Have heard that if i get a copy of windows 7 Home Prem i can boot from disc and hit repair.
Does anyone know if this will fix the problem and also have prob of finding someone who can borrow me a disk too.
Windows 7 Recovery Options (even tho you are in XP forum) http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/What-are-the-system-recovery-options-in-Windows-7
Yes it works - Correct the problem ? You didn't say why you were restoring, but hope that it does.
PS: I see so many posts about Toshiba recovery problems, I would not rely on them in the future. Even if you have to shell out some cash, a good disaster recovery APP is well worth it.
