Can't reinstall Windows !

Ok what's wrong with Toshiba ? I'm getting my third default in my laptop (keyboard + touchpad + OS ? ), what else should I expect for ?

 

I get this error when I try to format my HD ==> 20-FFFE-048f


And when I insert my 3rd disk ( 4 in total) , nothing happens and then got this message (twice) ==> ERROR :10-FC12-045D


I'm really getting sick of that toshiba laptop -_-'

 

I have any OS installed so far, so cant work with it.


 

help.

Re: Can't reinstall Windows !

If you have a corrupt recovery disk set, and I assume you can't recover from the hidden recovery partition, then about the only thing you can do is order a set of recovery disks from Toshiba.

Re: Can't reinstall Windows !

I completely agree with you and think that Toshiba should provide system disks with the laptop.  That way if there is any problem (i.e., bad hard drive, corrupt system files, etc.) you can do a clean reinstall.  Toshiba only provides the hidden recovery partition and the ability to create restore disks which both are unreliable.  And if they don't work you are faced with having to pay for something you already own.  The only suggestion I have is maybe you can contact Toshiba directly and see if they wil send you the disks free of charge as your still under warrenty.
