I'm repairing a laptop for a friend. their laptop is a Toshiba that they purchased from BestBuy.
Pressing F6 (i think it was) during boot would open up to a pre-boot diagnostic menu that runs out of an X:/ drive.
A myrid of small programs are available at this screen including a DOS prompt.
I used this to run a chkdsk on C drive as you can not do that while booted.
This X:/ partition is a Pre-BIOS enviroment and is built into the computer.
