I was wondering if anyone knows how to do a full system restore on a Toshiba Equium L20-197 running Windows XP Home Edition SP3. It's from 2005 as far as I remember. It's a second laptop I have and I want to do a fresh install so it's as if it's 'out of the box' as I want my family to be able to use it when I take my new laptop to work etc.
No recovery disk came with it if I remember correctly, I've also tried the method listed here but it didn't work. The laptop beeped but then it loaded Windows as normal.
I've tried Toshiba support but as it's been discontinued for so long they don't provide it in Europe any longer. I've seen discs on eBay and other websites claiming to have a download or the recovery disc but I'm not too eager to try those as I don't know how trustworthy they'd be.
Is there another way to do a system restore by clicking buttons on start up or does anyone know where I could download a good .iso file for recovery?
ps I know recovery wipes everything etc. It's a second laptop that I don't use very often but I want a fresh install with everything wiped.
Any help will be much appreciated!
