If Windows is not bootable, how can files be saved before performing a system recovery?
One way uses a USB thumb drive with a live copy of Linux. Please note that Toshiba does not maintain these links; their targets could be changed or removed at any time. Toshiba does not officially endorse these utilities. Use them at your own risk.
1. Prepare a thumb drive formatted in FAT32. It doesn't need to be large. 256 MB should suffice.
2. Download UNetbootin to create the thumb drive.
3. Download a Puppy Linux .iso file for the operating system.
4. Run Unetbootin-windows-xxx.exe, and point it to the Lupu-xxx.iso file to create a bootable drive.
5. When you power on your computer, hold down the F12 key. That should give you the opportunity to choose the boot drive.
