I am running Vista Home Premium on a Satellite L305D-S5881 series system. I need to reinstall the OS from the Vista disk supplied with the laptop. However, I cannot find the right option to select to reinstall the OS, when I boot using the disk. The only relevant option is Toshiba Complete Restore which will delete all my data on other partitions as well, and I certainly cannot afford to let that happen. I only want to reformat my root partition (C:\) and reinstall Windows on that.
Can someone help me out over here ?

So far as I know, no Toshiba computer has that option.
You might try repairing Windows.

Sounds like a good time to buy an external hard drive to backup all your data, then do a system restore to factory specs.
It can be a pain, but hard drives are so cheap these days, there is no real excuse for not having one just for these types of problems. I have done this many times.
