Vista recovery disk does not work

my recovery for a6057c disk will not work after that I used the NeoSmart
recovery disk.

After logon to Vista I see that empty office, I can access the task
Manager by CTRL - ALT_DEL.manager.

Windows and all my files are on drive D and my C is the drive has nothing on this subject now. I'd do it
I just want to make a disaster Recovery and
all over again with new factory. Does anyone have any ideas?

I now remove the prtition C on my drive.

Vista still labels the d drive, I have no C?

I found the answer on the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Item number: 947288 primary partition drive letter designation is lost when you use WinRE to repair a GPT in Windows volume

The article is also for Vista.

Article ID: 223188 How to restore the drive letter of the system / boot in Windows

Would do the same thing.

I took the article to use regedit to swap my C & D return records.

Now windows Vista starts OK. (All I had before was just an empty office).

I also received my HP Factory disaster recovery disks it looks they will work if I need.

    Hello

    I have a L350-170 running Windows Vista home, I recently buy a Toshiba restore CD and now that it's happened, it does not work.

    I put in the CD and boot from the CD drive, I can hear work and the display shows "Windows loading files" and a bar appears at the bottom of the screen, after that, the screen turns white and all I'm left with is a pointer of the mouse and a black screen.

    Thank you
    Jackie

    Hello

    Have you tested if the laptop would start using another bootable Linux Live CD, WinPE or Win XP disc?
    Please check that would help determine if the problem is related to the computer laptop or recovery disk.

    Please also check if the HARD drive is ok. For this test, you can use a test called Drive Fitness Test free HARD drive tool. Google for it.

    However, it could also be a defective recovery disc and in this case, you should get in touch with the guys where you ordered this drive may be you need a replacement.

  • Satellite A30 - 203 - recovery disk does not work

    Hi all

    I have an old Satellite A30-203 and have a problem. I tried to format my laptop but the product recovery cd does not seem to work in deletion the data on my disk, its becomes blocked during loading files of ntfs? Now I am not able to retrieve a windows session would I need a new product recovery cd and would be able to get it?

    Thank you

    Hi dimation,

    It is difficult to say what is the reason of this but made is either it s a laptop problem itself or the recovery disc (e.g. scratches) causes this problem.

    In my opinion the best way to check this using a Microsoft Windows disk. If the installation completed successfully, you need a new recovery disk. As a result, you can ask a service provider authorized in your country! :)

    On this virtual path, it is not easy to offer the exact diagnosis, but of course, there must be a problem with the HARD drive. Can you get a second one for test purposes and exchange it. Just to be sure if the HDD is troublemaker.

    But there is something else:

    Hi, Nick:

    Unfortunately, I don't have any experience in troubleshooting these special software installations.

    We should expect to download and install.

    If they are not, I have no tricks up my sleeve for you to try.

    I recommend starting a new thread describing your questions with this software and hope that someone else in the support forum can help you with these items.

  • Satellite P10-304: 2nd recovery disk does not work

    I'm selling my laptop.

    Went to use recovery of original product CD provided along with the PC.

    1 disc worked OK - unfortunately 2nd disc (undamaged) stops at about 60 percent and gives the following message;

    Help, please!?!

    I have a buyer waiting and everything seems to be Dutch!

    Hello

    It's not easy to say what's wrong with the 2nd recovery disk.
    I would recommend formatting the HARD drive completely and try again to recover the operating system. If it doesn't work, well try to contact Toshiba. Here, you can order the recovery CD. Maybe the problem of recovery will be solved as a gesture of goodwill.
    Nevertheless, the recovery cd is not expensive.

    Would it be possible that the CD/DVD drive is unable to read the first disc correctly?

    I don't know what's wrong here, but you have some a lot of m options here:
    To recover the laptop, you must use the Toshiba recovery disks or HARD drive recovery
    You can use the HARD drive recovery process?
    Turn on the device, press F8, choose fix my computer-> drive HARD recovery.

    > NB. If I restart the laptop start date and shows BOOTMGR is missing Ctrl Alt Del to restart...

    Hmm... for me, it seems that the laptop does not start from the disc (DVD), but it attempts to boot from the HARD drive...

    In any case, have you tried to boot from another disk; for example, Win XP, Linux Live CD?
    To do this, and check if it is possible... If Yes, format the HARD drive and try to boot from the recovery again disc!

    PS: Have you tried a HARD drive recovery option?
    Turn on the unit, press F8 and choose fix my computer
    After that, select Toshiba HDD recovery option if possible.

  • Recovery disk does not work for Satellite A100-197

    I'm working on an A100-197, which would not boot into normal Windows, but was able to start in safe mode.
    I used MSConfig to disable all startup and other services. Not good.
    I used the system restore. Not good.
    I have scanned for viruses, rootkits, etc. None found. Not good.
    I copied data to another hard drive in SafeMode with network and inserted the recovery DVDs.
    Through unpacking and got message saying to remove DVD - did this and system seems to freeze.
    Click the exit button and it restarts, but Windows froze (the movement stopped moving blobs). Tried safe mode
    but got a message saying that the installation of the system has not finished.
    Tried the recovery again, but this time I left the unpacking screen 100% of the overnight to see if
    He has nothing. There can be no. Click on exit and got the same as above.
    HDD formatted in partition magic and I tried again. Not good.
    Created 5 GB FAT32 partition and DVD files copied to the FAT32 partition. Tried to run the decompression program
    back. He refused to run in DOS mode.
    I think that connects the hard drive on another machine and RecoUnpack.exe a work PC running to
    unzip the files on the laptop HARD drive image, but this is crazy - the recovery disk is supposed to retrieve the
    System. What else can I try?

    I would say that you have some serious hardware malfunction. Have you ever tried to check the RAM and the processor?
    In your case, I would try to run the UBCD4Win (www.ubcd4win.com) and superPI allows to see if the RAM is faulty.

    It could also be another component such as the motherboard or something on the motherboard (graphics, sound, some capacitors)

    It s just a suggestion, but you could really give my hint a chance. ;)
    I would also try another HARD drive in this machine, maybe the controller from your old HARD drive disappeared...

    Welcome and appreciate all comments

  • For Satellite L450 recovery disk does not work

    My laptop's daughter was so slow, that we decided to take it back to factory settings. There is no disk recovery with the laptop because it has the repair work however when we did the computer is no longer started upward and when we started it in safe mode, the repair option was gone!

    I've then went to Toshiba.eu and bought the recovery disc, seem to work, load files etc and then says loading windows, but the screen just goes black.

    I can't find a phone number or contact point on the invoice and if I will have to consider in a shop to repair I don t want to have paid for both disks that do not work!

    I do something wrong or can any one help?

    Thank you

    New laptops are available with preinstalled operating system and without recovery disk but in user s manual is clearly described that you can create this preinstalled software recovery disk Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.

    I m wondering really you didn't mark this option.

    In any case, try to reuse this disc to see if the problem occurs again and again. If you will not be able to install the original recovery image I recommend you contact the nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

  • Qosmio G30 - 161 - recovery disk does not work

    Hello world

    I need help to understand what happened with my laptop G30-161

    The last time I tried to reinstall the product recovery things was wrong.
    The time where computer supposed to install windows then a blue display screen and stops the process and I get a black screen where there are three choices: start windows normally, or with the command prompt or networking safe mode.
    When I tried safe mode: I get a message that windows is not yet installed!

    When choose ok then the windows install see the screed for a few seconds and then the blue screen appears and disappears a few seconds and the windows on the screen appears as if the system will be installed, and after a few seconds, I get the same - back screen with the choice of the tree again.

    I tried several times to use the product recovery disc and enter in the same circle.

    great wishes to you all

    Hello

    > I have tried several times to use the product recovery disc and I enter the same circle.
    Are you sure you have booted from the recovery disk?
    This seems strange to me that you get the back same screen (start windows normally, or with the command prompt or networking safe mode) when you start drive recovery.
    These three options are displayed only if the laptop would be started from HARD drive.
    So please try to boot from the CD again.
    Insert the CD, turn on the unit, press F12, choose ODD as a source of start-up and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If this is not possible, then I would recommend the HARD drive.
    I recommend Drive Fitness Test. This software freeware s (google).

    Perhaps something went wrong with the HARD drive.
