Portege R600 Vista Recovery disk
Posted: 04-May-2009 22:53
 
Hi everyone,

Is some how possible to retrive vista recovery disk from toshiba?

I have xp recovery disk that comes with my toshiba r600, but is there a way to get vista recovery disk from toshiba? download? or something?
I did not create recovery disk with vista...so is it lost? I dont really need vista OS but just in case, is it possible to retrive it?

Thanks.

Jaba

Hi

What OS was preinstalled on your Portege R600?
Was it Vista?

If yes then there should be a option which allows you to create a recovery disk.
You could use the preinstalled tool called Toshiba recovery disk creator which is able to create the Recovery disk.

But if you have already formatted the HDD then you will be not able to create such recovery disk :(

In such case you should check this page:

Thk, for answer.

Well yes, it was vista installed on toshiba when I buy it, but I formated whole hdd, and reinstal win 2008 server(I`m not vista user :) ), and I did not create recover vista disk,
any way i have xp recovery disk on dvd that cames with toshiba (also I`m not xp user)., but some how right now i cant do some things from other installed OS,
like BIOS Upgrade and other things without preinstalled OS that came with my toshiba...

So that link you provide did I need to pay to get vista again? or i can dowlnoad it some how for free(Vista cames with toshiba anyway...)?

Thanks for answer man.

:)

You will have to pay for this disk… someone reported something about 30Euros….
And no, you cannot download the image…
