Toshiba Satellite A505 - Unable to access factory reset menu


I'm unable to access the factory reset menu at startup (I've already change the boot sequence)?


Unlike other Toshibas, you must hold down the ESC key and power up your laptop, to get to the factory default recovery software. If your hard drive has been damaged, you'll need recovery disks.

Thanks to Lah Tera for this tip.
