Qosmio F10 - the Qosmio player Partition Recovery

I have a Qosmio F10. He had the motherboard factory upgrade, RAM max, and a new 160 GB Samsung HARD drive mounted. So far so good. I've recently updated to Win7 and it was OK, once the drivers have been found, but I couldn't reinstall the Qosmio Player because apparently he found too little space.

Hotline do not have much help, but I now realize that the QP is a Linux package in its own hidden partition. I've cleaned the disc, which makes an image of the system W7 on a USB HDD. Then I managed on the basis of reinstall the QP and update her, but the image will not recover in the form of images of Windows, I find now, will only recover a disk the same as the original or more.

It is not of course because of the score of the PS. So how is it removed please? I tried everything so far.
Just to make things to complete the product Toshiba Recovery DVD sent with the repaired machine is 70% complete and abandoned.


Qosmioplayer is small application based on Linux, and according to the instructions of Toshiba s, must be installed as a first step, before you install the operating system. I m not 100% sure, but about 200 MB of free space on the HARD drive is required for installation of Qosmioplayer.
It works perfectly when you use original Qosmioplayer and recovery disks but I put t know how it will work when you try to use your own image.

I hope that someone else has the same model of laptop and solution for this.
If you will be able to manage this please send a feedback.

  • Express the Media Player (EMP) recovery disk - satellite P105-S6024

    I have a problem with my on my new machine satellite P105-6024 express Media Player software.

    As I bought it, everything works fine. But then, I did the partitions on my HARD drive and I instaled all the software recovery disc. And everything looks earlier and work properly but Express Media Center. It seems that it is not installed. I found the special Express Media Player restore disk but I don't know how to use it. (I am a novice complite). As I knew EMP is a linux-like software and it is not visible in Windows. And I know that there was a small special partition dedicated to this application. This partition has been deleted. And I'm not sure that it is possible to install EMP once more on my laptop. How can I use the EMP recovery disk? If I just run in the windows environment I see just a few files - but their execution, nothing is happen. I'd appreciate a small manual.

    Thank you very much in advance


    I found this on the web:

    Installation Guide step by step for Express Media Player and Windows XP Recovery on two partitions in Expert mode:

    (1) all DATA on HARD drive will BE DESTROYED IRREVERSABLY (it's serious!)
    (2) install Express Media Player:
    Boot from the recovery Express Media Player CD
    --> use [delete all Partitions] (can be on the left side of the menu for older versions of reader).
    (3) boot with the Windows XP Recovery CD, go to expert mode and exit the "TOSHIBA Recovery Tool" (version OEM Ghost) using menuitem "Quit."
    (4) you can use fdisk.exe or gdisk.exe - I'll show the syntax here gdisk
    (its easier to describe and there are a lot of descriptions for FDISK on the net)
    (5) now, we create two partitions (size of 50%: 50%-playersize).
    --> At the DOS prompt, type:
    Gdisk 1 /cre /pri /sz:50%-> creates a primary partition 1
    Gdisk 1 /cre /ext-> creates an extended partition 2
    Gdisk 1/log /cre-> creates a 2nd logical partition

  • I have a few questions about the internet and partition recovery

    I deleted completely OS X Yosemite and only left Windows. Now that I'm pretty sick of Windows and want to use my Macbook Air for real, I am using recovery of the internet (order and R) to reinstall OS X.

    I backed up all my data and that you haven't stored anything in my Macbook. My questions are: (I know they are long, but they are quick to respond)

    1. I want to erase everthing on my Mac. I have now 3 partitions. After starting and pressing command + R, I would use disk utility to erase everything, like this .

    After you click Delete, would be merged my 3 partitions in 1 and I could repartition my Mac?

    2. I want to create a partition for OS X Yosemite (and possibly upgrade to El Capitan). What is the minimum recommended size for partition OS X Yosemite? (Because my SSD is only 128 GB)

    3. Let's say I create 3 partitions, let's name A for OS X, B for my data and C for reinstalling Windows. If I boot into Windows, I'd be able to use (read and modify) data on B, or just OS X could do that?

    4 the amount of data I should download during the recuperation of the Internet? I guess that much since I'm downloading the OS X package, but my internet is quite slow, so I want to know how of SGB I have to download.

    5 If I asks me to enter the Apple ID to download OS X, would any book Apple ID?

    Thanks for reading. I would be extremely grateful if you answer my questions. See you soon

    • 0: have backups of everything that you care and disconnect external drives except those you use specifically.  While he isn't supposed to, repartitioning should always be supposed to cause a total loss of data.  Corruptions can and do happen sometimes, unfortunately.  Stray user commands can sometimes target bad drives for erasure or repartitioning, because errors can happen.  Do not connect anything unnecessarily.

  • How can I increase the size of partitioned 'Recovery' drive in Windows 8?

    I need to update my windows 8 to 8.1 in order to upgrade to Windows 10. The "recovery" partitioned D drive doesn't have enough space for the upgrade. Is there a FREE way to increase space partitioned drive?


    I have shrunk the drive C to unallocated space of 10 GB and used free software EaseUS to increase the size of the disk D (I couldn't increase using windows).

    If your configuration is set with the partitions in a certain order or Setup, it can be moved using this tool, so you should come back to something like ZigZag3143 (Windows devices & for IT Pro MS - MVP) suggested.  Or another option is to save what concerns you, format the drive and reinstall everything fresh (it may be too much for you, but it is an option).

  • If the size of the disk recovery is asking more than the flash player?

    I have laptop vaio with windows 8 inside. I want to create a recovery disk. He said that the flash drive must have 32 GB of space. but he has only 29.5 GB. will this be a problem? I really need to check the "copy of the recovery partition from the pc on the recovery disk? What happens if I don't? It starts to create the recovery with low memory drive? I'm totally confused. & I don't know much about PCs.


    What is the full error you receive when you try to create the recovery disk?

    If you have an OEM computer comes with Windows 8 preinstalled, you can also check the box to copy the contents of the recovery disk recovery partition to be able to use the USB key recovery to restore the factory Windows 8.

    The size required for the USB drive create a disc of Windows 8 recovery actually depends on the size of the recovery image Windows 8, which is stored on a dedicated PC recovery partition. This on the PC recovery Partition is generally 3 to 6 GB in size.

    Windows 8 includes a built-in tool for creating a recovery USB disk and while creating this recovery USB drive, Windows considers the size of partition recovery on your computer and will let you know what is the recovery partition, so that you can use a USB to a larger size.

  • Qosmio G10-133 - Install Qosmio Player and using the recovery disk

    Hi again.

    My g10-133 was the mother of uypgraded installed by Toshiba that there are back and forward in his first year with problems of graphics chip, so they installed the motherboard with the 6200 chip chart.

    Until very recently, I installed Windows XP to one of my dead computers that I've ever had anywhere with my original recovery qosmio disc such that it has been damaged. I recently bought an other G10 as I wanted to replace the keyboard and display and it came with disks,

    I put in a raw player. I used the recovery of the Qosmio player disc, and this indicates that it is complete. I then installed the Toshiba Recovery disk that has Windows MCE on it. (I have now three original copies of the present). But when windows go to start, the computer gets past the Bios and then quickly goes to the blue screen of death... I tried to use break so that I can read this, but it does not work. I tried more than a windows disk, but not joy. I also had special instructions for Toshiba, which has the Qosmio updater on him, and also another drive which has some additional drivers.

    So far, I've tried all sorts and whenever I go to start the laptop, it crashes. The Toshiba recovery disc has two methods that an automatic and a step forward on (which I don't have a clue how to use). The automatic, which does not implement the normal windows installation, but evokes a Toshiba says... and it goes from 0% to 100% and ends each time.

    If I use my Windows XP disk from another pc it install fine. and the laptop is fine until it reaches download Windows SP3, which seems to slow everything down.

    I would like to install the Qosmio to style factory if pos.

    What you need to help your service provider which has replaced the motherboard. A long time ago I heard talking of this and what I know is that the machine must be ready for use: This means service must update the BIOS, verify compatibility of memory, RAID functions are not the same, Bios, EC/KBC and DMI must be updated and rewritten. The laptop owner must be willing to work with new hardware components.

    If I m remembering well this new mainboard has different chipset and recovery image that you are trying to install has really bad drivers inside. With other words: after the Exchange system motherboard drivers and the Qosmio Player require an update.

    You know the whole process is a bit complicated, but, as far as I know, Toshiba service provider must send you instructions for Qosmioplayer update and instructions for the update tool.

    At the moment I can't help you. Please call again and ask for help. If you will not get any help it let us know.

  • Qosmio F10 - a few disruptions, watch television in the Media Center & Qosmio player


    I have a Qosmio F10.
    The motherboard died and was replaced by Toshiba with a new saw 915 chips.
    I was watching TV in media library and Qosmio player with no problems.

    But recently, I noticed that after playing for awhile, the TV has a few disruptions.
    The video is not yet clear, but the screen has vibrations (for lack of a better word).

    It's like when you watch TV on low voltage. I thought that it may be due to dump excess files and temporary files. So I deleted them.
    It seems to work very well so far, but I wonder if it's because of the RAM.
    His only 512 MB. Should I update? If yes then how much.

    Thank you.

    If the manual says this, then it could be possible that this is the cause
    Sorry, but you can find using only the notebook with the settings and accurate portrait of Toshiba.

  • Differences of the G20-118 HDD and Qosmio Player

    Hi all.
    I purchased a Qosmio G20-118 and theres a small diference between the hard drive.
    It has two built in 80GB HD, but in the bios, I see the first HD 79 GB and the second as 80 GB.
    Where is the 1 GB missing from the first HD? Qosmio player?
    If this is the case, then the RAID function only works with two 79GB HDD so I lose 2 GB HARD drive plus the loss of space for the RAID function aditional. If a drop about 5 GB of HARD drive.
    How do I get arround this?
    What I need to get rid of Qosmio Player to have two HD 80 GB? If so, how can I get rid of him?

    Thank you!


    You are right. The Qosmioplayer is preinstalled on the hidden partition. Because of this, the HARD disk capacity is less than 80 GB.

    In my opinion the Qosmioplayer is very nice and useful tool and it is not necessary to be deleted. If you want to use any ability of the second HARD disk do not use RAID option.

    Do the backup data on an external device. On this way, you will lose 1 GB available on both hard drives of 160 GB.

    Otherwise you must preinstall the unit with recovery media. After that the Qosmioplayer is deleted.

I went to Toshiba HWSetup first changing CD-ROM boot order. Now it starts up on the CD but when I try to install says "you have 100 MB of free space on your hard drive. Uh, I do it. Help, please.

  • Qosmio F10-36: drive problem HARD and Qosmio player installation

    I bought the Qosmio F10-36, made in Germany for the Russia and CIS. After that 6 months, it was repaired due to problems with the motherboard, it was totally changed in the video card and now there are problems with the hard drive after the start of the very slow work computer and finallly collapsed.

    We had to format the hard drive and you must now install the player, Qosmio, which was also removed during this work.
    How we achieve this, I'm too far from the nearest service centre.

    frankly I am fed with this qosmio upward!
    If any chance that I would go back to toshiba filled like never such problems before.

    In my opinion maybe call and ask why this happen just to hear what they have to say about it.

    In any case, I recommend you to follow:
    If possible, back up all your data on an external device, such as USB key or HARD drive
    The first installation with recovery CD Qosmioplayer delivered Qosmioplayer
    When finished install OS using supplied recovery DVDs and you'll have the factory again settings

    After this check the unit carefully to make sure if there is just like before.

    I had to install a new hard drive and I wonder if that's why he (G15) does not start with two hard drives installed?
    The player moved on the hard disk of 2?


    As much as I know Qosmio G15 is not all new laptop model and am really wondering that you have noticed today that Qosmioplayer recovery CD is missing.

    I don't know how it works in the United States but check the box download Toshiba under http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_home.jsp and check if you can find Qosmioplayer for download. Otherwise, consult the European page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/download_drivers_bios.jsp

    I don't really know if you can use the European version on cell phones in the United States, but you can try. Other service partners in relationship in a way in your country. I'm sure they can give you the original recovery media.
