Satellite A660-k17: can I remove the two primary partitions used for restoration?

I have 3 questions :) #.

1. I burned a copy dvd recovery media, on a laptop A660 k17. There are two partitions on the disk that I think are there for the recovery. The first is 1.46 GB and it's for the recovery and another partition hidden 8.29 GB... and I think that the first contains the Recovery Wizard and the whole environment in which we will get through the repair of the system and the hidden disk contains the actuall with windows data, drivers and so on. Can I remove these two? I ask mainly on the first, if it is not necessary for the system to boot or something after that I have to recover the laptop to the factory setting.

2 and I also want to leave my partitions so that I don't have to partition the whole drive from C 600 GB again. I have a D drive created but there is this response to a topic already in the forum
who says that when I leave the partitions I created myself, that the recovery will be not available. I have a copy on dvd, but only to make sure no kidding something upward.

3. when I want a clean system without some software which are preloaded on the oem recovery disk... I have to use windows recovery? or it will be the same as the toshiba one?
Thanks for the reply possible :)
Beautiful day :)

First not, but you can remove the Toshiba recovery partition if you created the recovery DVDs. One day, if you want to install the recovery image once again you can use created the recovery disc.

  • Tecra S11 - what are the two primary partitions for?

    Hello everyone

    I just got myself a new Tecra S11 with Win7 64 and there is one thing that has me littlebit wondered.
    In total, there are four partitions, there are for sure the recovery a (1.46 GB) and the system a (256,38 GB), but then there are also two primary partitions (8.86 and 31.38 GB) without displayed use or file system. There is no unallocated space.

    Can someone tell me what are these two partitions? I want to split the system partition to store my data on a separate, if possible I also want to use that 'unknown' space then ;)

    Besides that: don't worry, I already have recovery DVD.


    I put t know why you now have the new structure of the partitions, but the important thing is that you create recovery DVDs and if something goes wrong with the preinstalled recovery image OS or HARD drive you can use DVDs for the installation of the OS.

  • Satellite A660: Where can I find the x 86 (32-bit) drivers?


    I did a hard disk image of my old laptop Toshiba A210 with Windows 7 32 bit and wanted to transfer to the new laptop.
    But where can I find the software and 32-bit drivers for laptop A660?


    I found only three drivers in the list of drivers Win 7 32 bit.
    I guess most of the drivers are for Win 64 bit it makes no sense to use 32 bit Windows 7 due to the problem of 3.2 GB RAM so I recommend you stay with Win 7 64 bit

    However, try released drivers for L500 or A350 series there are a lot of 32-bit drivers

  • How can I remove the microsoft account and use the address as one alias on another?

    So I have two microsoft accounts using gmail addresses, the first is the one who has all my data (throughout the onedrive, Skype, xbox, windows, etc.) and the second has nothing. I want to do is delete the second so that I can use the address as primary on the first alias (as is my most used gmail account). Is this possible?

    account 1: * e-mail address is removed from the privacy *.

    account 2: * e-mail address is removed from the privacy *.

    Hi Dan,.

    Thanks for posting in the Microsoft Community.

    From the description, it seems that you want to remove one of the two Microsoft accounts.

    Once you remove the secondary account from Microsoft, you can use the primary address, but you can go as an alias. 

    To remove a Microsoft account, you can see the Microsoft article and check if that helps:

    Note: Before deleting an account Microsoft make a backup of data.

    You can also consult the Microsoft account and check if it helps:

    To remove the Gmail account, you can green light, making the Gmail Web site.

    Just reply to the State of the question.

    Thank you.

  • How can I remove the grey stars in scoring for iTunes

    Hey there. I've recently updated on my Macbook and in previous iterations, I was able to remove the gray stars in the roundabout way ranking column (with 'Art Show' visible and the edition of the album of note, having 'Album Rating' "visible and edit there, etc.", but now it won't let me change the rating?)

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem this time?

    I can't believe that it is still a problem after all this time.

    Thank you

    This method always works for me. You delete these ratings in a view that displays all the tracks in the album?

  • How can I remove the automatic margins when using list tags?


    I am trying to create a list of links on my Web page using Dreamweaver CS4. I created a .li tag using CSS so that no bullets/numbers appear and then I created .ul a: link, ul a: hover etc tags composed to make all list items in the bearings.

    However, the text in the list indent automatically (like if I put some kind of margin) and so is out of proportion with the text above it. Without margin/padding is defined in any of the CSS so I am confused.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Once you add the margin/padding 0 in your css and close support, everything lines up for me. You can post a screenshot of the problem?

    How can I remove the old DVD to replace with a new one.

    Please help if you can email [email protected]

    Hi, Malcolm

    For this model of laptop, it is quite complicated because the STRANGE is from both sides. First you must remove the small screw placed in the Middle near the coverage of memory in the lower corner of your laptop (also near the cooling rack). The STRANGE is also secured with small hook placed under the keyboard.

    At the right place of this small hook is not known but I know that it is placed somewhere under the keyboard. I don't really know what you need to do. Have you already tried to remove the keyboard?

    I have to be honest and it's not so easy to give instructions here because I don't know if you're familiar with the disassembly. I don't want damage you something on your laptop. Small error can ends with a broken plastic cover. Please be careful.

    Thank you


    This notebook is not know for me but has checked some sites on the net and it seems that the top cover must be removed.
    Then lift the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive to disconnect PJ700 on the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM of PJ15 card on the system board.
    Remove the two screws that fix the Board Connector CD-ROM/DVD-ROM.
    Separate the brace connector connector Office CD-ROM/DVD-ROM and CD-ROM/DVD-ROM CD/DVD-ROM drive

    Well, I think that it of not easy for a person without experience.
    So if you n t know how to do and you have without much experience you should ask someone how knows what to do ;)

  • Satellite L650-1CN: can I remove HDD without voiding my warranty?


    I had a power outage in my laptop that requires him to be returned for repair (see [here |] and [here |] for photos of damage, some of the plastic on the melted screen, probably a short circuit?).

    Before that, I want to take out the hard drive.
    There are two compartments on the bottom of the laptop, secured by a screw.
    I guess that one of them contains the hard drive.

    Can I remove the HDD without voiding my warranty?
    In case the guarantee differs between the countries - I am from the Netherlands, the laptop was purchased in 12/27/2010.

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, you can remove the HARD drive and would not void the warranty.

  • I imported my address books. How can I remove the default empty

    I imported my address from my old computer books in Thunderbird on my new computer. Empty default address books don't seem to be able to be deleted, so I have now two books personal address and two collected addresses, the first of all is the default value for empty one and the second is my populated version. Thunderbird seems to point to the default empty. How can I remove the empty for default Thunderbird to my places.

    Thank you

    I don't think you can remove the default books. I open any personal book, select a contact, do a control + a to select all and drag in the personal address book by default. Then delete the empty book. Then do the same for the collected books.

    You're stuck on the LCD mask?
    As far as I know the LCD mask is covered by two screws that are hidden under the joints.
    You will need to remove both seals of mask LCD, and then you could remove the two screws hidden under the seals mentioned.
    Then, you could put your fingers between the mask and the LCD screen in order to release the LCD mask plastic locks.

    But note; Be careful, don't use any force!
