Satellite C870 - 1 K 1 and replacing hard drive


I would like to replace the hard drive of wonderful this notebook with a hard disk of 500 GB 750.
How should I proceed with the Windows installed on the original hard drive, the migration to the new.
I do not have a CD ROM of Windows 8, was not included when I bought the laptop

Thanks for your help and suggestions...

If you use your laptop with an original operating system preinstalled, you can create recovery media using pre-installed recovery media creator tool. After replacing HARD drive, you can use this media and reinstall the original recovery image.

After that your laptop will again have to factory settings.

  • Satellite 1410 714 extremely slow after replacing HARD drive


    I have a Satellite 1410-714 which has had a hard drive failure. I replaced the drive, but now the computer is extremely slow. Windows has been reinstalled, it was really slow too much and now it takes minutes for windows to start.

    I suspect that something might have broken on the motherboard and the hard disk. I checked mobo replacement parts, but have not found anything for-714, so a 1410 mobo compatible? This model has a processor celeron 1.8.

    Thanks for help.



    I can t think the motherboard is broken after replacing HARD drive.
    I suggest updating the BIOS first. Maybe your old BIOS have a few problems with the most recent HARD drive.
    Please check site driver Toshiba for the latest version of BIOS.

  • Satellite C650, media recovery fails after replacing HARD drive

    I have a 3 years C650, and the HARD drive has failed. I got a replacement drive and sorts to recover from the recovery media disks that I created and although he claimed to have re - partition the drive and reinstalled windows, windows startup fails when tried to configure the devices "could not configure windows to run on this hardware.

    After this error, the boot sequence goes into an endless loop, asking to start the installation procedure.

    Thinking that my records may have been corrupted, I ordered a set of Toshiba recovery disks. Once again, these go through the recovery process and still once, Windows startup does not exactly in the same place.

    A little annoying to have spent £30 for nothing.

    I have a picture of Windows system on my external HARD drive, but I can't get the machine to a point where it will actually start so I can recover from that.

    Any suggestions on how to proceed is welcome!

    Thank you


    Of course, this isn't a problem of recovery disk.
    I guess there is a problem with the HARD drive but I n t think that the HARD drive has failed I think there is a problem of setting

    First, you should go to BIOS and check if the SATA set to AHCI.
    Then you should also format the HARD drive again.

    I recommend to use the freeware tool called GParted. You could create a live USB stick bootable flash memory which will allow you to start the unit and start GParted tool.
    Format the HARD drive, and then create a partition.

    After that, take the recovery disk and start the recovery procedure.
    Good luck

  • Satellite P50T-A01C and replacement HARD drive


    I just bought a P50T-A01c laptop, I want to replace the hard drive with an ssd
    does anyone have any info on how what he does?

    Thanks for your time in advance.


    I guess as the extensible part HDD isn t user because there is no separate access to the HARD drive Bay. It seems that only modules of memory are scalable user due to easy access to the memory modules.

    To access the HARD drive, remove the bottom cover, and in my opinion, this would nullify your warranty.

  • satellite 2520cdt is very slow after replacing HARD drive

    My Satellite 2520 CDT is the HARD Mk 4309 MAST 4.3 GB default disk. I replaced the with the Toshiba MK 2016 GAP of 20 GB.
    I use Windows 98 since the original installation CD. The laptop is now very slow, it takes minutes to start programs, etc.

    I installed the latest BIOS with no improvement. Probably the laptop cannot manage the size of the HARD drive.

    Is there a solution?


    I had the same suggestion. I think that the large size of the HARD disk is responsible to slowly start performance. But I wonder why BIOS recognize the HARD drive?
    However, try to defragment the HARD drive.

  • Satellite T110-107 restore win7 after replacing hard drive

    I am now out of UK to work, won't be back in a few years

    I had problems with my hardrive to the satellite T110-107 and unable to start my laptop
    So I went to the local repair center of Toshiba and replaced my hardrive
    The problem is now I have no operating system in my new hardrive

    I am able to restore my previous pre-installed system?
    pls pls pls someone tell me?

    Thank you so much!


    Of course, you can install / recover the computer laptop back to factory settings.
    To do this, you will need the drive recovery Toshiba for this device.
    This disc can be ordered here:

    But the Satellite T110 does not seem to be equipped with an internal optical drive.
    So, you will need to connect an external USB ODD in order to be able to recover this unit.

    You will buy this external USB CD/DVD drive or you would borrow such a device someone

  • Satellite L300D-10 q recovery DVD Can be used on the replacement hard drive?


    I was wondering if the DVD Recovery allows to install Vista on a replacement hard drive? The original hard drive is too small at 160 GB contain all the files that I use the virtual operating system image. The disk hard 500 GB of replacement must be large enough for that.

    The reason why I need to Vista, it's that the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu 8.04.1 and 8.10, cause the fan to run at full speed all the time which is very annoying. So for the moment I can only use Linux in a virtual machine.

    I intend to stay with Toshiba, though, as my two latest portable Toshiba Satellite a PII and a PIII still work today, and both have had Linux on them.

    Now, back to my story, I intend to remove the existing laptop, hard drive use DVD recovery to install to external USB 500 GB disk, replace the existing hard drive in starting up the laptop from the USB and copy my data overall. Before you reformat the old drive as external storage, I will replace in the laptop with 500 GB drive and the test so I can boot from the new drive.

    Key question will be the change of equipment, i.e. the new hard disk of 500 GB prevent Vista to install or activate?

    Thank you very much

    Vista itself can handle huge HARD drive sizes, but the question is: the recovery disc will be happy with 500 GB? The laptop will recognize 500 GB?

    I think it will work very well, because the new laptops are released with 320 HARD drive. 500 GB is not far.

    Its a few trial and error unless anyone here has tested a disc 500 GB HARD themselves.

  • Re: Satellite Pro A300-1EA: can I use faster and bigger HARD drive?

    So this may seem like a stupid question, but if I intend to spend of the installed 160 GB 5400 RPM HDD of the Satellite Pro A300 1EA to a 7200 RPM drive HARD (do not know the ability yet) and I was wondering how to make recovery disks (downgrade from Vista professional and XP Professional) coming with the work of the laptop with the HARD disk that does not part of factory as drives for my understanding restore the system...

    The size of the drive HARD replacement has something to do with the thing?
    If the replacement HARD drive is also 160 GB system see the difference? And even if it was smaller or larger the system see the difference?

    I have not even bought the laptop but will soon and it is a little urgent.

    Computer thanks Fellows ahead! :)

    * Oh... It seems that this question has already been answered... a little research has ever killed forum person huh... but if someone has vital information about the issue... Please let me know! :)*

    I think that he should t be a problem with an upgrade to a faster and bigger HARD drive.
    But before you switch the HARD disk, you must create the Toshiba Recovery DVD using the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.
    After the recovery disk has been created, you can move the hard drives.

  • Satellite Pro 2100: How do I reinstall the OS after replacing HARD drive

    I have a Toshiba SP2100 and I want to replace the hard drive, but I don't have any recovery CD
    So, how can I put the o/s back on?

    Try to connect the external HARD drive to the computer via the USB port and try to copy all content from the internal HARD disk external HARD drive. Then you could try to insert the external HARD drive in the laptop.
    But I've never tried this procedure and don t know if it will work.

    But usually after replacing HARD drive you should boot from the Boot CD as recovery CD or the original CD of Microsoft Windows.
    After the installation of clean Windows OS, you can visit the Toshiba drivers and you can download and install the drivers of Toshiba and utilities.

  • Satellite A50 - message from system disk insert after replacing HARD drive


    I have an old A50 and the HARD drive comes with it's very slow and cracking now, so I'm trying to replace it with a new HDD - Hitachi travelstar 7200 RPM of 60 GB, with ATA interface.

    I took the old HDD and put the new, then on A50 and press F12, and then insert the CD recovery and restored (installation) everything on the new HARD drive. Once it's done, I rebooted A50, but what I got is then a black screen with the message "Insert system disk..." Does anyone know what I did wrong? I got tired of it several times, but I got the same results...

    Thank you.

    I think that Akuma is right.

    On FAT32 and Windows 98 should define the active partition, and then it should work.
    Then download a MS-DOS boot disk and burn it to a CD as Akuma has suggested. I tried it and it works :)
    It is quite easy with Nero.

    Good luck!

  • replacement hard drive and using recovery discs made by myself.

    HPdv6 mobile 2119tx. After replacing hard drive and loading the recovery discs (which I did) successfully, now it reboot something messages cannot locate the disc or load bootable disc (sorry, don't remember the exact wording, but back to the beginning). Could this be because I replaced a 650 GB drive with a 500 GB drive.


    Normally you cannot use recovery on a smaller hard disks.

    But you should be able to boot from the first disc of recovery at least and see what happens.

    To do this, you must have the first disc in your dvd player.

    Restart the PC and at the beginning of your homescreen HP, tap key ESC then choose one time start in the menu.  Since then, select the DVD drive and continue.

    If the ESC key method does not work, press the F9 key instead.

    It depends on the type of BIOS in your PC (normally according to his age) which key you need to type.
