    Sorry for my english
    I'll try to explain in english how to I solved:

    YOU NEED ORIGINAL PARTITION WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE D: & E:
    OTERWISE IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RESTORE.
    YOU NEED E:\HDDRECOVERY FOLDER WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE
    YOU NEED D:"WINRE" PARTITION WITH ORIGINAL FILE INSIDE.

    0-save all data you need in C: partition
    1-boot from vista dvd (not important which version)
    2-click install to start install process
    3-select expert mode to manage HD
    4-delete C: partition
    5-create a large partition and leave 10G free for later(vista dvd will call it C:)
    6-format this partition
    7-create a small partition about 10G on the remainig space
    8-format this partition too(vista will call it G:)
    9-close vista hdd tool (return in first window)
    10- click "restore boot"(i don't know how it call in english version)
    you need to boot the CMD console
    11- in cmd console go to e:\hddrecovery\oddfiles\tools
    12:type "imagex /apply d:/sources/boot.wim 1 g: " it will create a list of files and folders in G:
    13:go to g:\sources\recovery\tools
    14:type "hddrecogui" (it will open the gui process of toshiba recovery tool)
    15:follow the instructions of toshiba recovery tool
    16- enjoy the original factory settings
    17-now you can delete the ex-partition G: and expand C: partition with some disk manager program.
    18-CREATE THIS DVD-RECOVERY ^_^

    GREATINGS

    Thanks mate for this workaround.
    I didnít test it yet because Iím a owner of the Toshiba recovery disk but I think it should be helpful for other here in the forum.

    Cheers

    To be honest this is really interesting, buddy!!

    Thank you for this extensive posting! I think this could be useful for other users here! But I have already created my Toshiba recovery disk ;)

    Interesting!

    I assume thats for Vista only?

    I think its a different process if you have XP.

    if you have vista business/ultimate version u HAVE the xp dvd-recovery yet.

    this workaround is only for VISTA-home/premium version that has not the XP-dvd possibility to install.
