Re: How to use Recovery Expert Mode in Satellite Pro M70-220 product recovery CD

I would appreciate advice on the following points.

My Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E-00D008G3), portable computer has 4 partitions created by Acronis Disk Director costume v9:

C: OS - Win XP Pro SP3
D: programs
E: data & downloads
F: backups

After you start the laptop in Win XP, I inserted the recovery CD Toshiba in the DVD - RAM drive
and sailed to the BMP file, R:\G_INST\BMP, where I found the file "menu.bmp", which gives 2 recovery

* 1. Retrieve entire hard drive *.
Caveat. All data stored o your computer will be lost.
Preinstalled software factory will be installed.

* 2. Recovery expert Mode WARNING: *.
This is for PC experts only.
Preinstalled software factory can be installed on an existing partition.

My questions are linked using the "Recovery Expert" Mode:
-I'll be able to use the "recovery of the Expert Mode' the recovery CD to reinstall Win XP Pro (pre-installed software factory) on my C: partition, while affecting only not partitions D, E & F?
-I'll be able to format the C: partition by using the "Expert recovery" Mode, without formatting of other partitions?
-What is the exact procedure of "Expert Recovery Mode"?
-where can I find more information on the procedure of "Expert Recovery Mode"?

Thank you


> I'll be able to use the "recovery of the Expert Mode' the recovery CD to reinstall Win XP Pro (pre-installed software factory) on my C: partition, while affecting only not partitions D, E & F

Yes, this should be possible. Using the Expert Mode of recovery, you should get the ghost window where you can select the partition where the OS is to be installed. In this case only that partition would be formatted.

> will it be possible to format the C: partition by using the "Expert recovery" Mode, without formatting of other partitions?

Yes, theoretically it should be possible.

> what is the exact procedure of "Expert Mode of recovery"?
As I mentioned above, this mode allows you to restore the operating system on a partition of some and only this partition will be formatted.

> where can I find more information on the procedure of "Expert Mode of recovery"?
What looking here in the forum?

  • Satellite Pro M70 Recovery - preservation of existing partitions

    The HARD drive of my Satellite Pro M70-220 (PSM75E-00D008G3) has 4 left, 3 of which I created with Acronis Disk Director Suite v9:

    C: BONE

    If I use the supplied with the notebook restore CD, I'll be able to preserve the structure of the partition?

    What are the installation options detailed which are available when you use the recovery disk?

    Thank you



    If you use the recovery disk Toshiba your whole HARD drive will be wiped, so you will have lost the existing partitions and all files that you have stored on the HARD drive. So back up your data first, before launching the Toshiba recovery disc.

    The point is the Toshiba Recovery disk restore factory settings if the HARD disk will be wiped and you return the score of the first State when you used the laptop.

  • Satellite Pro M70: How to connect to the internet using a second computer

    I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro M70 with a RTL8139/810 x Family Fast Ethernet NIC use this, the laptop was connected to a desktop PC, whereby it is connected to the internet via a modem ADSL (USB) on the desktop. The laptop runs XP Pro; the desktop has XP Home.

    My laptop has been a nasty virus. When removing it, he lost the ability to network. I tried "repair network", but he could not find an IP address. In the end, I had to manually set an IP address for the network to work again. You use IPCONFIG release and renew the IP addresses that failed - unable to connect to the DHCP server.

    He could now see the Office network and Exchange files across be it, but it could no longer contact internet.

    I decided to reinstall the OS on the laptop, but this does not solve the problem. I still have to manually set the IP on the laptop. I can connect two PCs, but does not see the internet from the laptop on the network.

    If I connect the laptop directly to the internet via the modem, it works fine. I can even access the internet from the computer on the network when this is the laptop that has the internet connection.

    The virus could have damaged the Ethernet controller, or she affected somehow?

    Is it possible to test?

    Have you advice?

    Did you check if the laptop and the PC using the same workgroup?

  • Satellite Pro M70 - where to get a recovery disk?

    I have a very old Toshiba Satellite Pro M70 and I got the blue screen of death, I was not able to find my spare drive.

    I used another drive of another brand of computer and my laptop runs, but I have problems with the Wi - Fi and audio and photo card reader
    Any ideas how I can get hold of a good drive, Toshiba cant help rescue me because the computer is old.

    Thank you very much


    Hey Buddy,

    I think you need to install the proper drivers because the other recovery disk contains bad drivers. Simply visit the Web from Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

    Also Toshiba you can t get a recovery disk. You will need to contact an authorized service provider.

  • Anyone using Win2k on a Satellite Pro M70 or drivers will be used?

    I just bought an M70. Needless to say that it comes with Windows XP.

    The software that I use on my project specifically requires Win2k and a 1 GB of RAM.

    I would like to know if
    1. anyone who has tried to install Win2k on M70 and if so, of the problems they might have faced.
    2. I'm looking desperately for the M70 Win2K drivers. Can someone help me with where I can find them?

    Finally, if M70 is not the right book for me, anyone knows another piece which has 1 GB RAM / 100GB HDD combination and supports Win2k as a BONE.

    Appreciate the answers of all the experts.

    Thank you

    Well, the fact is that this laptop only comes with the WinXP.
    I also checked the Toshiba site and there is no drivers for W2k.
    If you also use the W2k on your laptop, you can try to install it on the second partition and use it as a dual OS notebook. But you will not be able to use special Toshiba and utility tools.

    There are many models of Satellite Pro M70, but generally, it should be possible to upgrade the memory for max 2024 MB. In this case there is no problem with the upgrade.

    When I use the Dynadock V10 on the satellite Pro M70 every time when a program has pictures in it, the need for long time to load, and for this time the mouse cursor is jumping. It appears in MS Internet Explorer as well as in MS Word.

    Is he maybe a bottleneck with all these different data to come take a simple USB cable?

    I tried to uninstall the software Dynadoc, but the problem remains takes place.

    How can I solve the problem, because now the work is so bad, that the Dynadoc is not supposed!

  • Use SDHC with Satellite Pro M70

    My question is about the Satellite Pro M70 (PSM76) SD card reader. Can I use SD card 4 GB or more (SDHC)?

    All what I can say is: you can try to use it and I hope to be recognized correctly. I have Satellite M70, but I do not use SD cards and unfortunately can not test it on my laptop.

    Just test it. To be honest, I'm a bit skeptical about it.

  • Satellite Pro M70 freezes everytime when the USB port is used

    Satellite Pro M70 (SPM76) crashes every time when the USB port is used.
    The mouse works, but external HD/Extarnal card sound/Memory stick causing the laptop to freeze. All the drivers are installed right, they are the most recent and have no trouble with other users.

    The devices are all compatible. Service pack 2 is installed, and all the hardware drivers on the toshiba have been updated... again, same problem.
    The toshiba is about 2 months old and have had this problem since I got it. First I thought it was the drvers, but I cleared of all (?) other options but the USB ports.


    Believe me, that's not easy to say what the problem may be. It is important to see if the problem occurs because of hardware or software may be. I recommend you to backup all your data and reinstall the unit using rescue media. On this way the unit will be factory settings and will be clean preinstalled. Test your USB devices and see what happens.

    Try to use some standard like USB stick or external HARD disk parts, because in this case, you must not install any drivers please. If you use other devices like USB webcam with own software and drivers, it is possible that something goes wrong, but what. On this path, it is not possible to say.
