    Hey mate,

    > ERROR: Copying of Recovery Base files failed!
    Sounds like a faulty or scratched recovery disk maybeÖ

    In my opinion you should try another disk, . e.g. Microsoft Windows disk. If your recovery disk is faulty, the Microsoft disk should work properly. After this you can download and install all drivers and tools from the Toshiba page.

    In worst case itís a hardware malfunction, HDD or something else, but you should test another disk firstly. ;)

    Hi

    In my opinion itís not Recovery disk issue but possibly itís a HDD issue since the error message says HDD1 not found.

    I think itís meaning the partition 1. Maybe you should format the HDD firstly and then you could try to recover the notebook using the Recovery disk.

    Otherwise you would need to check if the HDD is okÖ
    For that you could use a tool called Drive Fitness TestÖ.
