    If you use original OS that you got with your notebook you can create new recovery DVD using preinstalled Toshiba recovery disc creator software.
    You can also try to reinstall original recovery image using HDD recovery option - http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R01.htm

    If not than you must order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

    The question is what you want to do exactly. You can do this using original Toshiba recovery image or using Microsoft installation disc.

    Toshiba recovery image:
    It contains operating system, all necessary drivers, Toshiba specific tools and utilities ad some additional software. Please note: after recovery image installation Windows must not be activated.

    Microsoft OS:
    After installing OS using original Microsoft disc you must activate preinstalled version. This cannot be done using product key from the sticker at the bottom of your notebook and you must pay the licence.
    Al necessary drivers, tools and utilities must be installed manually one by one and it can be pretty complicated if you donít know how to do this.

    My recommendation: if you donít have Toshiba disc order one and use it for OS installation. It is cheapest and also simplest way to install and configure OS.
