Since one of the first things that should be done when you get a computer
with a recovery partition like the Toshiba's is to burn the recovery DVD/CD
the machine should still be relatively new. Therefore it should be under
warranty. Therefore Toshiba should fix the problem (replace the hard drive
with a like unit with full OS installed,) granted you may have to send the
laptop to them. Explore warranty details.
Now if the machine is out of warranty....
