    A few days ago my Satellite P10-304 would not boot up, so I used recovery CDs and got the machine working as good as new.
    Yesterday again it would not boot up.
    Something about an ethernet cable unplugged in error message, so I tried recovery CDs again as there was no data to lose.
    It will not work, coming up with an error message "GDISK(E) No such fixed disk --1" then "Error number 11030, Invalid destination drive".

    Can anyone help me to get it re-booted/recovered please?
    I am not fussed about anything special for this old laptop, just a second computer for the kids to do their homework on.

    Hmm…. Sound a little bit like an HDD malfunction…
    Did you check if the HDD was recognized in the BIOS?

    > Something about an Ethernet cable unplugged in error message,
    I assume you get a PXE-E61 boot error on start-up.
    This message appears if the notebook tries to boot from the LAN.

    This could happen if other boot sources like HDD, etc… are not available.

    I am also afraid that there is some problem with HDD. Try to obtain other HDD and test it again. Talk with your friends. Maybe some of them have already used one. It is good enough for testing purposes.

    Can it be that HDD is not recognised by BIOS?
