    I don't know how you have removed OS from partition C and what have you done exactly and I’m a little bit sceptic this will work but you can try it anyway.

    Do it as described in follow document - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R02.htm

    No. Your dad has “destroyed” this option with his action. Mistake was that he didn’t created recovery DVD at first. This is clearly described in user’s manuals.

    After own OS installation HDD recovery option cannot be used anymoe and HDD recovery image is “useless”.
    What you want to do now exactly?
    Do you want to have “factory settings” again?
    You can also install own OS using Microsoft installation disc. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities are available on Toshiba download page.

    Hi

    If you want to set the notebook back to factory settings, then you will need to Toshiba Recovery disk… you can use ONLY the recovery disk which was created for this notebook model… you cannot use any other recovery disks due to different software and drivers…

    If you don’t have such disk, then you could order this here:
