Re-formatting a Toshiba laptop without a Recovery Disk?

    I have been given an old second-hand (Windows 95) Toshiba laptop
    (430CDS), without a recovery disk.

    I do have a regular Windows 95 CD and wonder if I make a boot disk
    with CD support for the laptop whether I could then re-install the
    operating system with the W95 CD.

    The Toshiba site has plenty of drivers available for download for this
    old laptop so I won't miss out there.

    So, will my idea of using a regular W95 CD work?

    Yes .. it did for my old Tosh, but W98SE works way better on it, especially
    if you up the stock memory too ... ;)

    Drivers are easy to get, as you say, for all standard components in the
    laptop, from Toshiba themselves .. ;)
