    Hi my mates laptop a Toshiba Satellite L500-1DT won't boot into windows and I was going to reset it back to factory settings, when I set the laptop to boot from hard drive in the bios nothing happens and when windows tried to repair it I got the message ( Media test failure) but when I tried to put a fresh install of windows using my disc I got to the part where you wipe it and it showed three partitions one was SYSTEM and the other was Windows would the pre installed windows be in one of them if so how do I get to it, help, I think my mate had a muck about with it but he is not saying.
