Satellite P10, Question about recovery

I want to format my new Satellite P10 with the recovery CD, but when it restarts, it says it will start Windows 98 this mean that when I reinstall to its default value, it will install windows 98? and not windows media center?

Good bye


I noticed exactly the same thing with my Satellite P20. He ended up with XP Pro but, just as it should have been

  • Satellite P10: Question about the limits of upgrade of RAM and HARD drive

    What are the limits to upgrade my laptop Satellite P10? Currently, I use 1 GB of RAM (2 x 512) and I still have the original 60 GB 4200 RPM HARD drive. I'm mainly interested in upgrading my hard drive to at least get a 7200 RPM 100 GB disc. Better would be one of the ones 24 hours server as Hitachi HTE721010G9AT00, I have just turned off my computer. Which one to take and are there limits (BIOS) (keeping in mind that there will be 200 and even the 250 GB drives next year)?

    RAM: should I put two 200pin SO-DIMM 333 or 533 or should not change at all as it works very well and stabil now?


    In my eyes you should follow the guidance of Toshiba line and must use the memory modules that are recommended in the user guide. But if you can also try to test with 400 Mhz or 533 Mhz. I think that each dealer notebook or memory could do that.

    I think the BIOS might be able to handle the hard drive with capacity of 30 GB / 40 GB / 60 GB / 80 GB, Bus Master IDE with ultra DMA 100 synchronous
    In my opinion the BIOS does not recognize the larger HARD drive.

  • Satellite A100 - question about recovery disk

    When I bought my Toshiba laptop, I received a product with her recovery disk.
    At first, I thought it was the recovery of the whole Windows XP (OS which was preinstalled) but on the back cover of the case, he said only "Windows Office One Note"

    So this product for a recovery notes only?

    Yes, it looks like a recovery disk from Toshiba which would format the whole HARD drive and reinstall the operating system preinstalled together.

  • Satellite L350 - Question about recovery disc creation

    Help, please.

    I read in the manual for my new lap top before setting up and feel rather nervous.

    The seller said that he had to open automatically when I start it, and all I had to do to install the printer and my word m/s (for example) program and I would be in place and running.

    But it seems that I should first do some recovery disks.
    How many disks is necessary? DVD no doubt - or D/L.?
    The recovery discs are possible after other programs installed?

    Secondly, he mentioned the manual online. Where can I find it?
    I have a scanner and a Seagate external hard drive, but these can be added later.
    I use the laptop as a desktop replacement for my old Mesh PC of five years.

    Thank you for your help.


    Yes, it is very important to create the recovery disk before you change anything on your HARD drive laptops.
    When you have completed the installation of Vista, you must start the application called recovery Toshiba disc Creator.
    This application will help you create the recovery disk.

    As I m not wrong not you would need a DVD. I recommend using a DVD-R.

    Notes; in some cases, you might get an error burning the recovery DVDs. This may happen because not all drives are fully compatible. So if you get this error please check different DVD from different manufacturers

    Good bye

  • Re: Satellite P200 - question about the recovery part

    I have a Satellite P200 and a recovery disk. I don't want to use this as it clears my disk clean C: and E: which has all my data on it.

    Is there a restore button to factory settings which affects the C: drive and let E: in tact? I thought I read somewhere that there was.


    If you have the Satellite P200, something like this is not possible. Unfortunately, before the recovery procedure starts the disk HARD integer will be deleted (formatted). Before you begin recovery procedure back up all your important data to an external device, or burn it to DVD-R/RW support.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and well thanks. A response as soon as possible would be great, thanks in advance.


    I am sorry to say that it resembles a discarded HARD drive.

    You can boot from a floppy drive and see the HARD drive at all. If you can, then I suggest trying to format the drive in this way and then tries again.

    If this isn't the case, then you should get a new drive.

  • Satellite P10 - beginning of recovery with Windows 98 disc

    Having just bought a new PC to decided to clean the old a because it does not work well and often breaks down. I started to run the cd-rom recovery (startup pc, press and hold C, etc.) and the first screen showed a message on * from Windows 98 *! I quickly abandoned the process, and there is no change to my PC.
    As my old PC (Satellite P10) came with * Windows XP Home * I was surprised by the reference to Windows 98.

    Can someone explain what is happening? I'm afraid to continue with the restoration.

    Hi weematt_1,

    I m not 100%, of course, but as far as I know it of normal that you see from Windows 98 for a short period because the installer of recovery is BACK/WIN98 founded but that doesn t mean Windows 98 will be installed.

    If the recovery disk contains Windows XP will be installed, but Setup of recovery based image on the BACK and if Windows 98 starts.

    You should try it! I'm pretty sure because as far as I know the same thing happened to me on my older Toshiba laptop.

    Restore CD contains recovery image. Recovery image include the operating system, drivers, utilities and software tools extra.

    When you install recovery image you own preinstalled WXP. For cell old models were most two disks: 1/2 and 2/2 so if you the second you will not be able to install the OS completely.

  • Satellite 3000 - X 4: Question about recovery CD

    I was told that the recovery disk for the
    Satellite 3000 - X 4 Cel 933 MHz/128 MB / 15 GB / DVD / 14.1 TFT / XP IT

    DON'T FORMAT THE DRIVE, is that correct? I was struck by a virus and my pc is slow and stop often. Although I ran norton several times, it doesn't seem to help.

    I would like to do a clean install on this laptop. Does anyone has the steps to follow for a person non-techie? and once again the recovery disc formats the drive?

    Thank you.


    You have 2 options:

    1. standard mode: recover the entire hard drive: all data will be lost.
    2 expert mode: retrieve only the partition with windows on it: only data from this partition will be lost.

    If you perform a new installation, please use the expert mode and you'll be able to create two partitions. On the first, you need to install OS and the second that allows you to save all your data.

    Also check the other postings in the forum. You can use the advanced search.

  • Satellite 230cx: Question about HARD drive, memory and CD recovery.

    Can someone tell me if I can get a recovery for a 230cx disk? And what is the max hard drive that I have and RAM.

    Thank you...


    Well, it is a very old unit. I think that it s about 8 or 9 years.
    However, I found the information that this unit has an internal memory of 16 MB and it of possible to upgrade the memory for max 144 MB (16 + 128MB)
    Also, this unit has been delivered with a 1.37 GB HDD part Nr.: P000229560
    I don t think you will be able to use a big HDD like 10 GB. The BIOS couldn't t recognize the HARD drive. Sorry but there is no information on the maximum size of HARD drive.

    The recovery CD, you must order the Toshiba service partner.

  • Question about recovery use DVD on Satellite A50


    My son forgot where he put the recovery DVDs for the Satellite A50 laptop (bought in store for almost 5 years) future, he tried to install Windows XP using another CD.
    Later, we found the recovery DVDs, but we can no longer use it.
    Is it possible to delete the operating system and re-use the original recovery DVD?

    Thank you

    Preinstalled WXP has nothing to do with your try to install OS using recovery media.
    I'm really confused why this is happening, but that s be clear:

    Saved on recovery media recovery image is created for some portable model and cannot be used on another model of laptop. So before installing recovery starts, recovery image check and compare information with the laptop. If the information stored in recovery image correspond to the information stored on laptop recovery installation is possible, otherwise it will stop.

    When the laptop is faulty or repaired service must be portable computer information with the good. If this is not the laptop can be recognized and recovery plant will be halted.

    So if nothing is changed on the laptop my only theory is that there is something wrong with the recovery media.
    You can send us all the information written on this recovery media (numbers)?

  • Satellite P200D-139 - Question about recovery disk

    My father has a Toshiba Satellite P200D-139 and we lost the recovery for laptop disk and the recovery HARD drive image also disappeared.

    So I ordered a new pack of Toshiba and I was just wondering if I had to put a new HARD drive in the laptop (a bigger HARD drive) the recovery pack contains Windows Vista to put it back on the hard drive?

    I once had an old Windows XP on Toshiba Satellite 1900 and packed on that hard drive if I bought a new disc and ran the recovery disk and it put Windows back on so I hope that this pack for this laptop does the same.


    Is that the Toshiba recovery disc can restore the factory settings every time and on each HARD drive. If you replace a new s than what it still possible to restore the factory settings on the same HARD drive, nothing is installed on the HARD drive. HARD drive recovery files are not necessary for the recovery disk because the recovery itself contains these files.

    So replace with a bigger HARD drive and boot from the recovery disc. You come out of the box settings and the computer will be ready to use after this :)

  • Question about recovery for Satellite Pro A120-185

    I had a with the laptop recovery CD. I wonder if he has the operating system also (windows Vista) and I have the right to request a copy of the operating system?
    Is - this CD has everything that was originally on the laptop (all software)?
    And how to restore to factory State with the combination of keys on keyboard to image on the hard drive? This also restores programs and everything too?


    You bought the laptop with pre-installed Vista OS?
    If so, the recovery CD should contains the operating system Vista, all Toshiba drivers, tools and utilities and additional software.

    > Is - this CD has everything that was originally on the laptop (all software)?
    Yes, as I said above the Toshiba on the restore CD image contains everything; Operating system, drivers and programs.

    If you use the recovery for the reinstallation CD, you will set the laptop to factory settings.
    But beware, this procedure will format you whole HARD disk and will delete the existing partitions.

    If you want to install from the recovery CD, try to boot from this CD and follow the guide line. It is very easy.

  • Satellite A500 - 14Q - Question about recovery-DVD


    My HD crashed recently. My laptop was still under warranty, so I send it back and they replaced the hard drive.

    When I came back, I installed Ubuntu and it works very well.

    But I need Windows Vista for computers in some programs (Visual C++, some games,...) that does not work under Wine. Given that I had not made a lot of things, I thought to use the recovery media. Normally, you should be able to do it from the configuration (hold 0 or F8). But it doesn't work (I get a different screen with no options).

    After some research, I realized I could order a recovery dvd. I wonder if this will work because my laptop is already running on ubuntu? And it will reinstall Vista?
    It would be stupid to more worn 30EUR for recovery dvd that does not. If this is the case, I'll just buy Windows 7, but that seems like a waste of money, since I had before my broken HD (free upgrade).

    Thanks in advance.


    Why use Vista on this machine? It must be supported Win7, so before you spend money for Vista old and not so perfect to buy Win7 and you will have great machine with the new operating system that works much better than old Vista.
