    Hi

    The Recovery disk was not provided with the notebook because there was a tool called Toshiba Recovery disk Creator which allows you to create a recovery disk!
    Please check if you can create a recovery disk using this tool!

    If this is not possible, then you can check if the HDD recovery is available.
    For more details check this HOW TO:
    [How to recover a Toshiba notebook with the HDD recovery procedure?|http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=58]

    As last option you can order a recovery disk from here:

    I just hope you didn’t deleted HDDRecovery folder on second partition or installed own OS version after you got your notebook. In both cases you will not be able to start HDD recovery installation.

    If possible, create recovery DVD using preinstalled “Toshiba recovery disc creator”.
