I accidentally installed Windows 8 OVER my original Windows 7 system on my Toshiba Laptop. SATELLITE L755-S5216.
I'm having trouble finding out how to format my entire hard drive. I've backed up my important files, I just am not able to find a way to format my laptop right now.

Complete instructions for Recovering the Internal Storage Drive to its original out-of-box condition start on page 62 of your User's Guide.

If you didn't make the recovery disks you were told to make when you first started your machine, then you need to order them from Toshiba (see below). But, if I were you, I would try the HDD recovery method several times before giving up on it.

I have given you the only solutions I am aware of. I also installed the Win 8 Consumer Preview on one of my computers and everything turned out to be a real mess and the only way out was to do a complete recovery as I suggested to you.
