    Toshiba Satellite L500 Recovery

    I have this laptop with 3 Partitions

    The main partition got corrupted and apparently wiped so all windows folders have been deleted and a low level format carried out

    I still have the recovery sector

    Just wondering how to reinstall it back onto the main partition

    I tried F8 and it took me to a screen to choose language but after that it said "You must log in to access system recovery options"

    I guess user data has been wiped from the main partition ?

    Are there any other keys to press on startup to access the Recovery partition ?

    Thanks

    holding ZERO doesnt work on startup to access Recovery partition

    What I have done is install a copy of Wins 7 Prem from an iso from digitalriver

    Wouldnt recognize the key on the laptop sticker though

    Seems to work ok, but am concerned about activation - have had no warnings about so many days left.....

    The recovery sector is still on the HDD from previous instalation but I can't access it on startup
