Re: Help with recover cd (toshiba)

Are you sure you are saving the settings before exiting? If booting from the CD-rom is before the HDD in the BIOS, then it shouldn't be booting into windows from the HDD.

Re: Help with recover cd (toshiba)

worm in the hard drive of your laptop?

use another computer (a PC or another laptop) and get DBAN from link on my sig or here:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/dban/dban-1.0.7_i386.iso?download

burn the ISO image into a blank CD. you can use Nero or ImgBurn. DO NOT COPY the file directly into the CD. pop this CD into your laptop's CD drive and boot from it (just like what you do when you do XP recovery). from there you can wipe your drive clean.

How do I do that on my toshiba?
just do a power ON and see if it boots from CD. if it goes directly to boot Windows in your hard drive shutdown and reboot. enter BIOS settings and change boot sequence. in the boot order the CD drive should come before the hard drive. save and reboot.
