    Hi everybody,

    first, sorry for my english, I'm a belgian and I speak french.

    Yesterday I bought a toshiba Satellite P300-1CI, when I started, I must installed Vista home.
    I would like to format my disk and reinstall my old Windows XP.

    My question is : How can keep an image disk with Vista? I don't have an installation disk of Vista and don't know my registration key of it.
    How can I have a recovery disk ?

    Can you help me please.

    PS : Sorry for my english

    Hi mate

    User manual is really interesting document and in most cases it answer all you questions ;)

    Anyway, the Toshiba recovery disk should be created before you would format and install on the HDD.
    You have to use the preinstalled Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator application in order to create the Recovery DVD.

    Now to you other question;
    The Vista image which is preinstalled and placed on the Recovery disk (after recovery disk has been created) is activated already and you donít need to insert any keys or activate anything.

    Hi!

    You must use the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator to create the recovery disk.
    The recovery disk contains the factory settings and also all drivers and tools from Toshiba.
    Itís important to do that if you want to get back to Windows Vista.

    The drivers and tools for Windows XP you can find on the Toshiba website:

    Bye
