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.
& made the Startup Repair CD.

Did you make the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

I personally would keep partition 3, but you can delete as you made the the Recovery disks.
IF you at sometime need to use the disks, partition 3 will be remade.

partition 1 is the boot partition normally called "system reserved". Why it's 1500MB I don't know ... normally is 100MB. Maybe Toshiba install made it type=27 but that's not the problem. Make it visible and tell us what's on and how much space is used/free. it's strange but doesn't give you any errors/problems.

When bootmgr has been loaded it loads windows from partition 2. Check in windows elevated command prompt
BCDEDIT or BCDEDIT /enum all
Is right partition listed at device and osdevice lines?

partition 3 isn't involved in bootprocess.

What is the exact problem and error message?
