I was going to make recovery disks for my vista laptop, it's a Toshiba satelite A300-1MC but i get an error message i don't understand. the message is;
' error could not find file; C:\HDDRecovery\OriSetenu\Setenv.ini-HDDRecovery environment is not valid'
Nieces had two Tosh Sat laptops both failed the verification of the recovery disks.
Found it easier to set the machines up as required, (relevant protection packages and removal of Toshiba Bloatware that came pre installed) then use and imaging program (Acronis) to make and image of the drive.
Acronis is not free but there is plenty of free ones out there to image your drive I particularly like Marcium Reflect.
Since my vista is having problems ther is no point in making disks with that problem so i am looking to make a Vista sp2 disk so i can flatten my laptop and start again, i have my instalation code so just need the OS.
Can i legally upgrade to windows 7 without cost and if not who do i pay? I would need a product key of course unless i can sue the one i have now for vista - can i?
