Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Toshiba Satellite L355D and it started showing the following yesterday. I dont have the Recovery Disk, is there anything else I can do before having to spend any money on fixing it?

It's a bootloader error since it cannot start the OS

Root Cause Found:

No OS files found on disk

Repair Action: Partition Table Repair

Result: Failed: Error code =0x490

(type) bcdedit /enum [press enter]

This has happened to me as well. However, somehow I have no restore or image for a previous time. I cannot start in safe mode, or safe mode w/command prompt. There is data I NEED off of this computer so recovery disk is not an option yet.

Best option is to have someone pull the data & then use my recovery disks?

aavelar you could hook-up your harddrive to another pc to save the data.
