Toshiba HDD system recovery failure on Satellite L300D
I recently bought a new Satellite L300D and then promptly proceeded to get it infected with a virus.
I didn't have anything on the computer yet that I couldn't afford to lose, so rather than try and fix it I decided to recover the system to factory state.
I started the HDD recovery wizard and I think I interrupted it at the beginning of the process (because I needed to move the laptop and wouldn't be able to leave it plugged in to finish).
When I tried to start the process again I get an error shortly after beginning. The wizard starts by preparing partitions, and then gives me an error:
An error has occured.
Please press OK to turn off the computer.
