    Will this work on a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5818?  When I get to the Windows Recovery Environment and choose Command Prompt, the prompt is actually X:\sources\recovery\Tools

  • During system restore, the windows installation might appear on the D: drive, if you have a system partition.

    Use "d:" intead of "c:" in the commands displayed higher.

    (the disk letters will be as before once you boot normally on windows, this is just because the repair environment shows you a disk that is normallu hidden).

    If you are not familiar with the command prompt ("DOS" environment, you can auto-compete file names by pressing teh [tab] key).

    Exemple: cd w[tab] -> cd windows\sys[tab] -> cd windows\system[tab] ->cd windows\system32 ...
