I've tried looking for it in the add/remove program and its not there. I've
went to my computer and right clicked it and clicked format and a window came
up and said that i couldn't format because "vista" was currently on the C:/
drive and i can't format. I don't have a XP boot cd. I never had one. If i
ever had any problems with my Toshiba Laptop i would restore it. I need
serious help. If anyone can give me a guide i've be pleased.

If you did an upgrade of your XP installation and do not have a XP CD to
reinstall from, you will probably have to buy a new copy of XP.

If this is your only computer you should have never installed Vista Beta 2
on it in other than a dual-boot setup.

Go to the comp.sys.laptop newsgroup, and ask them what the procedure for
restoring the operating system is for Toshiba, if you don't have the restore
CDs.

I have a Gateway, and I looked up the procedure for that a littile while
age.

The procedure for your laptop is probably different.

To restore system software from the hard drive backup copy:

1 Restart the computer, then press F11 when prompted to start the
restore process. The System Recovery program starts. You have
three seconds to press F11 before Windows starts.

2 Click a system restore option. For more information, see
"Restoration options" on page 5.
? Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended)
? Full System Restore (Destructive)
? Full System Restore (with Backup) (Advanced Option)

3 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system
software restoration process.
