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.

    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! :)

    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.

  • How can I restore Vista after replacing hard drive?

    Hi I have a PC laptop toshiba stellite with basic windows vista preinstalled, I suffered a hard drive failure and I had to install a new hard drive, I did save the procedure hard disk original and recorded on the disc but the disc will not work on the new hard drive, I have still the product key for the original operating system can I how can restore the operating system to factory condition

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.


    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, Acer, recovery disk/s etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    MS advice on the conduct of clean install.

    A tutorial on the use of a clean install

    Super Guide Windows Vista Installation

    After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.

    Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.

  • Recovery disks do not work with the new hard drive?

    Hello, everyone.

    I have a laptop HP (pavilion dv7-1245dx) and the hard drive is dead. I had never gotten to burn my recovery disks, so I ordered new ones from HP. When I installed the new hard drive and popped in the disk to reinstall the operating system, it gave me the error message:

    "This PC is not supported by the system recovery discs. You can continue to recover this system with these discs. »

    Error code: 0100-30 FC-3602-3603

    The original hard drive was a Hitachi, 320 GB SATA

    The new hard drive is a WD 500 GB SATA

    Any assistance anyone can give would be great. :]

    Thank you for your time,


    EDIT: Trying to recover a Vista operating system

    For anyone who has the same problem, I found a solution. I cloned the original hard drive using the Clonezilla fallback option. After using Clonezilla to image on the new hard disk, the partition which held that most of the data of the laptop is not mountable, however the partition containing the restore partition was a perfect copy. I turned on the computer, hit escape to access the menu (for a list of options such as boot order, etc, which included an option for recovery), and then choose recovery option. While the recovery discs, I received from HP refused to work with the new hard drive, the Vista restored cloned recovery partition without flaw.

  • How can I download on the external hard drive?

    I'm out of memory on my computer if I want to download photoshop elements 11 on an external hard drive (160 GB hope enough), but the application loader does not have the possibility of storage LOCATION of the program and it stops just as he tries to download on my complete computer that is full and gives not enough memory error.

    also, this computer doesn't have a dvd player, so I need to download the program on the internet not the cd tht I bought in case it makes a difference.

  • can I use my main external hard drive as my hard drive

    can I use my external hard drive as my main hard drive as my internal is full and how to do it thanks

    Hi darrenmchenry,

    You cannot use the external drive as primary drive as the operating system files will be present on the internal drive.

    If the internal drive is full you can always use the external drive to install programs on the computer by pointing the disk as the location when you install the program and make sure that you do not disconnect the external hard drive if you have installed the programs on it.

  • Satellite L670 - 1 DG-can I use a 7200 RPM HARD drive?

    Hi all

    I have a portable Satellite L670 - 1 DG (out of warranty) and I would change the HARD 5400 RPM to 7200 RPM drive.
    It is technically possible on this machine? Is is necessary to use a Toshiba HDD (or open)?

    Thanks for your replies.

    Of course, you can use and must not be Toshiba HDD.
    The only thing that can happen is that this HARD drive fastest heat producing a bit more where the HARD drive is placed can so be a little warmer than usual.

    All that s.

  • Satellite L300 - how to reinstall Windows Vista on the replacement HARD drive


    My HARD drive has stopped working on my PSLB9E. He started making whirring noises and wouldn't start. all tests show it does not. Now I guess I need a replacement for HARD drive and watched a TOSH MK2565GSX or other similar. Problem is I can't find my Windows key anywhere.

    It is can get the key to Toshiba/Microsoft giving them all my contact information or do I have to buty a new HARD drive and install a copy newly purchased Windows on? If Yes, then I'll put W7 on I guess.

    Thanks in advance for any help I receive!


    > Problem is that I can't find my Windows key anywhere.
    The preinstalled Windows operating system and the image that is placed on the Toshiba recovery disc were already activated and therefore the serial key is not necessary.
    If you don t have the recovery disc, so you can buy this drive here:

    It s not expensive; 30 euros I guess.

  • Replace drive HARD w / expansion, made HP Recovery, but only a third of the new HARD drive got in the format

    Last week, I got a (installed at the factory of 1.5 TB) HARD disk failure on my HPE Pavilion. I bought a new 3 TB drive, installed, did a back HP recovery to factory settings (Win 7 using disks that I had made when the system was again 4.5 years ago) and returns to a good operating system. While everything seems OK, when I check computer it tells me there are 2 partitions on the new disk, C: being 734GB and being 11.5 GB D:.

    What should I do to format this drive to give me 2/3 of the space that I'm missing?

    The PC is a HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180 t, product #BN515AV #ABA under Win 7 Pro 64. 1.5 TB SATA HDD that failed was the drive installed original HP, where the recovery DVDs were made in 2010.

    The new drive is a Seagate STBD3000100 3TO SATA HARD drive which records only to the 801 GB format recovery.

    Thanks for responding.

    ..... Further research revealed that indeed, I maybe don't have to install a drive greater than 2.2 to.

    Bad luck. Guess I'll just go buy a new 2 TB drive.

    ... Final note: went down to BestBuy (again) and bought and installed a WD 2 TB (model WDBH2D00020HNC-NSPS) drive. That formatted at full capacity with HP Restore, and am now reinstalling all bloody software that a computer builds up more than 4.5 years.

  • Windows 8 - recovery disks do not work with the new hard drive

    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.

  • H8 - 1420t envy: Hp Envy - can't Access BIOS Can or Start Menu after replacing HARD drive


    One of my friends has problems with their computer and gave it to the difficulty. First thing I did was try to start it up and it didn't not even start. He tried the auto repair and failed. Then attempted to fix startup problems via the Win8 splash screen and doesn't have too much that. So, I tried a refresh and even that failed. I took out the hard drive, connected on my PC at home and save all the data I could find. I had problems with some data and often he would crash my windows explore (as my friend told me that he did while they were using the PC), so I've determined the drive HARD shot.

    Got a new HARD drive and put it in. At caught my drive of Windows 8 and slapped in. When I went to start the PC, I tried to hit all the keys BIOS I could think: Esc, f2, f8, f10 and f12, del even. Nothing has worked. He's just sitting at the HP logo and then after about 20 seconds, he went to a black screen that says something along the lines of "not detected no boot disk".

    I can't boot into the BIOS. If I plug the old drive hard when I get to the blue screen of Windows 8 start with parameters such as the "Refresh" and "reset the PC. If I try to access the CD/DVD drive under the 'Remote access' button, I get a black screen with a cursor. It just freezes there. If I try to access the settings of UEFI, it freezes in the blue menu with functions.

    I don't really know what to do here. I'd appreciate any help! Never had a problem this stubborn before.

    Wanted to just go back and say I have solved my problem.

    The computer didn't like the keyboard I used! I caught a pretty generic keyboard that was laying around and plugged him that. Hit Esc at startup led me to the boot menu.

  • Can I use my old external hard drive after replacing SSDS?

    Yes, your friend is good, just buy a USB box for this and then you, it's like any other external hard drive. You can get these 10 pounds and more, but you get what you pay for.

  • After the upgrade to El Capitan I can't write on the external hard drive to NTFS format more

    I have an external hard drive formatted in NTFS, I used some Mavericks and could read and write on it without problem, after I installed El Capitan today I can't do more, not this external hard drive is read-only. The problem is that it is full of my data and I can't just format as journaled. What I can do and why it worked fine before?

    You need to upgrade or replace the software you used to write on NTFS volumes and should put a copy of your data to a second drive in case one you have fails for any reason unrelated.


  • 1900-303: can I use 80 GB internal HARD drive?

    My s manual says I can install 10, 20 and 30 GB HARD drive! I have the latter. Can I install the 80 GB with no problems?


    I found the same info. If you want to be sure that pick up some info from the HARD drive supplier or service partner. They are responsible for the hardware upgrade of the laptop. As far as I know, they are also able to manipulate the BIOS settings and large capacity that HARD drive is recognized correctly.
