Need a Toshiba Satellite A75-S229 recovery cd

I have a Toshiba Satellite A75-S229, and can't find my recovery cd.
Does anyone know where I can download one, or can post one for me.
Toshiba doesn't offer one on their web site.

If you don't have the recoveryCD, Toshiba will not provide one for you.
You will have to do a manual recovery using a retail XP disc. You will have to download all the necessary utilities an drivers for this laptop from toshiba.

The reason why they don't provide a recovery cd after the fact is due to the bundled software from secondary software suppliers. These software suppliers won't allow a second copy of there software to be sent out in this fashion.

I was hoping someone would offer a copy of theirs, no such luck.
Thanks anyway.

The retail xp route isn't so hard, it will install just fine on a toshiba as I've done it quite a few times. Downloading the utilities is very easy from Toshiba, if you need them. for the most part I only download the power utilities for battery saving and such.
The issue with copying and distributing here on EE is a very touchy, I doubt if anyone would openly offer to do this as it infringes all kinds of copyrights. Your best bet may be Ebay.
