Forgive me if this has already been posted, but I was not able to find it.
Laptop - Satellite L505D-GS6000
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
I want to perform a system restore back to factory defaults. There was no recovery media created when this PC was new. The Toshiba Recovery Media Creator application was installed. Trying to boot to the Repair PC option from the Advanced Boot Options menu just hangs at the white loading progress bar. I have already reviewed the following posts.
[Create Recovery Media]
[System Recovery 0]
[System Recovery F8]
I cannot find anywhere I can download the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator application to reinstall on that computer. Is that application not available for download?
Alternatively how can I get past the hang on the repair boot?

The Toshiba Recovery Media Creator application was installed.
Not clear on that, Jason. Did you mean to say it was not installed? Or didn't it work? (It's shown in the spec above.)
Open Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) and verify that you have the recovery partition. Maybe attach a picture.
I don't know anything about this download. It seems to have had good reviews.
You probably know you can obtain the discs from Toshiba.
PS Good job tracking down Toshiba documents!

I think that may have been spell checker correcting "uninstalled". What I meant was the Recovery Disc Creator was uninstalled.
Yes, the recovery partition is there. That is what makes this so frustrating. I know there files I need are there I just cannot access them.
Yes, I did see in numerous other posts that I can order the recovery media from Toshiba.
I downloaded and installed the application you linked. That is version 188.8.131.52. I had previously found on toshiba.com version 184.108.40.206a which was labeled for Windows Vista. Neither one will launch after installed. I tried running as administrator since UAC is still on. I tried changing the compatibility mode. Nothing helps.

What happens? If there's a message, attach a picture.
I had previously found on toshiba.com version 220.127.116.11a which was labeled for Windows Vista.
Where did you find that one? Can you give me the link?

I do not know how I found this the first time. I was only able to find it again by opening my IE download manager and choosing to open the download webpage on that download.
No errors when trying to launch the application, it just does not open. A small window opens and closes so fast I cannot tell what it is. I am going to try removing the RDC and reinstall it again.

I wonder why Toshiba no longer offers that application for download (about the time Windows 7 appeared)
The only way I know to get it is to restore the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents.
Maybe somebody from Toshiba will drop by and explain that to us.

When I try to order the recovery disk it tells me invalid serial number and model. Mine is a NB300-008 S#XXXXXXXXX i just want to get it to load to out of box state. All it will do is boot up than black screen with blinking curser in upper left hand corner. Please help
[Moderator edit to remove serial number.]

Thanks so much for the link you gave me to NB300-008. One more question i downloaded the bios file put it on a usb and tried booting from it and it tell me missing operation system.
