Toshiba recovery disks usually contain a "Ghost" image of the hard drive - so the drivers for the OS are preloaded that way. Unfortunately, this results in a complete restore of the system and wipes out any existing data.
What you'll have to do is locate the Vista drivers for your SATA hard drive (a part of the motherboard/chipset drivers) and load them using the "Load Drivers" button.
Let us know the exact make and model of your Toshiba system and we'll see what we can find from the specifications for your system.
Once Vista is installed, I'd suggest making a Complete PC Backup - either using the in-built Vista tools, or a 3rd party tool. That way, should the system crash again, you can restore the system backup (commonly called an image) and be back up and running quickly.
