    I have upgraded an M400 which came with XP to Vista Business. Launching the Toshiba Recovery Disk utility delivers a message "not HDD partition found". The management console shows a recovery partition - though it probably still has the XP recovery info.

    Anybody got ideas on how to transfer in a Vista recovery image into this partition? Is this available from Toshiba somewhere in the world? I can get my tech support people to chase it if we know it exists....

    Hi,

    maybe you should properly format the drive and remove ALL partitions with an external program (like UBCD -> "Ultimate Boot CD") and then try it again.

    It can be that the XP recovery partition is blocking the new recovery/installation process.

    If I were you I would try this format-thingy.

    Otherwise grab another HDD and try it with this. ;)

    Cheers

    Overall my Vista install is running beautifully so I don't think I will zap it! But your suggestion of getting a separate disk and setting it up fresh is good.

    Still looking for clues on whether there is a Toshiba Vista restore disk out there yet for the M400... (And if so, how to get it)

    cheers
