i'm trying to restore my laptop (Satellite C660) using the restore disc i created when i got the computer. i put the disc in and chose to boot from the DVD and it seemed to start to working, now i have a black screen with a mouse pointer.
Usually at first all data will be copied from DVD to the HDD and after first restart recovery image installation will start. I don’t know exactly how long the copying process will take but I think maybe 30 minutes. Recovery image installation maybe an hour.
Simply restart your notebook and see what happen when you do this.

Sorry but you must explain what happen exactly.
Start your notebook and press F12 to enter boot menu. When the boot menu is shown on the screen put recovery DVD into optical disc drive, choose CD/DVD drive and press ENTER button.
