Hello

any other way?
For example Toshiba recovery disk instead HDD recovery option.

By the way: Why HDD recovery doesn’t work? Do you get an error message or have you deleted some recovery files?

Don’t understand me wrong but without exact error description I doubt that somebody can give you a detailed answer.

my problem began with hard disk was active all the time witch make seeking noise and very very slow
I changed the bios option from AHCI to computability the l655 didn't recognize the hard disk at all
I restored it to AHCI now I got the message bootmgr missing

I don't have windows 7 DVD to repair the boot sector

so should it work holding the ( 0 ) with power in SL655? if so that means I've problems

it is bad luck I didn't get even to work just 1 day with my new laptop :(

Hi paradis_pal_1,

I don't have winsows 7 DVD to repair
You don’t need a Windows 7 DVD, you can use the Toshiba recovery disk that you created or you didn’t create it?

If you don’t have Toshiba recovery disk and no normal Windows 7 DVD you should contact an authorized service provider in your country. The guys can order a Toshiba recovery disk that you can use for restoring the original factory settings. :)

Hi

The recovery procedure which you have found above describes the recovery procedure on Toshiba US notebook models.

If you have Toshiba European notebook model check this:

How to recover a Toshiba notebook with the HDD recovery procedure
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm

If HDD recovery does not work, you will need to order a recovery disk.
For European models check this:
http://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

For US notebook models check this:

As far as I know this is not possible.

If you are in the repair console then you can use some commands but as far as I know there is no command which allows you to install the windows manually!

But check these Microsoft docs:
