    While attempting to recover my laptop I appear to have done the opposite and delete the whole hard drive including the so called hidden recovery partition I used the Toshiba maintenance tool thinking the deletion was just a formatting process and windows would then recover in the process.

    I have no recovery media as the manual described what I needed to be in the recovery partition or so I thought. I stopped the process around 3hrs in at 50% hoping to go back and select another option

    What can I try at this stage?

    Iím afraid you cannot do much, especially if recovery procedure was interrupted.
    Now you need recovery disc for recovery image installation. Bad thing is that you didn't create one.

    I recommend you to order new one and you can do this on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

    Hi

    You need the recover disk which was made for Satellite C855 PSxxxx
    The usage of recovery disk would format the whole HDD and would create the partitions againÖ so finally the hidden partitions would appear again on the HDD.

    Hi, I have the same problem, but worse i suppose. After accidentially format all of the HDD (inc. recovery partition) i found the Recovery Discs. However it's not reloading Windows because of the missing partition even i have the Recovery Discs. "Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partiton is missing." error is on the screen. How can i solve this problem?
