    Hello to all of you guys! I have a small problem. I have a Toshiba L10 290 Laptop and i want to format it with windows xp. But i realise that the laptop dvd drive cant read copied cd's from my desktop dvd-r (sony 7240 dvd-r). So the system cant boot from cds. Any solution for that? Its crazy right? I just placed a cleaning cd and it read it without problem!!!!! Help!! Thanks!! :D :D

    No not a chance i burn it with Ultraiso 4x with data verify and nothing happened. I think that i will not format it. The laptop has windows xp sp3 and says "Activate to login" is there any way to bypass that and activate it?

    Reboot, press F8 madly, login in safe mode.

    Then download Toshiba oembios set from here & 911medic's tool from here.

    Use the tool with the oembios set, reboot ~ that it!!!
