I was doing the initial installation when we had a power cut (well, the UPS failed the selftest) - the installation did not seem to complete properly, so I tried to repair/continue the installation.
However, all my googling etc. has only led me to the advice: power on, press F8, choose "Repair Computer". Well, I don't have the "Repair Computer" option. Instead I figured I could restore to factory settings and just start over.
If it doesn’t work your only option is Toshiba recovery disk but I doubt you have it if you have done the initial installation because the recovery disk can only be created after successful recovery installation.
Hi, on the advanced boot options menu I have e.g. "Safe mode", "Safe mode with Network", "Debug", "Boot with last working config", "Boot with resolution 640x480".
I actually managed to get the system to boot using "Boot with last working config", and I've just now managed to create a recovery system on USB.
I've got another question about how to change the language, but I'll start a new thread on that.
and I've just now managed to create a recovery system on USB.
How have you done this if Windows isn’t installed?
You can create the Toshiba recovery disk using preinstalled Toshiba recovery media creator. This tool you need to create a recovery medium. On some notebooks you can also create recovery USB stick but therefore you need a USB stick with 8 or 16GB capacity.
I've got another question about how to change the language
You want to change the language of Windows itself?
Well, this is not possible. The language of Windows 7 can only be changed with Ultimate Edition that supports MUI.
I’m a little bit confused… Have you created a recovery medium using Toshiba recovery media creator or not?
As far as I know on Satellite L675 you can’t change between different languages because only the Home version is installed. So the language can’t be changed, you can only use the language of preinstalled Windows 7 version.
I never heard that it’s possible to change the language. What Satellite L675 you have exactly?
The Toshiba image which was preinstalled on this notebook contains 4 languages.
So pjessen is right. But as far as I know after one language has been chosen, you are not able to change this…so I recommend ordering new recovery disk.
