Installed Bidefender on an out-of-the box Satellite L755. When booting have 2 options:
Bitdefender recovery or Windows 7. Any option causes the laptop to get stuck. Wanted to use F8 to access recovery and reset the machine to factory default. Hitting F8 at start-up results in nothing.
Getting same 2 options as above.Through the Windows 7 option tried Last known good configuration.
The machine did something and stuck.Tried my own Win7 64 Ultimate DVD.
The machine did something for a few seconds and got stuck.
I don’t know what have you done exactly but fact is that HDD recovery installation (F8) works with factory settings only.
Generally speaking you should be able to access “Advanced boot options” using F8 at start-up. If “Repair my computer” option will be there is other thing.
If you cannot access recovery image using F8 you must use recovery disc for OS installation. Have you created this disc following Toshiba instructions?
