Satellite L350 - restore original factory settings without DVD - SOLVED
Posted: 16-Jun-2009 18:40
 
Sorry for my english
I'll try to explain in english how to I solved:

YOU NEED ORIGINAL PARTITION WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE D: & E:
OTERWISE IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RESTORE.
YOU NEED E:\HDDRECOVERY FOLDER WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE
YOU NEED D:"WINRE" PARTITION WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE.

0-save all data you need in C: partition
1-boot from vista dvd (not important which version)
2-click install to start install process
3-select expert mode to manage HD
4-delete C: partition
5-create a large partition and leave 10G free for later(vista dvd will call it C:)
6-format this partition
7-create a small partition about 10G on the remainig space
8-format this partition too(vista will call it G:)
9-close vista hdd tool (return in first window)
10- click "restore boot"(i don't know how it call in english version)
you need to boot the CMD console
11- in cmd console go to e:\hddrecovery\oddfiles\tools
12:type "imagex /apply d:/sources/boot.wim 1 g: " it will create a list of files and folders in G:
13:go to g:\sources\recovery\tools
14:type "hddrecogui" (it will open the gui process of toshiba recovery tool)
15:follow the instructions of toshiba recovery tool
16- enjoy the original factory settings
17-now you can delete the ex-partition G: and expand C: partition with some disk manager program.
18-CREATE THIS DVD-RECOVERY _

GREATINGS

Thanks mate for this workaround.
I didn’t test it yet because I’m a owner of the Toshiba recovery disk but I think it should be helpful for other here in the forum.

Cheers

To be honest this is really interesting, buddy!!

Thank you for this extensive posting! I think this could be useful for other users here! But I have already created my Toshiba recovery disk ;)

Interesting!

I assume thats for Vista only?

I think its a different process if you have XP.

if you have vista business/ultimate version u HAVE the xp dvd-recovery yet.

this workaround is only for VISTA-home/premium version that has not the XP-dvd possibility to install.
