Hello aLnEDaBi, welcome to Seven Forums!



Here are the instructions; be sure to post back with an update as to how it went.

Toshiba Factory Recovery

Be advised: this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

Make your Recovery DIsks first if you can still boot into the OS. Back up your files.

Hey guys, sorry to dig this up. I just found this tip useful, because I intend to re-install Windows 7 on Toshiba T135.

What will happen if I have already erased the recovery partition (my mistake, but Windows 7 still works well)? Will that solution by Bare Foot Kid still work?

I don't want to get stuck in the middle of nowhere with a black screen.

Not if you erased the recovery partition.

You can just download the Windows 7 installation iso from Digital River and use the product key to reinstall Windows 7. You will have to install drivers and programs again.
