    Could you be a little more specific about what you refer to as "Recovery Media"?

    If this is an OEM recovery system, have you made any changes to the partitions on the Hard Drive?

    If I understand your situation, your system is working normally. But you tried to make recovery media using the Toshiba process and it failed.

    Some systems only give you the opportunity to make Recovery Media once. But not sure why yours is failing. If you want to troubleshoot that process, perhaps you could include the steps Toshiba recommends.

    There are other ways to make a system image, which will not be a .iso file. You can use the Windows 7 Backup and Restore utility or some other type of imaging software like Acronis or Macrium. These would allow you to put in a new hard drive and restore your system to the way it was when the image was taken. And external drives are usually best since they can hold the entire image.

    If your situation is not as I believe, please clarify.

    Since I have some experience with the Windows Backup and Restore utility, let's stick with it. I do not have any experience with an OEM type of install and how it might interact with this utility.

    Open Control Panel and then Backup and Restore. On the upper left, select Create a system image. It will look for backup devices and offer you the DVD burner. Click Next and continue the process and select the partitions you want to include in the image. An image is normally around 55% of the total amount of data on the system (or the partitions you choose to include in the image), so it will take that many DVDs to hold it all.

    The .iso maker utility can not be used for what you want, as I understand it.

    If you just want to back up your personal files, use the File backup instead of the image. It will also want to make an image, but you can choose not to do that.

    To recover a system image, you will need something to boot you into the Windows Recovery Environment. An F8 key might do that, or booting to a Windows Recovery CD or Install DVD will also work.

    Nice point you have suggested, this is why I chose to called Toshiba But they told me they dint have it in stock.
    But I come to found out in Toshiba Forum they do have it. So I bought a copy and will take 7 to 10 days.
    So, It will be wise in my part to use external hard driver, I have one but if am not mistaken is 500MB. W/ Back up and restore will be Included Firefox?
    This Would be My 2nd Step, Once I have complete "Back-up & Re-store"
    Thank you for your Tip here :)

    Thank you SO much for taking your time and helping me out, I come to like every detail you have cover here. and not only that. you give me a bonus tip. Am very much grateful from this point.
