Satellite A200-12s - not boot from the CD/DVD drive


My Satellite A200-12 s does not start on CDDVD. It is well recognized in the bios. In the trunk is first CDDVD. Under Windows, it works perfectly.

Thank you for your help

Hi michel_91,

If the drive works properly in Windows, it seems to be related to your startup disk. I put t know which drive you are trying to boot from, but you should try another. Maybe it s scratched or something else in order to test another.

    You are not able to boot from the CD/DVD drive?
    If you are unable to change the boot order in the BIOS, I would advise you by pressing the F12 key immediately after starting the laptop.
    A start menu should appear, then you should be able to choose the reader of CD/DVD (ODD).

    You can also try clicking on the C instead of the F12 button. The C button the STRANGE start.

    Check this back and forth!

  • Re: satellite A300 screen turns off after the toshiba logo, will not boot from the CD/DVD

    Hello, I have this problem with Toshiba satellite A300.

    I deleted several files and folders of my drives C and E. To restart the computer, it only shows the Toshiba logo then a slightly gray white screen on a thorough inspection. Whenever I press CRL + ALT + DELETE, the computer restarts and behaves in the same way.

    I tried to use an external monitor, but there is no difference. The tent to start using a CD/DVD, same behaviour occurs, it does not start and screen remains blank after the Toshiba logo, I tried even to change g the order of boot, but in vain.

    What could happen?
    Thanks in advance.


    It seems that you deleted system files and Windows no longer starts. Have you tried to restore the disk image factory settings or hard drive recovery? Or do copy the Windows installation... It is easier to reinstall rather fix the problem.

  • SA30-414 boot from the floppy USB drive

    Hi all!

    I'm tryin to get my my satellite A30-414 to boot from the floppy USB drive and enter the dos mode, but all I get is a black screen (without a slider, of course!), and then the windows XP login page directly. Can you tell me if this model has a boot device menu shortcut keyboard?

    Also, I may be permanently changed some configurations of starting (to know by pressing F12 at startup, then press F2 to try later) with my attempts to get the machine to boot from the floppy drive: now even when the floppy drive is not connected, I get this black screen awkward and then, after a few seconds, the logon windows page. How do I access the Setup menu and check?

    Thank you in advance for your help!


    You can access the start menu by pressing the F2 key during the boot process. This will take you in the "setup" menu where you can change the order of selection of boot device as well as the other BIOS settings permanently.

    Kind regards

  • Re: Satellite C650D-12J refuses to boot from the recovery DVD


    I have a Toshiba Satellite C650D-12J which has recently been ravaged by a virus and now refuses to start. Whenever he tries to boot into Windows, it restarts and blue screens.

    I ordered the Toshiba recovery media as the most simple solution is to recover the laptop and restore the default settings.

    However, when I insert the recovery DVD and choose to boot from the CD/DVD get them all is a loading bar that turns to a black screen with the white cursor. It's her!

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

  • Can not boot from the CD to recover OS - Portege M200


    I'm working on my Portege M200 friends that she bought used. Only, it came with an external USB CDROM drive and the laptop computer AC adapter. To make things better the HD is no longer recognized by the BIOS. I had a spare HD so I installed it and now the BIOS see the new HD, Yay!

    I also discovered that I could buy a replacement Toshiba system recovery CD, new Yay! But before I do that I wanted to make sure I could boot from the external CDROM drive. I plugged the CDROM drive and attempted to start on a spare windows xp CD. But it does not start on the CD. I made sure that the CD-rom drive has been first in the BIOS boot priority, but that doesn't seem to work.

    I read the other posts that mention the boot directly from the external CD-rom USB drive does not work and I have to boot to the CD-rom drive by plugging the CD-rom drive in a PCMCIA card. If I have to buy a PCMCIA card that has USB ports for connecting external USB CDROM drive in for I can boot from a CD?

    If there will be any brand/type of work? If this is not the case, what brand/type is known to work.
    Any advise will be greatly appreciated!

    BIOS of the portege recognise only a limited number of pcmcia-CD-disks

    in this thread you will find all the information you need:𑘋

    but your portege also boots most of the readers of usb_FDD; If you make a BACK-boot disk with the appropriate drivers for your CD-ROM usb drive you can use it without restrictions bios

    as you can read that this method will work only in a DOS environment, that is why it is absolutely necessary to format your hard drive to fat32, otherwise it will not be recognized

    Hi dynamitenews


    1. are you able to boot to the desktop?
    2. what happens when you try to start the computer?


    You must have the DVD drive to start the computer using the disk, you cannot use the external hard drive to do the same thing.

    Also I suggest you to make sure you have defined the start as CD/DVD-Rom as the first choice option in the BIOS. See below the help link-

    If nothing is done, then you can contact the manufacturer support for assistance on setting up the correct boot sequence and check.

    Change (CMOS) BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Changes to settings are at your own risk.


    I hope this helps.

  • ENVY of HP dv6-7246us SSD Upgrade, problem Windows 7 installation with boot from a usb/dvd drive.

    Hi all

    I recently bought the dv6-7246us and have updated for one SSD HARD drive. The problem I have now is I can't boot from usb or dvd drive that contains the Windows 7installation. Initially, this laptop has a HDD with Windows 8. I changed the boot order to boot from the USB drive and the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive several times and have still no chance to start to the top of the installation. Is there a solution to this problem?

    Thank you


    Hi, Robert:

    Go you into the BIOS and change in legacy Mode?

    I think that you need to do in order to boot from another device other than the hard drive.

  • Satellite A200 - 19L can not boot from the CD

    Hi guys,.

    I'm glad I found this forum site, I pretty well hope to find a solution here.

    Well, this problem is not very complicated, in fact my DVD player (model TS-L632) is not read more, so much so I decided to change with a new one, but it is not the same model as the original drive.
    It is the case of the generic DVD player really.

    Now when I inserted my recovery disk or any bootable disk is not booting the CD, and when I press F12 for I can't find any CD/DVD drive, but running in Windows I can't find the DVD player and it can read any CD priority boot normally.

    Just having the problem while booting from CD.
    I thought that maybe there is no security for this model that locked some hardware.
    So please guys want to help me how to understand it,

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    > When I press F12 for boot priority I can't find any CD/DVD drive, but running in Windows I can find the DVD player and it can normally read any CD.

    The whole story seems really strange to me
    If you access the BIOS, you can see the details of the CD/DVD drive? The drive is recognized properly?

    If not then I guess that the STRANGE inserted is not totally compatible due to different master/slave/c-salt settings.

    > but running in Windows I can find the DVD player and it can normally read any CD
    It s also strange to me so that the CD/DVD drive appears in Device Manager even if the CD/DVD drive Startup menu option does not appear.

    But first check the BIOS

  • NB100 will not boot from the XP CD in the external USB CD/DVD drive

    I try to install XP Home in my NB100
    The netbook still refuses to boot from the XP CD. It's just not more
    Returns the current operating system (Ubuntu) or give the error "Could not find NTLDR" dreaded.
    And yet - it will boot from an Ubuntu Live CD disk perfectly fine, AND
    If I connect this external hard drive on my computer Windows 7, (another Toshiba
    Portable satellite) that the machine starts quite successfully since the XP CD
    in the same external drive!

    Can anyone throw any light on what is happening on Earth on?


    There are various reasons why this error message:
    In most cases this error because the laptop is trying to boot from a HARD drive or flash drive that is not configured correctly. Maybe the drive is not bootable or not compatible.

    It would also be possible that some sectors on the HARD disk, HARD drive failures are corrupt or BIOS is damaged. NTLDR error messages may also appear if the master boot record is damaged.

    In your case I recommend that you format the first HARD drive before booting from the hard drive CD7DVD external using Win XP CD.

    By the way: you must add SATA driver to CD Win XP using nLite.
    The SATA driver is placed on the European driver Toshiba page in the Intel Storage Manager

    The SATA driver is needed to recognize the HDD by Win XP!
