i might be wrong . . it's happened before.
i have an a215-s4767 w/ vista ultimate that needs to be rebuilt. i wanted to burn the recovery image, but only find M$ software and that isn't gonna do it. it will write back what i don't want which is the current system which is fubar. before i hit the magic button, i just want to know i'm set to do this. thanks.

i've been on this too long. let me rephrase the question. yes, i did RTFM. still not helpful.
i have a recovery partition on this machine, but no icon or other way to the "create recovery disk" option. what would be the name of the exe to start a recovery disk backup? i did search for recovery and the only thing that came up was an office recovery tool. not toshiba.
i backed up all my data . . tried clean recovery by pressing and holding '0' from a dead startup. nothing. went straight to windows. tried the M$ repair option 'F8', unsucessful because it wanted disks i apparently don't have and cannot create (?). if i didn't need the OS for some progs i run, i'd blow this off and run my linux distro.
any assistance is appreciated.
