well if its like a few cd's with something like system restore and not just a xp cd then chances are it will restore everything like when you bought it automaticly. dono if Toshiba does it but i know compaq and emachines you have no control what or where to install the os or the programs :-(

Thanks for that,
i kinda got that idea when i put the disks in and it didnt give me any options regarding the drives, although it is a bit weird because the same disks did install the partition in the first place.

thanks anyway
