No, you won't.

However, if you use Greg's tutorial to successfully install Windows 7 Home Premium there's nothing to stop you going back to Toshiba support and downloading anything you need, such as Toshiba's keyboard drivers, which should give you the Fn option you want.

You have already installed Windows, which means the recovery partition will have been wiped.

Please use the tutorial that Greg gave you or order a Toshiba recovery disc.

I don't know how much plainer we can be.

If you continually choose to ignore advice you are being given you'll finish up with no help - trust me.

Even if the Toshiba recovery worked, and you then used your HP disk, you will then overwrite your Toshiba recovery installation.

I don't think the Toshiba recovery will work because you overwrote it when you used the Ultimate disc.

You can have Toshiba recovery if you order the disks and pay for them from Toshiba.

You can have a fresh install without Toshiba stuff by using the burned ISO--assuming you have your Home Premium Product Key.

You can't have both. Take your pick.

I repeat, once you have installed Windows, you should be able to get any drivers you need either via Windows Updates or Toshiba support.
