View Full Version : [all variants] Can't boot into recovery partition Toshiba NB205

October 19th, 2010, 03:25 AM
hey there yall, I have an issue with my keyboard not being picked up in Ubuntu and I went to go ahead and boot into the factory recovery partition to start from scratch, but after it gives me a ramdisk loading bar, then goes to a black screen with a mouse like the recovery will start, then the computer just restarts. Now, I can boot into Ubuntu (but no keyboard) and boot into XP (as I am now) but I can't get the recovery partition to boot. Any ideas? My current station is out in timbuctu, so I am awaiting the arrival of a flash drive to load a LiveCD onto to use Gparted for any potential solutions.

Did you ever get this sorted out? I wonder if your problem was related to the problem described here:


Hopefully, you created recovery disks when you first started using your machine.
