Recovery of a Satellite A100 (PSAA9) - deleted the partitions and XP Home no Pro

We have recently had trouble with our laptop and decided to restore the settings from the manufacturer with the recovery CD from Media. My son decided to do when he started the program, he chose the option to delete the partitions the crash

Now, he has completely formatted the HD remove the operating system (Windows XP Pro).
When I bought the laptop, with what he came already installed WXP Pro and comes from the Certification sticker on the bottom of the laptop.
Is there anyway I can receive an installation of Windows XP Pro CD?


Generally, all models of Satellite laptops are delivered with the operating system Windows XP Home edition or Media Center Edition home. Toshiba's Satellite Pro series, and under this name, you can get WXP Pro operating system.

Can you tell us what model you exactly A100-xxx?

If your laptop has been in the showroom by the dealer, it is possible they are using clean installation of OS instead of supplied recovery media.

  • Re: Reinstalling operating system on Satellite A100 without deleting the other existing partition

    Hi all

    I have a Satellite A100-912 and have not reinstalled the operating system (Windows XP) for several years, but now I think that my laptop works well below par. I have my product recovery CD (disk recovery) and it will use for the re-installation.

    I have three partitions on the HARD disk (c, d and e, respectively).

    I was wandering if it would be possible to reinstall (get as long as the factory) my operating system on the c partition without erasing the data (for example my files) on partitions d and e.

    I did this on a Toshiba Satellite L10 using suggestions in this forum, but I don't know how to do it on my own. Is the user interface for the recovery/re-resettlement is not the same thing, so I'm afraid to lose my data if I proceed with the re-install without knowing what to do.

    Could you please say on how to make the re-installation of operating system only on the c partition without deleting (data on) other existing partitions.

    Thank you!

    > I was wandering if it would be possible to reinstall (get as long as the factory) my operating system on the c partition without erasing the data (for example my files) on partitions d and e.

    No, this is not possible. The recovery disk would format the whole HARD drive and therefore the partitions created on the HARD drive would be so removed.
    I recommend you to create a backup of the files before starting the recovery procedure.

  • Satellite A100 - 784 PSAANE: Installation of Vista Edition Home Premium processor in a box

    Hi guys, I would like to ask you a difficult question for me :)

    I have Toshiba Satellite A100 - 784 PSAANE with Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit OEM Czech and
    DVD from Toshiba product recovery. I converted (boxed) Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 Eng as a gift
    There are. And now to the point :) - I would like to install this new Vista Home Premium instead of
    Home base OEM.

    1.) am I allowed to install Home Premium without any problem? (I'm worried the WinRE partition)

    2.) if I can't do it because of the WinRE partition, can I save this partition and remove it?

    (3.) if I do, I am able to download all the drivers from Toshiba site driver Toshiba (value
    added package for the most part)?

    4.) I am able to download all the utilities Toshiba?

    5.) if I use the product Recovery DVD in the future (with this Home Basic OEM), it will work if WinRE partition
    is deleted?

    Thank you for your response.


    (1) you can install the new Vista easily. When installing new Vista installation program should create a new WinRE partition too. If don t be worried. But I recommend creating a backup of your important files such as mp3, photos, etc...

    (2) you can do the installation should be possible and should go smoothly. But don t forget to include the SATA drivers that are necessary to recognize the HARD drive. On the Toshiba page, you might find the Intel Storage Manager that contains the SATA driver. Include the driver during the installation procedure using the F6 key.

    (3) Yes, Vista drivers should appear on the page of the European driver Toshiba.

    (4) see point 3 ;)

    (5) the product recovery DVD will format the whole HARD drive. It will delete the partitions and all will remove the HARD drive. And it will also create the new WinRE partition. Simply said; the Toshiba Vista recovery DVDs will fix the laptop back to factory settings

  • Re: How to create a partition for instant recovery on Satellite A100 PSAA9E

    .. .This can be a difficult issue but I wil give it a shot...

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 PSAA9E and a defined recovery disk.
    In the recovery for the operating system (win xp MCE) disk there are two iso: PEbase.iso and the HDbase.iso.
    After some snooping in the Northeast, I discovered what an enivorment of preinstallation and installation (sysprep) prepared.

    Now I wonder if it can be so simple place the image .tpa from the recovery disk in partition and install it whit a pe that works directly from this partition.

    The only real obstacle is that there is some .inf and .sif PES statically to the installation partition, which can be useful to know what has changed from the original version of xp MCE.

    I know that the question is not easy but I hope that in the expertise of the admins


    > Now I m wondering if it can be so simple place the image .tpa of recovery in a disk partition and install it whit a pe that works directly from this partition.

    I doubt that it will work to be honest, I've never tested so I can't say exactly if it will work or not but in my opinion it is not possible

    New laptop model are equipped in HARD drive recovery option, but this recovery works completely different. There is an additional menu that allows to start the HDD recovery procedure.

    Your laptop supports the recovery disk and that disk must be used to retrieve the laptop.

    By the way; I have a Norton Ghost utility. I create my own image using this tool and placed it on the second partition. If something goes wrong with my OS I can restore the entire system using the shadow and the filename of the image to the other partition.

  • Issue of the upgrade to Vista - Satellite A100 (PSAA9)

    Well, I think to upgrade to windows vista from my laptop (Toshiba Satellite A100 (PSAA9)). I was researching (little) on the drivers and hardware compatibility with vista, and it seems that if I update now, I can't find major problems. Is this true?
    I ask because when I was looking for drivers for vista, I found many (and some of those that exist, I can't download them!) But even without a driver, vista will recognize and install drivers 'default' for the material of my laptop? Can someone answer this with some?
    My major concern is connectivity: lan and wireless! I'll be able to install the hardware drivers to operate these two things?

    Thank you very much to all those who somehow tries to help with these issues!
    Good bye.


    I upgraded my and installed all the drivers from the card reader SD me just used for XP drivers and they worked very well. There are a lot of vista drivers now available for this model, although I am having trouble with the value added package to allow me to use the function keys and access keys.

    Apart from that, I had no other problems!

    Good luck... Let me know if value-added package that works for you, seems to be working for some but not for others.

    See you soon


  • Satellite A100 - cannot find the recovery disk to restore to factory settings

    I hope someone can help out me?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite A100, model PSAANA-04E005 under Windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 32-bit. I am wanting to sell, but have all my programs stuff etc I want to erase files and be able to convey simple with system also when I bought. Memory (purchased January 2007) gave me a Toshiba Recovery with this power drive do something if I needed it's of course is not the case to be foundI.

    Is there anyway I can fix this? All I can download etc to do this?

    Thanks heaps


    If you n t find the recovery disk more and you want to restore the original settings, ask an authorized service provider. Guys can put in order a new disc of recovery for you.
    You have the address of the guy?

    Alternative, you can also sell the laptop without recovery disks. Just wipe the HARD drive before selling it with the HARD drive like s boot cleaning tool Darik and nuke or some other program.

    But I think you get a better price if it comes with recovery disks ;)

  • Satellite A100 PSAA9A - how to reset fingerprints

    This is a "Satellite A100 PSAA9A-1L400F" and will not get beyond the "scan finger print" newspaper on the screen.
    The finger print scan is always feel like I scan my finger or ask me to enter the password.

    Someone please tell me can I reset, to bypass or disable this function? otherwise, I can't use the phone more.

    Thank you very much


    As you said; the fingerprint application for fingerprint or password.
    Generally if you have configured the footprint then you need to enter the password in case something would be wrong with the fingerprint reader.

    If you cannot use the fingerprint and don t know the password that you put everything in the fingerprints configuration then you can't do anything only the ASP can delete and remove the security.

    Therefore, you will need to contact a local technician to ASP and having to ask for help.

  • How to create a new image complete for Satellite A100 PSAA9E?

    My Satellite A100 PSAA9E is so amazing slow, in my view, that the only option is to uninstall everything. I mean how do I restore my laptop to its original condition inlc. last units of driver.

    Best regards


    Before performing a new installation, you can clean your system using a software like TuneUp utilities. This is shareware, but you can use it for free for a month. It cleans up the registry, removes matched files, and...
    If you want to restore their original state, use recovery discs or hard drive recovery image (by pressing F8 at startup). If you burn and missing hard drive recovery image, you can order from Toshiba for money or get a copy of windows for installation (all drivers you will find on the page of the Toshiba driver)

  • Satellite A100 (PSAA9A) and Vista DVD maker problem

    I just got windows ultimate on my laptop that I got about 2 and a half years and he says about this Windows Vista capable. So I have to drop out and everything but when I open something like Vista DVD maker, he says that my video card meets the minimum requirements.

    Check my driver and it says Standard VGA graphics card? Strange huh? So went on Notebook driver downloads > Satellite > A100 (PSAA9), but then he only gave me the opportunity to PSAA9E and I need A at the end.

    In any case I put t know whether or not that counts, but I downloaded the driver and check the update driver > Browse pilot, first of all it only let me not click Desktop and didn t let me inside the office even with submenu.

    So I just clicked next and guess what! After all that palaver he said the pilot has the last updated and doesn t need to be installed but it obviously hasn't t because it's model is something starting with 6 and the driver Vista I want download it something starting with 7, so I'm really stuck and really help.

    Thank you


    At the bottom of the unit, you should find the name of detailed; something like Satellite A100 - xxx PSA.

    Could you please post this number and name?

    The A100 is certainly capable of Vista, but this does not mean that you can use all the features of Vista.
    My other laptop manufacturer is Vista capable, but for example the doesn t run Vista Aero due to the performance of the weak graphics card.

    Creating Windows DVD is available in Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, but some features may require advanced or additional hardware.

    Check this box:

    In any case, the graphics driver on the right must be installed to ensure that such feature Vista can run correctly.
