Hello,

Could You please help me. I wanted to do a full recovery on my Toshiba satelite laptop and now I cant't instal back the operating system.


I've got Vista 32 bit before. Did the recovery using the recovery softwere which I got when buing the laptop.
I picked the "toshiba recovery wizard" and then "erase hard disk and Delete all partitions and overite all sectors on the hard disk" - It took 30 hours and now I dont know what to do. When i try to start it again from those two recovery DVDs I've got but It shows me "invalid partition table" and when I hold and pres "C" after restart I have the same screen that allows me to delete all partitions and etc - that I had before the first recovery.

What Can I do... I wanted to clean the PC and I know that I should propably pick "recover to out of box state"

What now... can I recovery my operating system...

hi there,

use any windows installation cd

format the pc from it

do not let installation of windows continue interrupt it

then use your recovery discs and restore it to factory setting

Thanks
