Not a silly question with me.. :-) I checked the settings and HDD is back in space 1 to boot first... when it restarts, I'm not hitting any keys, I will try 'startup repair' now... I'll let you know...

Okay... finally into 'DiskPart' command... I saw a note that says you should not have more than 1 partition 'active'. Which should be 'active', "Recovery" or "Primary"?

Primary should be active.

After 11 1/2 hours today, and 3 hours yesterday and still not pulling up my windows or desktop... I did the 'Toshiba Recovery Wizard' which set my comp back to "out of box state", welll.. upon restart I now rcv error that "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. insert windows installation disc & restart... etc" Then says: "Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed because a required devise is inaccessible." I do not have an 'installation disc' on the 'repair disc' that I downloaded from web.

Do you (or anyone else) have any insight on this as well?? Thank you again for all your help!

I would Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.

@Writhziden, Yes, I have Windows 7 Home Prem, I have the product key but not a disc (as it came with my computer). Do you know if there is a way to re-load it w/ this info? @Theog, I did not make any recovery disks :-(

You can do a clean install of Windows 7 if you have access to a DVD burner. I would suggest that you speak with Toshiba about getting recovery discs, first, though. If after you speak with them you want to do a clean install, I can help you.
