Satellite L300 - cannot enter Windows and recovery disk will not stand
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...
OK, so I have a laptop Compaq Presario CQ61 with windows 7 64-bit, and it crashed a few weeks ago. I was told to fix it I would need to order the recovery of best2serve discs so I did and they arrived yesterday. Although earlier, I tried to grab the laptop and disks do not work, I set the BIOS to make the player load first, and everything that happens is a small comand window flashes up a gray screen is displayed with a chart of tape on it without any option for me too choose, and he stays on this screen forever.
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.

Someone at - it ideas why my recovery disks won't load, all I get is a window box asking what would like to windows do you, like what you get when you insert a video or music disc, I'm sure the last time I used them only, they went directly into the recovery mode [, I had a major flaw which I managed about sort [see disappear down the page IE] but I need to start printing] Thank you

This means you want to use the recovery disc in Windows? It will not work.
The point is that you must boot from the recovery disc rather Windows on the HARD drive so until the computer starts to go into the start menu and select the CD/DVD drive like device starting. Make sure that the recovery disk is in the drive and the recovery disk will start. Now follow the instructions on the screen.
I don't know why HP recovery disks do not work. It should have been without having to activate the installation.
However, if the W10 worked fine on your PC, and it had been previously activated, you can reinstall W10 without going through the process of upgrading again.
Make installation W10 DVD or USB stick from the link below...
When you install W10, you will be asked to enter a product key (you do not have) and there will be a selection "I don't have a product key.
You choose the option "I don't have a product key", W10 will install and once you are reconnected to the internet, it will activate automatically as Microsoft has a folder that your PC is already legally upgraded to W10.
For some reason, no matter what I do or try, my Toshiba restore disk will not start or load into my disc drive. I hear that many whirring noise and loud clicks, but nothing. I cleaned the disk, I have my BIOS set to boot from the CD/DVD drive. I have the disc, otherwise he would stay all day on a black screen. This leads me into the wall, my laptop is just out of warranty and my games/applications are running slower and slower each day. I can't afford the repairs, I need help! Anyone has any advice for me? Thank you
* edit *: I forgot to mention, some discs not loading in my laptop but they load fine on my desktop (including my Toshiba restore disk) is anyway I can copy the files to my restore disk and create a new one? (I confess that there are some scratches)
It is not easy to say what the problem is here. It may be defective recovery DVD or optical disc drive may be defective.
Try to use some other bootable CD/DVD like Microsoft installations CD or some Linux installations. If any of them work is ODD may be defective.
Recovery image can be copied to the HARD drive and the new creation of media is not possible. If your recovery media cannot be used due to zero you can order the new copy under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

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.
first of all I have to say that my English is not the best ;)
But I hope that you undersrand my problem and help me please
Today I bought a laptop A300
I have the second HDD formatiert
Now I can start windows and I can't fix my system and install new windows
Please help me!
and sorry for my bad English ^^
To be honest I don t understand your question
If you have formatted the drive HARD second it shouldn't be a problem at startup of Windows.
You burned the recovery disk? Then boot from it and install the laptop.
Sorry my English not just

This process will allow you to do a Vista repair disc. This isn't an installation disc, but will allow you to use the Vista Recovery Console that is available on commercial versions of Vista.
Download the file from the link below.
It is a zipped file. If you do not have an extraction utility installed, download and install 7-Zip, when installed, right-click on the zipped folder, select extract files and then click Ok. You should now see another folder containing the ISO file.
You will need software to burn the ISO to a CD. If you don't have that guy on the software installed, download and install ImgBurn and use it to burn the ISO to a CD.
Once you have created the Vista repair disk, follow the guide on the link below to see if it undertakes to repair your installation - you may need to run this several times.

My HDD had major errors of io only 1 month laptop warranty. I can't clone the original disc, its dead. I'm relatively new to Win8 but I bought the factory HP recovery disks for my model and have tried repeatedly to restore the OS win8 without success even after support technical advice ofHP and several friends with more experience than me (and I got an A + cert for more than a decade)-I have no idea why he keeps fails. I ordered another set of discs and tried another new hard drive. The log shows all the hardware in the way and a sysprep not found error at the end. What Miss me?
Problem solved! After another half-dozen recovery more attempts and lose more money on a new HP certified hard drive with the correct part number, I decided to give up Windows 8 and turn this laptop in a Hackintosh, I now on Mac OS X! Microsoft has gone too far now, only not with the security of windows, instead of trying to make sure they get every penny they can from each PC running windows. His self defeat really. Those who cannot or do not want to pay the cost will simply find an alternative. I'm just tired of the headaches and of constantly having to spend my precious time proving that I have a valid OS license for every computer that I've updated or repair. Forcing people to buy the same item several times is aggravating and false. Sorry, just fan frustration.
I try to use the recovery on a Satellite 1110 CD. I want to just install fresh Windows. The necessary files are supposed to be on the Toshiba recovery CD that accompanies it.
So I did what the brochure says, and booted up the laptop to the top with the correct CD in the drive, while pressing 'C '. The notebook ignored the CD ROM and loaded Windows as usual. I repeated three times, each time that the CD ROM whirs a bit but will not start and Windows loads as usual. I have replaced 'C' for F12, chose the CD ROM drive in the list and repeat the process several times. Yet once it wouldn't boot from the CD-ROM.
I looked at the content of the CD ROM A single MB 447. File of the GHS. The file icon is that generic type "Windows does not know what program this icon is intended to" deals.
Google believes it is a ghost file and must the ghost installed to run it. This bitch never came with Ghost.
Anyone here knows a remedy to this problem?
(NB - I tried clean Windows system restore option, but it just brings back me to September this year. Theres no option that was more early in life for portable computers)
I am in the United Kingdom, and is a UK machine if that makes a difference.
Is this your ODD works properly with the operating system?
I put really know what exactly is happening here, but please make sure that you start with recovery CD number 1/2 2/2. The installation of recovery, you can just start with the first recovery CD. Also try please set CD-ROM as firs boot device in the BIOS.
This Toshiba laptop not recover itself thanks to the built-in tools.
I tried to reset the PC, and restore factory default, however, both saying "there was a problem.
I think I want to clean the hard disk and manually, re - install Windows 8 from a good USB stick, however I do not see the product key of Windows 8 on the underside of the machine. Is it hidden somewhere else?
Also, if I have to re - is install manually, possible to recreate the recovery partition?
Thank you very much
I guess you want to retrieve the computer laptop back to the factory settings.
To do this, you have two options:
(1) use the internal HARD drive recovery procedure:
Details here: [Windows 8 recovery & repair | http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2A03ES0000R01.htm]
(2) you must use the Toshiba Recovery Media creator to create first recovery media (disk or key recovery USB flash Recovery)
Then start the laptop using this support would begin a new installation of operating system and would be to install the image of Toshiba. This image is already activated and needs no series keys.
I have Lenovo G50-20 (model: 20351) and lost recovery disk.
Y at - it possible that I can get the recovery disk of the Lenovo support (ready to pay the price for it) so that I won't lose my licence 8.1 for Windows OS

When you try to restore a new copy of Windows XP and after booting with a Windows startup disk, download to the point where you can select "recovery or install new ones.
When I press F3, it gives a message that the hard disk is not installed and I should check the connections of power supply, etc.. However, I can run XP from hard disk. And I checked through 'System' that the h/d driver works fine?
The laptop is 2006 and the disc does a lot of 'Beating' when even simple are requested - where the need to re - install Windows. (Tried to frag!).
Can anyone suggest something outside the upgrade? Thank you
Did you run a self test on the hard drive? You said that you can run XP from the drive, but it runs well? Looks like to me this drive is defect and the cause of these issues. Here's how you can run a self-test: http://goo.gl/pVHxW
Let me know if there going to fail the test.
Original title: why I can not reformat my upgrded from vista to w7 disk
I can't reformat my vista upgraded to windows 7, as I tried to add another hard drive, which will not take my recovery disks. The message to reboot
You try to add an additional hard drive or you try to replace the current hard drive with a new one?
Recovery/restore disks are specific to OEM (made by the manufacturer that also makes your computer) unless you are lucky enough to actually have on the contrary an OEM copy of the operating system in question (Windows Vista I guess) and it is bootable and will guide you through a real installation of the operating system and not a "restore image." What means what, is supported by the OEM in question for the method - no Microsoft.
Now - you may be able to perform a new installation of Windows 7 using the Windows 7 upgrade media you have - depending on how you got it...?
