How Do I Reset My Laptop?

Hello there,

I'd like to restore my computer from A image file but when I do it tells me to create a System Repair Disc
I'd like to get instructions to restore my laptop from Image Disc.
Or get instructions restore without CD/DVD A Toshiba Satellite Pro L450D-12X

Many thanks in advanced,

Hello Adil,

Just to clarify, did you mean that you wanted to do a factory recovery/restore to restore your preinstalled Windows 7 back to factory conditions, or to do a system image recovery with a system image that you created?

Further to Brinks comment and reference. The System Repair disk (CD/DVD) is what you need to boot from not your installed Windows Operating system. Once you boot from this CD you can select "restore an image" and browse to the one you want.
