Recovery Procedures

  1. The user selects the preferred operating system the first time the system is powered on and the other operating system is deleted. The user is prompted to make a backup (onto floppy disks) of their chosen operating and the Toshiba Tools and Utilities via a disk creator program. To reload, the user manually installs the operating system from the disks created, followed by the Toshiba drivers and utilities.

  2. The system is supplied with a Windows 95 OEM CD. Use the Windows 95 CD-ROM Setup Boot Disk, as supplied, to boot the system, partition, format and start the reinstallation of the standard Windows 95. The user completes the operating system install and uses the supplied Toshiba Tools and Utilities CD to reinstall the required Toshiba drivers and utilities.

  3. Use the Toshiba Windows 95 Recovery CD Boot Disk and Product Recovery CD, as supplied, to boot the system, partition, format and automatically restores Windows 95 as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools & Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.

  4. Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD 1 and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD. Select either a Complete Recovery (this recreates all the partitions and formats each one, this may reboot the system several times depending on the size of the HDD and the number of partitions) or Standard Recovery (this just formats drive C:). The user then selects their choice of operating system, Windows 98 or 95. If they select Windows 95 they will be prompted to insert CD 2. This will then restore their chosen operating system as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools and Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.

  5. Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD.

This will then restore Windows 98 as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools & Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system.

  6. Insert the Toshiba Product Recovery CD for NT and turn on the system while holding down the C key. This will allow the system to boot from the CD. Select either a Complete Recovery (this recreates all the partitions again and formats each one, this may reboot the system several times depending on the size of the HDD and number of partitions) or Standard Recovery (this just formats drive C:). This will then restore Windows NT4 as shipped from the factory. A Toshiba Tools & Utilities CD is supplied for reinstallation of drivers and utilities without reinstalling the complete operating system. A Microsoft NT4 Service Pack CD is also supplied. Please note, the Satellite 4060 and 4080 preload uses Service Pack 3 while Satellite 4100 preload uses Service Pack 4.
