Nb Toshiba L300 - 138 / did n't give toshiba cd

1 Saudi Arabia Review updated:

Most new Notebooks do not come with setup disks. Generally there is a partition on the Hard Drive which contains the setup files, and allows you do to a recovery/restore. With the Toshiba models, try this if you want to create your own set of disks:
Start - All Programs - Recovery Disc Creator
(there may be an icon for this on your desktop)
the Manual that comes with the Notebook should also give you some information about this process, and is probably supplied as a pdf file, have a look for a Toshiba folder in 'All Programs'.
Good Luck!

    I purchased one of these in Doha 2 days ago after lots of research on the product.

    Toshiba clearly mentions that it is a Notebook without ANY OPERATING SYSTEM - and that is true. Even DOS of any type is not loaded. The HDD comes totally empty for the client to do as he / she may like to do.

    Since there is no bundled operating system or any software with this notebook, Toshiba does not provide any Recovery CD or DVD (How can they if they are not giving any Op system ????).

    The price in Middle East is almost US$100 than in USA. But no option - I wud like to buy where I can walk in in case of a problem.

    To the compliant,

    For additional information of your purchased notebook visit this link
    It will help you out the full details of your notebook, however, it states that the notebook has no bundle OEM Operating System, which means their are no CD's included.

    If your planning to deploy Windows XP in your notebook, just click on this link to download all the needed drivers in your system

    for Windows Vista 32Bit here's the link

    Hope I'll enlightening your mind. Goodluck! Enjoy in your new notebook.

    I purchase a Toshiba Satellite L300 notebook without any recovery cd in it.

    I want to downgrade to XP Pro. However, I do not know how I will do it.
    Please, send me the possible and correct procedure to downgrade from MS Vista to MS XP Pro.
