What's the BIOS date? - that's the most obvious clue as to which version (but not edition) of WIndows it came installed with.
Is the OS running at all? - if so, please run an MGADiag report, and post it. You may also be able to retireve the Key using Belarc Advisor, or Magical JellyBean (don't post that, though!!)

What is the FULL product ID (NOT the Key!) which you edited from your first post? - it's the same one for everyone with that model and OS, so isn't confidential

I agree with Jumanji about the proper course of action here.

The model shipped with Win7 Home Premium 32 bit.

If you didn't wipe the Recovery partition before reinstall you might still be able to run Toshiba Factory Recovery by rebooting while holding down the 0 key to see if Recovery Starts. User Guide Page 61

If not you can try resetting Recovery partition using the fix given here: Satellite L455D-S5976 no recovery utility - Toshiba Forums

If no Recovery partition and the key you audited wasn't from a Clean Reinstall with COA key, then you'll need to order Toshiba Recovery Disks. Recovery media can be ordered online. Click here to begin the order process. There is no charge for the software itself, for which customers already own licenses, and as of 11/5/11 the shipping and handling charges for delivery of recovery media in the US is $29.95 for DVD media or $39.95 for USB sticks.

@noeldp: when i ran belarc and jelly bean they gave me the same product key as i had before when i wrote the post.
i finally got the iso from the digital river site downloaded for home premium so i am going to fire it up in my wmware player first to see if it is going to work, then try putting it onto the new hard drive i ordered.

i did however get to the mytoshiba application and am making some recovery discs from it, so i have that to try too.

@gregrocker: it doesn't seem to have a recovery partition. i even unhid hidden files and the system files, but did not see one.

The Product Key in use is the OEM_SLP Key rather than the COA_SLP Key - it will only work when used with the manufacturer's Recovery media.
You have a couple of options....

1) reinstall with Retail media, and see if you can persuade MS to part with a replacement Key. (they will sometimes do this - but it seems to be down to which side of the bed the operator got out of!)

3) reinstall using the Recovery Media - you may be able to acquire them from a reputable company other than the OEM itself, such as restoredisks.com

FYI....


Computers that come pre-installed with Windows from large manufacturers usually come with two Product Keys.

OEM SLP: This is the key that came in Windows (from the factory). It works by connecting to a BIOS flag (the SLIC table) found only on computers from that Manufacturer. Once it sees the correct BIOS flag, it self activates.

COA SLP: This is the key seen on the sticker located on the side, bottom or in the battery compartment of your machine. The purpose of this key is to be used in the case the OEM SLP self-activation stops working for whatever reason.

ah ha, that makes sense. so, if i install the new hard drive and launch these recovery disc(x3) that i made from the my toshiba appliation i got to launch, should it pull that OEM SLP, or what....and, @noeldp, was there a 2. in your options or did you just mistype?

The OEM-SLP key is baked into the Recovery media so it doesn't have to be accessed or inserted at all.

THere is a way to back up the SLP activation file so it can be reinstalled to a Clean install but it isn't supported here. You would have to research it yourself.

ok, so i was able to make 3 discs from the recovery media creator from some toshiba bloatware. They are listed as: System Recovery Media(Recovery DVD Disk 1 + Recovery DVD Disk 2) and then an Application Disc(totaling to 3 different discs.

if i understand what i am reading from gregrocker, and the sites i have been looking at, if i just install the new HDD into the laptop, place recovery dvd disk 1 in, boot to cd then put the other dvds in when asked, i should be able to reinstall it if i don't mess with the motherboard?
or can it be that simple?

oh, and on another note, i ran the SIW program i found in another forum thread and under the Software> Licenses tab it listed a:
Resource Type (under this column it lists the programs(im guessing)with keys.
one of the listed is titled: Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion DefaultProduct Key

this wouldn't by chance of a miracle be the COA key would it?
would make me a happy

Yes try running the Recovery Disks.

Default key is the one which gives 30 days until Activation.

Typo - sorry about that!

What SW claimed as a Default Key is in fact the OEM_SLP Key - the Default Key for Windows ends 74XYM-BH4JX-XM76F, and as Gregrocker says, it allows 30 days to play with the system, but cannot be activated legally by any means.

haha, if figured so, but thought i would make sure. so the other key that it listed by home professional and Windows 7 product key would be the non-30day key i'm guessing?

When i tried booting to those recovery disks on my new hard drive, it got to the point of copying files from the first disc, it ejected the disc and displayed: error: 0A-224-0000 i then had the option to hit ok.
a prompt titled, cmd.exe told me it couldn't find a disc in the drive, so i pushed the disc back in, and it shut itself down...i have done this about 3 times. and when i try to boot with the 2nd recovery disc it gives error: F3-F200-0002.

so, i decided to try to use the 'blank' home premium disc i created with the iso from digital river, and it gave me the error error:F3-F200-0002

i'm gonna plug the hdd into my sata adapter to my pc and run disk part on it to format it because when i opened it up in explorer it had these files (see attachment) in a folder named $TOSIMG$
