Toshiba C75D-B7230 reinstall windows

Novakingwai 2,138 263 May 20, 2016 at 10:59 AM
I have a backup. I have tried booting from USB and from DVD. It will not load the WIndows installer. I know they are the right ones, I used them on another computer no problem.

It's a model C75D-B7230. Only thing I can think of is I have the recovery on a DVD DL. Maybe this computer can't read DL?

Yes, but to be fair the last one was my fault. I was using the wrong USB recovery disc. Have quite a few different ones laying around. This time I'm sure I'm using the right one.

You can't factory restore if the OP deleted the recovery partition.

I do not have secure boot on.
I pressed 0 (zero) and turned teh computer on. It goes to the recovery option, but when I try to go through with it it says something about an error occured, so I deleted the recovery partition. In fact I wiped the entire harddrive using hte Toshiba utiltiy. It won't do anything Frown

Just download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool onto a USB drive and do a clean install.

Toshiba utility is stupid. It doesn't warn you when you want to wipe the hard drive. Maybe you should sue Toshiba for this?

Ok I finally figured it out. I was messing around in the BIOS. I changed the boot legacy options (or something like that) from UEFI to CSM (or whatever they're called) and it read the USB right away.
