You mean that you are not able to recover the laptop using the HDD recovery procedure?
You can begin the HARD drive by pressing F8, choose fix my computer.
Then a new window should appear and you could choose a new option called Toshiba HDD recovery.

If this is not possible then I think that you don't have a choice but to reinstall the OS using a Setup (Microsoft or Toshiba) disk.
If you don t have this disc then you order on this website:

    Seems the CD/DVD drive cannot handle the recovery disk I m not very well why, but you can try to copy this disc (burn on another drive) and then try to use the copied disc in order to restore the operating system.

  • Windows 7 - > 8 - > 8.1 Upgrade winload.exe missing 0xc0000098 error after upgrade

    Hi all

    I have a Windows 7 Enterprise system that I've successfully upgraded to Windows 8 business. Next step must now go to Enterprise 8.1. The whole idea was to avoid the re-setup and well with Windows 8.
    The problem is that when I switch to Windows 8.1 it installs then boots. During the startup, it stops with an error winload.exe is missing for corruption. Code 0xc0000098. All of the keys in the same message results accept the option to boot another OS (F9 I think). It starts in Windows 8 and said he couldn't install 8.1 and that 8 has been restored. Of course, everything is back like nothing happened.
    If this can help:
    The system is a Dell XPS 15 with the eSATA Intel and an SSD.
    Thank you!

    Hello Vijay,

    Thanks for the reply. I do not end up understanding.

    For the benefit of third parties:

    Curiously, the ISO was corrupted. I say strangely because the ISO could be unpacked and burned on a DVD without errors. On a hunch, that I downloaded the ISO again, extract and it worked very well.

    Thank you

  • Winload.exe damaged or missing (0xc0000221)

    Have been running Vista on a T61 Lenovo Think Pad for more than a year and just today (just a week after the expiration of the warranty), windows vista does not completely start.  I get the black screen with the following error:

    Windows could not start. a recent change in hardware or software may be the cause. to resolve this problem:

    Status: 0xc0000221
    Info: the file is corupt possibaly. the header checksum does not match the checksum calculated.

    I created a boot disk (since the manufacturer did not provide with the laptop) and was able to perform the repair (with no luck) and system restore (with no luck).  I can get in the quick c: through the startup disk and I ran the BIOS screen HARD drive diagnosis and it happened (so far... still underway).

    The manufacturer support told me that I needed to remove or replace my HDD and reinstall Windows which I can't believe would be the solution to this...

  • Satellite A210 - 4 1: Winload.exe problem after having used the product recovery disc


    I could really do with some help here. I have a PC laptop Toshiba Satellite A210 - 1 4. Disk partitioned with Vista home premium service pack 4.0.

    Last night, I used the product recovery disc supllied with the laptop in an attempt to restore its initial configuration.

    and the end of the procedure, I find myself with a prompt cmd with X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe in the high bit blue box indicating:

    Error: imageX could not apply vista F:\05993xsp.swm Index 2 of ODD to C:\!

    Press a key to continue. Box disappears then an administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe in the top blue bit indicating:

    waiting for ODD vacancies...
    STRANGE drive f: loan.
    Look for support in the F: drive...
    Failed to initialize the raid class.
    No RAID - continue normally...

    X:\Windows\System32 >

    Now every time the laptop trying to restart it just comes up with the error message:

    STATUS: 0XC000000E

    Below I have then have the possibility of esc or continue with the same result of the system attempts to restart.

    The recovery disc has no option of repair on this subject.

    need help please, I have no idea.

    Thank you


    Looks like something was wrong during the recovery procedure.
    Have you tried to recover the laptop once more?
    If this isn't the case, you should definitely try this!

    You are right; hasn t drive recovery option for the repair because the recovery disk is not the same as a MS Vista drive. The recovery disk contains image files (it s a package) and the files contains Vista, Toshiba drivers, tools and additional software.

    So if something was happening well wrung out during the recovery procedure, you will not be able to repair the installation of the OS, but you need to run it again.

  • Satellite L300-11V - system registry file is missing or damaged

    Need help, I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L300D-11V, which, when turned on gives the message that the system registry file is missing or damaged.

    My problem is that when the first installation program, I did not back up files of recovery on DVD in the event of such problems like this, my questions are, is there any way around this without the recovery disk to reinstall Vista from hardrive?

    I can't find a way to do this or Toshiba will provide a recovery disk or a software download (for free or to buy) and it is the only option that is available to solve my problem?

    The laptop is still under warranty for another 11 months am I covered for the hardware/software in this situation he has taken over the shop I bought that they said they couldn't do anything without the recovery disk.

    Help, thanks in advance.


    You can reinstall Vista without the recovery disks. If want to repair your computer by restoring it to the original factory State, you can do so directly from the hard disk (press F8 when you start your computer, choose "Repair your computer"
    "and follow the instructions in the menu).

    Normally you had recommended to burn the recovery disk when you first start. There is a reminder that pop ups from time to time to burn the disc.
    Toshiba does not provide a software download, it is all preinstalled on your laptop.

    After the reinstallation, please create the recovery disk. If you need it and didn't burn this, you have to pay.

    Good bye

  • Satellite A300D - upgrade Vista - "Setup.exe has stopped working".


    I use Satellite A300D with Vista and I tried to upgrade to Windows 7 using Toshiba upgrader.

    After the language selection and proceed to the other steps, it asks me to uninstall a bunch of programs. Some are uninstalled very well, but when it comes to four other programs he says "Setup.exe has stopped working" and it does not uninstall.

    I tried to uninstall the manually, but I got the same message.

    These programs are;
    Setup driver Atheros
    Toshiba hardware configuration
    Toshiba supervisor password
    Realtek High Definition Audio Driver

    So I can't go ahead with the upgrade.

    Anyone know what could be the problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Pouvez - TR


    Anyboday tried to run the upgrade as an administrator? Therefore, click on the setup.exe file on the upgrade disc and run it as an administrator.

    Moreover I also upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, but in the manual supplied with the notebook, I founded the information, that it s to start the upgrade directly after a new installation of recovery.

    If you did a recovery facility before the upgrade?

  • Satellite A60 crashes and restart the cycle - missing or damaged system32\DRIVERS\Ntfs

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A60, who has recently developed a serious problem and is currently blocked in a crash restart cycle. He started with the message "missing or damaged system32\DRIVERS\Ntfs", I've read about this problem on discussion forums, but am still unable to find a solution.

    Currently on start error messages appear indicating a driver is missing or damaged, the Toshiba start page has vertical lines of missing data and on a few occasions it will fully start after a short period of time vertical lines appear on the screen and it crashes.

    I tried a number of bugs:
    * Re installed windows XP pro (formatting the hard drive and renew the partitions)
    * Update the bios on the site of toshiba in version 1.90 (I think that the update also flashes the bios, but would need this confirmation?)
    Swapping the hard drive with a portable, yet no longer starts and HD works fine in another laptop, dismissing the possibility of missing or corrupt files.

    I realize that this could be a problem with the RAM and think that the laptop has 512 fixed to the motherboard, accessable without stripping down, but do not know how to determine if the RAM is the problem. While trying these fixes, I get problems with the start of the player and can only get the disk to launch and recognize the CD about 1 to 10 times.

    Could someone suggest a remedy or a fix I can try? or suggest how they fixed a similar problem. Thank you very much

    You ssounds not very good ;(description
    The hardware malfunction appears to be responsible for the vertical lines on the screen
    If vertical lines appear also an external display, the jury may be wrong.

    You re right, I Googled, and it seems that Sat A60 supports an internal memory.
    As far as I know, this memory cannot be removed and only an electronics could solve this internal memory.
    But are you sure that the internal memory is impaired. The device supports only 256 MB internal memory and other modules are removable
    If you can try to replace
