Windows 7: Trying to restore winRE.wim

Trying to restore winRE.wim

During attempt to restore Win7Home x32,accidentally we used downloaded MS DVD to install the Windows instead of the original Toshiba 4DVDs.A few months prior we made "*system winRE 1.46GB" partition visible, forgot about it and the content of the partition was modified by the MS DVD.Asking Toshiba support, they didn't even bother to answer.We have old VHD backup which contains some xxx.Wim and other system files.If we knew the content of the original partition,the files it contains mayby we could copy files from the VHD.So I wonder if there is someone who has the same machine and could check the winRE partition.It would be greatly appreciated.Allso any kind of advice how to bring the old out of box setup back.Thank you all.
Toshiba Satellite A660-056;Supplier Part Number:PSAW3C-056017<ES5.0>It is Canadian product.
