Satellite A50 - recovery disk is not working
I'm trying to do a clean install on my laptop, but the recovery disk is not working.
The files transferred to the laptop, but once done, I get an error message that says: "the system is not fully installed. Please run Setup again."
Does anyone have suggestions as to how to fix it?
It took me four days to get to this point and make me very frustrated.
What is the installation using another CD; That is to say the Microsoft Windows XP disk?
Have you tried that?
In my opinion, this would help to pinpoint the problem
The error message can be linked to different issues; I mean the HARD drive or a single partition problem could also be possible.
Try to format the drive HARD whole again. Delete all partitions from the HARD drive and check if you can proceed with the installation.
But if you will not be able to install the OS by using the recovery disk and other disks then a question must relate to a part of the material. (possibly HDD)
I try to use the recovery for Satellite 5200 disk but it won't work. I have the recovery disk in the DVD player and I tried holding C and also tried to change the boot sequence by pressing F12 at startup to the top but he's not in it.
Someone at - it ideas?
Is there a problem with the drive while the OS is running? Try to use different bootable CD and see exactly what is happening.
My laptop's daughter was so slow, that we decided to take it back to factory settings. There is no disk recovery with the laptop because it has the repair work however when we did the computer is no longer started upward and when we started it in safe mode, the repair option was gone!
I've then went to Toshiba.eu and bought the recovery disc, seem to work, load files etc and then says loading windows, but the screen just goes black.
I can't find a phone number or contact point on the invoice and if I will have to consider in a shop to repair I don t want to have paid for both disks that do not work!
I do something wrong or can any one help?
New laptops are available with preinstalled operating system and without recovery disk but in user s manual is clearly described that you can create this preinstalled software recovery disk Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.
I m wondering really you didn't mark this option.
In any case, try to reuse this disc to see if the problem occurs again and again. If you will not be able to install the original recovery image I recommend you contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.
After getting some annoying adware that I couldn't get rid of, I decided to format my hard drive and my notebook back to factory... something that I couldn't do.
First of all, I inserted the disc, and in no way I couldn't take. I tried to run on the start menu, I browsed the records and sought some sort of file that would open up the normal Wizard... etc... nothing... I rebooted to see if it would start... nothing...
I went into the setup (f2) and asked him to initialize the disk. He then says "Loading ram disk image" with a progress bar... the bar ends, the screen empties and that restarts, get to the same point and restarts continuously.
I found this thread with a guy with exactly the same problem here:
He described his solution, but I have no idea what he's talking about.
I got this 'product Recovery DVD-ROM' and no other discs. I can't get into windows, I can only get f2 and the parameters it and watch it to restart... I can't do anything with it at all.
Stunned by using the made recovery disc my laptop unusable as before when it was just annoying ad sites in...
Any help would be appreciated.
I checked the link in your ad, and the other person started the laptop with the Linux Boot CD to format and delete partitions on HARD drive integers.
I recommend to do the same thing. Delete the partitions and format the drive HARD and then try to recover the laptop with the Toshiba Recovery CD supplied.
XP Recovery disk does not work. The 3 options are unresponsive. Is there an easy solution. All other functions of cell phones seem ok. It is a reliable machine for more than 3 years, but now must use the recovery disc. Brilliant ideas greatly appreciated.
Well, I put t know why you recovery CD doesn t work. Have you checked the CD some scratches? Have you tried to clean this CD?
However if it of impossible to use the recovery CD, you can contact the ASP and buy a new one. It doesn t expensive.
In addition, you can install an original Windows operating system and then all the Toshiba necessary drivers on the Toshiba site.
I have a HP G62 339WM Notebook PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I bought by mail, system recovery discs and they do not work. And my HP Support Assistant displays "an error has occurred" and end not updates.
The Troubleshooting Guide for the recovery started from CD or DVD says: "update the firmware of the drive. This is especially true if the disks were received from HP customer service by mail. The firmware of a DVD player (the pilot) isn't able to recognize the support of recovery disk which was created using a newer DVD manufacturing process. Download and install updates on the firmware of the DVD available at HP that corresponds to the type of DVD drive on your computer. »
How do I update the firmware of the player when my HP Support Assistant would conduct no updates. I downloaded the latest Hp Support Assistant and he always always says "an error has occurred."
My laptop model has no updates from HP.
As new as your laptop is I doubt you need a firmware update for the CD/DVD drive.
Could you give a little more detail also the recovery disks do not work. For example you get an error, or is the laptop just not boot from them and goes directly into Windows?
Have you tried to put the first disc in the drive, shut down the laptop, wait a minute or two and turn on the laptop, start typing the ESCAPE key to get the menu. Should be an option of F9 to select the boot device. Select the CD/DVD drive and press ENTER.
I'm not so happy owner of a HP Pavilion S3120N. I am running windows vista home edition. The motherboard went out so I replaced it with a Zotac GeForce 8200 - ITX Wifi series. Now the computer says it is noa a hp solution valid, and the recovery disks do not work. is there a way to fix this without buying a new operating system?
Yes, return the Zotac motherboard and get an OEM HP/Compaq M2NC51-AR / HematiteXL-GL8E motherboard. I know that's not the answer you want to hear, but the recovery discs are locked to a specific set of HP/Compaq machines with specific HP OEM motherboards. Apart from this, you will need to buy a new OS.
I have a toshiba Satellite C650, who has recently developed with a disc read error. I want to access the command prompt to try some possible solutions I've read on the internet.
I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other acer laptop which has also installed Windows 7 64-bit. When I use the recovery disk and it loaded the files etc it evokes just a black screen and the cursor.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?
I tried to start my computer acer laptop from the recovery disk and it worked fine.
As is - this does anyone have suggestions as to why I get the message "disk read error - press ctrl, alt and delete to restart?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
On this virtual path, it is not easy to offer the exact diagnosis, but of course, there must be a problem with the HARD drive. Can you get a second one for test purposes and exchange it. Just to be sure if the HDD is troublemaker.
But there is something else:
> I made a Windows 7 recovery disk using my other computer acer laptop...
Sorry, but I don t understand this. Can you please explain what you did exactly?

I also have the map on E:\HDDRecovery with all the files in it (4.12 GB).
Is there a way that the program works or can I make HDDRecovery map an ISO image and burn it to a cd?
> I do not have to uninstall the program, it is also on my list of software. I can see the program in C:\Program Toshiba Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator, but when I click on ToRDC.exe it does not start.
Sorry for my question but what you want to do exactly?
You want to retrieve the laptop using the recovery disk or you want to create a recovery disk?
The Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator creates the recovery disk using files in HARD disk recovery file that is placed on the second partition.
If you want to recover the laptop, then you simply boot from the recovery disc.

Can someone help me?
Thank you, Kris
The reader at the link below must be compatible with your laptop and will offer a little more storage. You might well be able to install a hard drive with a larger capacity, but this should be a choice course.
I hope this helps.

I replaced my hard drive on my laptop HP - computer pavilion dv7 notebook. My recovery disks do not seem to work now, I get to 62% completion and then the error message "Recovery Manager is unable to restore your computer by using the original image. Please contact HP support. "Error code: 0xe0ef000e" do I need to buy a new HP recovery discs? Thanks, Nick
Unfortunately, I don't have any experience in troubleshooting these special software installations.
We should expect to download and install.
If they are not, I have no tricks up my sleeve for you to try.
I recommend starting a new thread describing your questions with this software and hope that someone else in the support forum can help you with these items.
See you soon,.
I have a Satellite A50 who I am rebuilding. I insert the recovery disk came with the laptop. I get a window with the message
"This recovery and Applications CD is not configured to work with this machine (laptop). This CD is for: Satellite A50. Please use the good recovery and Applications CD".
I'm looking at this message. I look at my laptop with Satellite A50 wrote about it. And I don't know what to do next. Can anyone help?
Thank you... Peter
I agree with Bob. Mobo was traded in the past?
I have an old Satellite A30-203 and have a problem. I tried to format my laptop but the product recovery cd does not seem to work in deletion the data on my disk, its becomes blocked during loading files of ntfs? Now I am not able to retrieve a windows session would I need a new product recovery cd and would be able to get it?
It is difficult to say what is the reason of this but made is either it s a laptop problem itself or the recovery disc (e.g. scratches) causes this problem.
In my opinion the best way to check this using a Microsoft Windows disk. If the installation completed successfully, you need a new recovery disk. As a result, you can ask a service provider authorized in your country! :)
I'm selling my laptop.
Went to use recovery of original product CD provided along with the PC.
1 disc worked OK - unfortunately 2nd disc (undamaged) stops at about 60 percent and gives the following message;
error number 437
Can not read the file
version: 7,00 (Apr 2001 19, build 254).
command line arguments: - clone, mode is pload, srx = x: \01367000.GHO:1, dst = 1:1 - batch

Name of the path:

State of IRQ of mouse: no IRQ (0)
I have a buyer waiting and everything seems to be Dutch!
It's not easy to say what's wrong with the 2nd recovery disk.
I would recommend formatting the HARD drive completely and try again to recover the operating system. If it doesn't work, well try to contact Toshiba. Here, you can order the recovery CD. Maybe the problem of recovery will be solved as a gesture of goodwill.
Nevertheless, the recovery cd is not expensive.
