Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A25-S3072 Notebook ?

I want to restore my a25-3072 laptop back to factory specs.

\015 I have formated the hard drive and installed a copy of windows xp home form a different laptop . When I try to restore with the disk I ordered from toshiba , I get an error message saying wrong machine cannot restore. I call toshiba and they verified that I had the right restore disk for this laptop . They then informed me that I should have someone install the Desktop management interface , everyone I ask about this program has never heard of it.\015

Answers :

Ok first things first I believe you mean "XP tablet edition" instead of "Desktop Management Interface"

  • A Tablet edition just means laptop version of and operating system. Laptops need different operating systems, than desktops, to function correctly.
Second even if you are using a Tablet edition of XP you can't use it from another computer.

  • When ever you use a restore disk specifically designed for another computer you will get the error message you described.
  • \015\012
  • You will need to find the original restore disk for that laptop, or you will need to find a new Tablet version of Windows XP.
Once you install a new version you should stop getting that error message. But it has to be brand new. Please rate me I want to know if I was of any help.
