C870-121 satellite recovery disk does not work?
I have a weird problem, I bought the computer 6 months ago and have been happy with it, but I'm protected by a kind of virus and all the operating system has been * ed big time, so yesterday I want to da a factory install with recovery disks that I created when I bought the computer.
I have the Toshiba system recovery DVDs 4 disc, I insert the sytem disc and look as it should, it loads and then it ask disc of recovery disks, insert disk 1, and after 10 seconds it ejects again and claim a disc again.
I checked the 5 discs on my other computer and there are data on them and they look good, I tried to insert the discs to see if I'm past them when I printed on them, nothing works, it simply will not recognize disc and I'm stuck? Any help from anyone?
I'm sure that's not material that are bad, because I had an old windows XP disk, and after that I tried everything, I tried to install on the computer and everything was fine, but I would like to have windows 7 as the computer came with...

Would it be possible that the CD/DVD drive is unable to read the first disc correctly?
I mean, maybe it's a disk problem and not the problem with the data
I don't know what's wrong here, but you have some a lot of m options here:
To recover the laptop, you must use the Toshiba recovery disks or HARD drive recovery
You can use the HARD drive recovery process?
Turn on the device, press F8, choose fix my computer-> drive HARD recovery.
If this is not possible? Well. You can always order a new disc here:
XP Recovery disk does not work. The 3 options are unresponsive. Is there an easy solution. All other functions of cell phones seem ok. It is a reliable machine for more than 3 years, but now must use the recovery disc. Brilliant ideas greatly appreciated.
Well, I put t know why you recovery CD doesn t work. Have you checked the CD some scratches? Have you tried to clean this CD?
However if it of impossible to use the recovery CD, you can contact the ASP and buy a new one. It doesn t expensive.
In addition, you can install an original Windows operating system and then all the Toshiba necessary drivers on the Toshiba site.
I have an old Satellite A30-203 and have a problem. I tried to format my laptop but the product recovery cd does not seem to work in deletion the data on my disk, its becomes blocked during loading files of ntfs? Now I am not able to retrieve a windows session would I need a new product recovery cd and would be able to get it?
It is difficult to say what is the reason of this but made is either it s a laptop problem itself or the recovery disc (e.g. scratches) causes this problem.
In my opinion the best way to check this using a Microsoft Windows disk. If the installation completed successfully, you need a new recovery disk. As a result, you can ask a service provider authorized in your country! :)
I have a toshiba Satellite C650, who has recently developed with a disc read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some possible solutions I've read on the internet.
I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which has also installed Windows 7 64-bit. When I use the recovery disk and it loaded the files etc it evokes just a black screen and the cursor.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?
I tried to start my computer acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine.
As is - this does anyone have suggestions as to why I get the message "disk read error - press ctrl, alt and delete to restart?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
On this virtual path, it is not easy to offer the exact diagnosis, but of course, there must be a problem with the HARD drive. Can you get a second one for test purposes and exchange it. Just to be sure if the HDD is troublemaker.
But there is something else:
> I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other computer acer laptop...
Sorry, but I don t understand this. Can you please explain what you did exactly?
I have a L350-170 running Windows Vista home, I recently buy a Toshiba restore CD and now that it's happened, it does not work.
I put in the CD and boot from the CD drive, I can hear work and the display shows "Windows loading files" and a bar appears at the bottom of the screen, after that, the screen turns white and all I'm left with is a pointer of the mouse and a black screen.
Have you tested if the laptop would start using another bootable Linux Live CD, WinPE or Win XP disc?
Please check that would help determine if the problem is related to the computer laptop or recovery disk.
Please also check if the HARD drive is ok. For this test, you can use a test called Drive Fitness Test free HARD drive tool. Google for it.
However, it could also be a defective recovery disc and in this case, you should get in touch with the guys where you ordered this drive may be you need a replacement.
my recovery for a6057c disk will not work after that I used the NeoSmart
After logon to Vista I see that empty office, I can access the task
Manager by CTRL - ALT_DEL.manager.
Windows and all my files are on drive D and my C is the drive has nothing on this subject now. I'd do it
I just want to make a disaster Recovery and
all over again with new factory. Does anyone have any ideas?
I now remove the prtition C on my drive.
Vista still labels the d drive, I have no C?
I found the answer on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Item number: 947288 primary partition drive letter designation is lost when you use WinRE to repair a GPT in Windows volume
The article is also for Vista.
Article ID: 223188 How to restore the drive letter of the system / boot in Windows
Would do the same thing.
I took the article to use regedit to swap my C & D return records.
Now windows Vista starts OK. (All I had before was just an empty office).
I also received my HP Factory disaster recovery disks it looks they will work if I need.

Contact the computer manfacturer, who provided the original discs.
Hello, my laptop no longer and I think it's the hard drive, and, the companion disks do not work either. I called Toshiba and they said that it is not taken in charge more. Does anyone have an idea how can I make a boot disk for win 3.1? Thank you, jim
I found a Web page called www.bootdisk.info
Here you can download pictures of the boot floppies. This is the exe files. Just insert the disc and run the file.
There are also other types of bootdisks with special features for download!
I replaced my hard drive on my laptop HP - computer pavilion dv7 notebook. My recovery disks do not seem to work now, I get to 62% completion and then the error message "Recovery Manager is unable to restore your computer by using the original image. Please contact HP support. "Error code: 0xe0ef000e" do I need to buy a new HP recovery discs? Thanks, Nick
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience in troubleshooting these special software installations.
We should expect to download and install.
If they are not, I have no tricks up my sleeve for you to try.
I recommend starting a new thread describing your questions with this software and hope that someone else in the support forum can help you with these items.
See you soon,.
A few days ago my Satellite P10-304 is not start, so I used recovery CD and got the machine works like new.
Yesterday it wouldn't boot.
Some thing on an ethernet cable unplugged error message, so I tried recovery CD because there is no data to lose.
It won't work, to come up with an error message "GDISK (E) no such fixed disk - 1" then "error number 11030, invalid destination drive.
Can anyone help me to get it booted/recovered please?
I'm not fussed on something special for this old laptop, just a second computer for the kids to do their homework on.
Hmm. sounds like a HARD drive failure
Have you checked if the HARD drive has been recognized in the BIOS?
> Something on an Ethernet cable unplugged error message.
I guess you get an error PXE - E61 starting at startup.
This message appears if the laptop tries to boot from LAN.
This could happen if there are no other sources of boot as HARD drive, etc.
I try to use the recovery for Satellite 5200 disk but it won't work. I have the recovery disk in the DVD player and I tried holding C and also tried to change the boot sequence by pressing F12 at startup to the top but he's not in it.
Someone at - it ideas?
Is there a problem with the drive while the OS is running? Try to use different bootable CD and see exactly what is happening.
Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this error message I get when trying to restore my laptop...

Any help appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
> NB. If I restart the laptop start date and shows BOOTMGR is missing Ctrl Alt Del to restart...
Hmm... for me, it seems that the laptop does not start from the disc (DVD), but it attempts to boot from the HARD drive...
In any case, have you tried to boot from another disk; for example, Win XP, Linux Live CD?
To do this, and check if it is possible... If Yes, format the HARD drive and try to boot from the recovery again disc!
PS: Have you tried a HARD drive recovery option?
Turn on the unit, press F8 and choose fix my computer
After that, select Toshiba HDD recovery option if possible.
I'm selling my laptop.
Went to use recovery of original product CD provided along with the PC.
1 disc worked OK - unfortunately 2nd disc (undamaged) stops at about 60 percent and gives the following message;
error number 437
Can not read the file
version: 7,00 (Apr 2001 19, build 254).
command line arguments: - clone, mode is pload, srx = x: \01367000.GHO:1, dst = 1:1 - batch
PROG mode: prog_local
Name of the path:
dump file: x:\01367001.GHS
State of IRQ of mouse: no IRQ (0)
I have a buyer waiting and everything seems to be Dutch!
It's not easy to say what's wrong with the 2nd recovery disk.
I would recommend formatting the HARD drive completely and try again to recover the operating system. If it doesn't work, well try to contact Toshiba. Here, you can order the recovery CD. Maybe the problem of recovery will be solved as a gesture of goodwill.
Nevertheless, the recovery cd is not expensive.
I tried to recover the Satellite C670D - 11K using new factory system recovery disks provided by Toshiba. Both drives do their thing until the end when I get these messages:
Files\mcafee\virusscan/dat\000.0\avvscan.dot c/program Error (error = 1117)
Error restoring image
request could not be performed due to the i/o device error
Error image x could not apply for win 7 V:\\HDDRecovery\SWIMG\15434XSP. Water rain Index 2 in c HARD drive management
Only option after this point is to press a button any and I get the white screen Toshiba
When I turn on the laptop I get message "boot mgr is missing." I tried the disc of recovery a couple of times since and things don't get any better. In fact I just get a black screen with cursor after
Suggestions this is appreciated please? I was thinking of buying the recovery disks would be a solution simple but should I give in and go to a professional now?
I assume you are using recovery discs that you created using Toshiba recovery disc creator tool, right?
It seems silly now, but something went wrong and I m afraid recovery disks are now useless. It turns out that you can't change anything or force the cell to the recovery image installs successfully.
The only thing you can try is - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD4103KB0000R01.htm
I don't think this will help, but you can test it in any case.
Now, you have two options:
-for the restore disc original order from Toshiba
-install the clean version of the OS by using the Microsoft installation disc
I'm working on an A100-197, which would not boot into normal Windows, but was able to start in safe mode.
I used MSConfig to disable all startup and other services. Not good.
I used the system restore. Not good.
I have scanned for viruses, rootkits, etc. None found. Not good.
I copied data to another hard drive in SafeMode with network and inserted the recovery DVDs.
Through unpacking and got message saying to remove DVD - did this and system seems to freeze.
Click the exit button and it restarts, but Windows froze (the movement stopped moving blobs). Tried safe mode
but got a message saying that the installation of the system has not finished.
Tried the recovery again, but this time I left the unpacking screen 100% of the overnight to see if
He has nothing. There can be no. Click on exit and got the same as above.
HDD formatted in partition magic and I tried again. Not good.
Created 5 GB FAT32 partition and DVD files copied to the FAT32 partition. Tried to run the decompression program
back. He refused to run in DOS mode.
I think that connects the hard drive on another machine and RecoUnpack.exe a work PC running to
unzip the files on the laptop HARD drive image, but this is crazy - the recovery disk is supposed to retrieve the
System. What else can I try?
I would say that you have some serious hardware malfunction. Have you ever tried to check the RAM and the processor?
In your case, I would try to run the UBCD4Win (www.ubcd4win.com) and superPI allows to see if the RAM is faulty.
It could also be another component such as the motherboard or something on the motherboard (graphics, sound, some capacitors)
It s just a suggestion, but you could really give my hint a chance. ;)
I would also try another HARD drive in this machine, maybe the controller from your old HARD drive disappeared...
