit "escape" and then either "F1" or "F2" as soon as you turn it on). run fdisk /mbr from the XP Boot cd. with this tool, try to repair the mbr. if that does not work, you need to use this tool to erase the mbr and reinstall windows.
