Satellite A100-068 - for Windows Vista recovery disk


I have a Satellite A100-068 where Windows broke down. When I turn it on it says configuration update 3 of 3. After awhile it will restart and returns with the same message. It is not possible to boot into safe mode. (Same problem). I searched the net for a concludes but only found that I have to reinstall windows (Vista Home premeum). My problem is that I Don t equipped of a Medea. The PC came with windows pre-installed, and there was no partition of medea or recovery disk recovery.

Is it possible to buy DVDs that will work with the OEM installation (in Danish) license, or I can get a toshiba restore disk or?

Please help me out here.



Normally, you need to create this recovery disc yourself using pre-installed recovery disc creator, but I think that now it s too late because Windows doesn't start anymore.

But you can order the CD here:

If you can t order it, ask an authorized service provider. Alternative use a normal disc of Microsoft and the drivers of Toshiba page.

  • Satellite Pro A120-185 - need Vista Recovery disk - never get a

    Hello, my trusty Satellite Pro C: is completely filled, and so I would wipe and do complete a new installation of Windows.

    It came with VISTA on it when I bought it several years ago.

    It's a Satellite Pro A120-185 and the operating system only disk I got with it was just something to 'upgrade' disc of Vista.
    I bought and paid for Windows Vista with the laptop, thus so I wouldn't have a license can I reinstall?

    Please note that I am an advanced PC user, I'm not looking for ways to reduce the space that my household is good and I uninstalled everything I do not use or need.

    I just want to be able to clean the laptop and reinstall Windows Vista... is it going to be possible? (I don't see why it shouldn't be because Vista came with the laptop!). Please tell me where I can get the windows disk since?

    Hi dude

    Read the other discussions on this topic even here in the forum.

    You didn t get this disk because you create the recovery disk using the Toshiba recovery disc Creator called pre-installed tool.
    This was mentioned in the manual as well!

    However, here you can order the recovery disk that you didn't create yourself.


  • Satellite A100: Language for the Vista issue

    Hey all,.

    I just bought myself a Satellite A100 something something with Vista Home premium.

    When I turned on the computer on windows, it has proved to be the French. That in itself is not surprising, as I live in Belgium, where people speak Dutch and French. "Not a problem," I thought: "this manual is in French, Dutch and English, and therefore all the documentation.

    I'm sure the restore disc has all three languages out there, and I'll simply choose English. Or even the Dutch one for that matter. Anything other than the French! »

    So I start from the restore disc, and, Oh surprise, there are three languages out there: French, Dutch and English. Unfortunately, the computer won't let me choose any language but French because "you have selected French, now, you're stuck with it. (off bugger) ", or something like that.

    Unfortunately, I never selected French: the Distributor, or Toshiba himself has made. Is it possible to bypass this protection, or I'll have to return the laptop and make sure that I do not get a French?

    Thank you



    One question: has Vista already installed on the laptop when you started the laptop for the first time?
    Usually the Vista operating system there are on the HARD drive, but if you turn on the laptop for the first time, you should get the CONFIGURATION window and you should be able to set all the parameters such as language, country and keyboard by yourself.

    By the way; This is not a bug in recovery CD! As far as I know, you can only choose one language from the recovery CD that supports 3 languages. I guess that this State is saved in the BIOS or elsewhere and you can select only this language which was chosen at the first time.

    In your case I contact the dealer of the new laptop and ask the guy if they or someone else has already installed the OS on this laptop

  • Satellite L300 - cannot enter Windows and recovery disk will not stand

    Good evening

    I have a Satellite L300. A month ago, I bought and install an upgrade to Windows 7 (I had Vista). Last night, my laptop was working fine and this morning when I opened it I got this error:

    BOOTMGR is corrupt. the system cannot start.

    I did some research and tried to boot from the recovery disc. Laptop computer the disc I get the windows is looding files screen and then a company Microsoft is displayed with a bar above it and then I get a blue screen that says:


    Now what can I do to reformat my computer and reinstall if I can't load the recovery disc!

    I tried to put my DVD of Vista I have for my other PC, but I have another error black screen...

    Can someone tell me what I can do now?

    Is it because I have a recovery CD for Windows Vista and not 7?

    Okay, so I read several post here and the only thing I can't think is the hard drive... but it had already changed a few months ago by Toshiba... now my laptop is not less guarantee more with Toshiba, but I have an extended warranty with my VISA... If anyone has any idea here, I'll try to bring it where they change HARD drive the last time...

  • Windows vista recovery disk.

    My hard drive crashed recently. Fearing the worst, I bought a new drive hard by I am unable to find my recovery disk. I always have my validation code. I got my computer to reboot, but I don't want to take any chances with the old hard drive. Is it possible that I can do a windows recovery disc, so I can run on the new drive before he decides to hang again. Also, I contacted the manufacturer and they said they no longer offer the vista recovery disks.

    Standard support vof vista is complete.  You may be able to get a dvd of Vista but if vista came pre-installed you will need to find an OEM copy.  I doubt you'll find one.  Might want to try eBay (but make sure that it is legitimate)

    If you can't find one that maybe this is the time for you to upgrade to win 7.

  • Where to get the Windows vista recovery disk to do a clean install?

    Where can I get the windows vista for any new installation disk. Both my recovery disk & HDD crashed. I had windows vista preinstalled.


    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • How Downgrade Satellite A100-411 for Windows XP Home edition?


    I just bought this laptop soft which has Windows Vista installed.
    Unfortunately, I have to install Windows XP, but in the download section there is no drivers yet for this specific model series called PSAARE.

    Are there other drivers series there?

    Hi Gerhard

    I m surprised that you want to downgrade the OS for XP because most of the people here in the forum ask the Vista upgrade and Vista drivers!
    However, I think that most of the devices or parts are the same in the books series A100 and in my opinion you should try to use drivers from another A100 series
    Before installing the driver compare the portable devices and if another computer laptop uses the same device then you can also use the driver
    Good luck

    My disc charger does not work because of my nieces, thinking it was hunger and feed cat food, so I thought that I can do a restore by using a flash player. I tried to download an iso of restoration of the Download Center:
