Hi. I need your help here. I have owned a Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5139 for more than 5 years. In the course of the ownership, I did several time to set the computer to out-of the box condition. This was easily done by using a partition on the computer's hdd. Recently, I created an reboot media (a 16GB flash drive), then I did a reboot from this created media, it was successful. Howerve it deleted my original factory image from the computer's hdd. At this time I thought of to make a safe measure. I copied my first bootable flash drive to a second 32GB flash drive. Unfortunately, I lost the first bootable media. I tried to boot my computer to the factory condition from this 2nd flash drive, but failed. Every time it brought me to the normal window. My total size on this 32GB flash drive is 9.xx Gb. I checked the main components are in an folder: image. The files are the following: exclude: type is configuration settings. 1kb PREINST.CRC: CRC File 9,401 kb PREINST.SWM: SWM File 638,792 kb ... PREINST15.SWM: SWM File 540,789 kb Is it possible to make a bootable drive from these 16 SWM files? thanks. Dan
The option sequence, Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates, gave the message: “Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer” I used Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Component Services > Services Local, and found “Windows Update” in the list displayed. In this list the properties of “Windows Update” were listed as “Started” and “Automatic (Delayed Start)”. I nevertheless restarted Win 7 but the properties of “Windows Update” were the same and there was still the same message from “Windows Update”. Any clues about what is going on would be appreciated.
