Solved: Win 7 Re-install from recovery image issue
I have a Toshiba Satellite with a badly damaged windows installation. I want to do a complete re-install but cant start the recovery image from the Windows 7 repair my computer option. I can however access the recovery image from the partition and have copied it to an external USB hard drive. Can anyone tell me how I can start the re-install from the recovery image now on the USB external HD. Can I somehow create some re-install DVDs from this recovery image?

Advice greatly appreciated.

I'm no expert at this but you can make the flash drive bootable. You first have to go into the bios and change the boot order to USB first. Follow the instructions to the letter at the link and then copy your recovery partion to the USB. You also may be able to order recovery disks from Toshiba as well.
