How to use the recovery CD?


Ive lost the instructions to tell me how to use the recovery CD. I forgot, I need to press to access the disks when I reboot!

Can anyone help please?

Hi clear, before using the recovery CD make you that all important data has been saved to the floppy or USB key because the procedure will erase the entire hard drive. The method for booting from a cΘdΘrom may vary according to the model number of your laptop, but it's something like hold the 'B' button for the Toshiba Startup logo. If this fails you can try to change the boot sequence or use the Toshiba from Windows or the BIOS configuration tool (ESC then F1 when prompted from a cold start) make CD-ROM the first device startup in the list.

  • I'm not clear how to use the recovery CD

    I added all the space using my HDD is it comes about 12 GB, I have 27.9 GB of disk space, but my drive has only 1.80 left disk space. I made clear to solve this problem. Basket is empty, I ran disk cleanup.

    A computer expert suggested that Windows might have become confused and cannot recognize what place I save, it might be because I ran a program called Cyberscrub often. His solution is to reload Windows XP home. My laptop came with recovery discs, everything else is already loaded. I have so much I don't want to lose on my laptop. If I use the recovery discs, I will lose everything on my computer, am I better off buying Windows XP home and re-load, in which case I will not lose my job?

    Also I am not clear how to use the recovery discs, I can't find instructions on what you are doing.
    The only person who could help me went to travel and not reachable.
    Any help greatly appreciated

    It of a very simple to recover the laptop.
    Just boot from the recovery CD and follow the instructions on-screen ;)

    I put t know what version recovery CD you have, but the older one provides the standard and expert mode. In expert mode, you can choose you partition where the OS is to be installed.
    So in this case only the selected partition will be formatted!

    But have you checked the size of the HARD disk in disk management?
    Simply click on the my icon my computer and choose manage.

    Of course, you could remove the internal HARD disk and it could connect to the external USB HDD controller. Then, connect the drive HARD to the second PC and you record data on another HARD drive.

  • Help... How to use the recovery on Pavilion g4 2014tx partition

    Hi all... Would like to ask how to use the recovery partition and what is the effect if I used it... ?

    Thank you...


    You normally start the PC, and at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, you press the F11 key to start the Recovery Manager program.

    Then follow the instructions to restore your PC to its state of software "out of the box.

    In so doing you re-partition and reformat the hard drive.

    All THE data you have on the PC will be lost.

    So make sure that you copy the files that you want to keep on a portable hard drive before proceeding.

    It is also for if you have created a storage partition. You must copy all the files from that too.

    All partitions are erased and redone.

  • Satellite M300 - how to use the recovery disk

    Hello world

    I was wondering how to use the 2 recovery discs that I burned recently if I wanted to fix my USB ports (as seen in my Toshiba M300 - wire to USB ports)

    Any suggestions?


    You can use the only recovery disk to reinstall the whole OS!
    This means that the use of the recovery disk will format the whole HARD drive and will set the laptop back to factory settings!

    If you want to use the recovery disk and then insert it into the ODD and the start-up of this disc.
    Then the installation of the OS should move forward and you should follow the instructions on the screen.

    > but I can't make it work
    And does that mean exactly? You get an error message if you use recovery disks or if you are not able to boot from them?

    Use the recovery disks is very simple: enter the first DVD in your CD/DVD drive and restart your laptop. Depending on your model of laptop, press the F12 key to enter the BIOS boot menu, and then select the CD/DVD drive. Now, the computer starts from the CD/DVD drive with recovery disk. Then follow the instructions on the screen and Windows will re back reinstalled to factory settings (out of box).

    I will prefer to use the recovery as a home standart WinXP CD, because I know that the OEM series will not work in an original version of Windows XP...

    Thanks for your help!


    Hello Kubs

    I see only one solution: you have to somehow use external DVD player and make it visible to your laptop. I try didn t, but I guess you need to start your laptop using WXP startdisc and load the MS-DOS driver for external device.
    If you will have success to access external hard drive I guess that you will be able to start the recovery procedure.

  • How to use the recovery disks that I created?

    Original discs of title: recovery

    The computer store fixed my virus but when I come back most of my programs computer had disappeared. I did (as recommended) recovery disks when I came to the computer. How can I re - install what is on the recovery discs?

    Hi B.Frizzen,
    You can use the recovery disc for re - install or repair the operating system. It will not contain the programs you use on the computer.
    If you have a backup of the programs you use, then you can restore the same thing now, unfortunately you may need to download and reinstall the applications again.

    You can get a new drive to an authorized service provider.

    But if the original OS from Toshiba is installed, you can use the function of disk recovery HARD reinstall Windows as well. Go to the advanced boot menu (F8) and select Repair my computer :)

    I need to use the recovery partition to restore my OS to its original state.  I'm getting crashes (invaded by "dumprep.exe" CPU cycles) and an occasional BSOD.

    What brand is your computer?  Some computer manufacturers, including Dell and HP, have a recovery partition on the hard drive of the new computers.  By pressing a special key combination when the computer starts, you can use the recovery partition to restore the computer to the way it was when it was new.  Looking for a message about the recovery options on the first screen that appears.

  • How to use the recovery on the Satellite A100-192 with 2 partitions CD

    I have a satellite a100-192 with 100 GB hard drive.
    When I bought it I used magic norton 8.0 partion to divide the disk into two partitions, c drive (used for files of program and other things; 20 GB) and d ' drive that I use for all my documents, music, videos and similar stuff...

    and now, because of a few bad shots, I made (the software bad... lol) I want to reinstall windows. and honestly, I have no idea how to proceed. what I mean, I don't know what cd to use (I have two CD when I bought the computer), in fact I guess that's the one with ms a note on it, but how to do it safely without losing all my data on the d drive?

    The problem is that I did a lot of relocations on desktop computers when you hava clean facilities and then I know what I'm doing, but I have no experience with bundled windows installations.


    Usually, Toshiba laptops are supplied with a Toshiba restore CD.
    On this CD, you will find the image of Toshiba which contains all Toshiba drivers and utilities.

    The question is what CD image you received.
    Some people here in the forum suggested that, since January 2006 the Toshiba Recovery CD supports another recovery procedure. The new recovery CD does not support the ghost but the surface RECO and it s not possible to choose the partition for the installation of the OS.
    In this case the whole HARD disk will be deleted and you will lose all your partitions.

    I have only one old recovery CD and so I can't say if it is possible to choose the right partition. It was possible on the old recovery cd by selecting the expert mode.

    In my view, that should make a backup of you all important files before you begin the recovery procedure.
