Portege R100 - Boot from external HDD
I have a Portege R100 and the HDD failed. I installed a new HDD and I have the Toshiba recovery disks. I tried to boot from a generic USB CD-ROM but the laptop did not recognize it.
I have a USB Toshiba FDD which it does recognize and I have a restore disk but I don't know how to go from there. Do I have to buy a Toshiba external CD-ROM and if so, which one?
Any helpful suggestions?
