If that does not work then do this
Click Start > Run and type diskmgmt.msc in the Open: line and click OK, now see if you hidden partion is listed there. TP

Now hit the Print Screen key on the keyboard. Open up microsoft Paint and go to EDIT and click Paste. Save this file as a JPEG file on your desktop. Upload the picture here and let me see if it is the hidden partiton. I will check back tomorrow for your post. JP

I believe, that at some point (around 2007), they stopped shipping laptops with recovery partition.
1. Click Start
2. Select All Programs
3. Select Recovery Disc Creator.
4. Within the Recovery Disc Creator select Create
5. When prompted enter the first blank DVD and select Ok
6. When prompted enter the second blank DVD and select Ok

I do not see the partition with the operating system on it. The one that shows is probably a diagnostics type partition. Most hidden partition's with operating systems on them have 3 to 5 gigs of space used and yours is only in the 300 meg range. You will probably need to order the restore cd/dvd from Toshiba.
