Hi, I recently bought a Toshiba portege m400 in the US and it came without recovery disks. When I tried to make them using the utility provided (as described here: http://www.pringle.net.nz/blog/PermaLink,guid,22d6ae4a-6954-4478-b62c-aab013913f59.aspx ) the application did not start. So, I am left with a computer that hasn't have recovery CDs. Toshiba website is particularly useless.

My question is: can anybody provide me with iso images of the Toshiba Portege m400 recovery cds (US english version)? I would appreciatte it if you could help.

Hi,
Please contact Toshiba to order them. They should sell you replacement media for the M400.

They can't really be shared because, though I haven't seen it confirmed, most suspect that the media is hardware specific. Toshiba (and other companies) likely do this so that you are forced to buy the replacements from them when the originals are destroyed.

However, keeping them hardware specific would complicate the process of selling new recovery disks- so it is also likely that this is a complete rumor and untrue. It would be nice if someone could confirm either way. Perhaps Chris knows for sure?

Any OEM M400 Portege Restore and Recovery disks will work on any M400 perfectly well.

So, if you manage to find a set for sale, rest assured it will work.
