I'm happy explain a little better.

Let me start with a picture from one of my computgers with UEIF my computer.

Notice the word (System) in the pictures. That indicates where the needed things to boot are located.

Your (System) is located on your (Recovery Partition) and no where else. Without the Recovery Partition you will not be able to boot your computer.

My understanding is your Recovery Partition should be located on the end of your drive and the (System) should be on a small partition on the front of the drive marked or be included in your
"C" partition.

Please read this tutorial by "whs".
I believe it will solve part of your problem.

Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

Here is a picture from my other system. Notice where (System) is located.

Once done I recommend using Macrium Reflect to make complete backups and if your desire a Clone of the
drive "0" Zero.

Hi Jack,

Thank you for the Link and images. I looked them over and followed your instructions.

Here's what it shows now, doesn't look different to me tho. I see what U mean about showing "System" first tho.
1st image: is from Disk Management. 2nd image: is from Partition Mgr.

I did try to run the * Toshiba Recovery Media Creator * but I got that same error message.
I must be missing something....

Goodmorning,

After Reboot today, Here's what the DISK mgr shows, LQQK's right, but Still can't use
Toshiba Recovery Media Creator.


Note: years ago b4 I bought my laptop, I built my WinXP-x32 system from scratch. I find it was easier with Disks in-hand to install system including the service packs 1 and 2. Use to play around with system so much was every few months restoring system

Goodevening,

Layback Bear, could you take a look at my last 2 or 3 posts? I think I have that Recovery back where it belongs, but still can't run the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator, or are you saying I can extract it with the Macrium Reflect to create a Recovery USB ?

Hello,

Well my problem isn't solved yet, not sure where to go from last post; so I ended up ordering a recovery disc from Toshiba and with shipping it's only $29.95 and should have in 7-10 business days.
