  1. You could try booting to the recovery partition. On boot (as soon as you press the power button) repeatedly press one of these buttons: F1, F2, F10, F12, ESC or DEL. One of them will get you into the BIOS, from there you can select the recovery partition. Sorry I can't tell you which button to press, but I cant remember the right one off the top of my head!
  2. It is F2 to get in bios but where is recovery partition selection in bios?.
  3. What selections do you have under the boot options?

    There probably is not a way to boot into the recovery partition then. You could contact Toshiba to order a recovery disc, unless of course a recovery disc came with your laptop. When you get a recovery CD go into the BIOS and boot to the DVD drive. Next, follow the prompts to reinstall Windows 8.
  6. Okay. So I've got the same problem but my boot options come up as
    HDD/SDD
    ODD
    LAN
    Am going to be able to do this without a disk or am I going to have to get one of those?
