    8.1 6.3.9600


    Well run recovery Media creator from Toshiba, and created the 3 DVD's required (Successful)
    for the recovery Disks. But will not create on another Toshiba (As That Toshiba was able to refresh).
    Might just have to wait until the win 8.1 is installed to create recovery Media, that is how it worked on mine.
    or could be a whole other error in the program of Toshiba recovery creator.
    It happened to my 1st Toshiba, the one that just now created the disks go figure.

    At this point all is well. Created another user on the second laptop (admin) and created a clean retore point on Both laptops.

    and Thank you for your responses

    On a Toshiba if you shut down your computer completely then hold "0" (zero), Then Turn on the PC while holding "0" you will boot into the Toshiba recovery environment. From there can can restore from the factory image.

    On some Toshiba laptops you actually have to hold shift then click restart while holding shift. then Click on Troubleshoot > Advanced > Toshiba System Recovery
