How to access Recovery partition on Satellite A660?
Posted: 29-Nov-2011 20:38
 
Help please

I am trying to access my recovery partition on my Satellite A660-18N and I could not find it.
I ve made a stupid thing I ve instaled a fresh Win7 from a cd from my friend without touching the hddrecovery partition.Now I have the fresh copy instaled but I want to go back to the factory one.

It seams from what I ve read on forums that the win7(being different then the one on recovery partition) that is instaled at the moment can't see the recovery partition any more (something was delleted when I ve instaled the copy from my friend.).

is there something i have to replace to boot into it or is there a way to fix it?

Thanks .

After doing this there is no way to start HDD recovery installation anymore.
Have you created recovery DVDs following advice in User’s manuals document?
If not only way to have “factory settings” again is to order original Toshiba recovery disc. You can order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Sorry. :(

So try this out :-)
You have to boot using this disk! Don’t press 0 but F12
Then a menu with available booting devices should appear on the screen.
Then choose CD/DVD drive and the notebook should start to boot from CD
