    I have a Satellite A300-1MC. It will not boot into windows just sits there with the welcome screen. PC diagnostics indicate that the Hard Drive is faulty. I have replaced the MK3252GSX hard drive with a Toshiba MK3276GSX - both are 320Gb.

    When I insert the recovery discs I get the following message when Disc 2 is running "Please insert next recovery medium containing file D:\08008XSP6.SWM.

    Any ideas where I go from here"?

    Hi

    Are you sure that you Recovery disk was created properly?
    Did this recovery disk function properly in the past?

    Did you label the disks correctly?

    It looks like there is a problem with recovery disk.

    No not used the recovery discs before. Solved the problem by connecting the old HDD to another PC and burning the missing file from the old disc to a DVD. Inserted this in the Toshiba and it worked.
