I have a Toshiba l-305=s6933 laptop, I am told that there is a recovery partition which I can use to reinstall vista?
Can anyone explain how to access this partition.

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Note that this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!


I have never done this myself....those are the instructions I found online.

You can read the same thing starting on page 61 of this Toshiba manual. :huh:
