I have a Toshiba A40 (specs are online), and I recently went to ``cleanup`` the HD. I inserted the recovery disc, hoping that it would just re-write he OS and delete everythng else. I soon found out I was very wrong. I had formated the drive and here I am asking for assistance. (no I did not back up everything. I wanted it clean because I wanted to sell it)
Once the drive was formated I was under the impresion that it wold start installing the OS again. It does not. I even went a step further. I have XP Home on the toshiba, but also have other versions kicking around. I tried installing them as well with no luck. I have been trying everything. Maybe it is something that I am doing wron, or maybe it is just my laptop is finally pooched.
Any help would be appreciated.
