In searching around I found guidance on the P30 which was indicated as Very Similar to the P10.

Hi Thanks but the P10 Hard drive isnt there, Its hidden somewhere, nowhere on the side or back or laptop, as on many laptops

Okay, guess if I keep trying I eventually have to get it right.  LOL

This is for the P25:

A hint I see for all Toshiba Laptops is:

Remove all drives (hard drive, CD-ROM drive, DVD drive, etc.) If you cannot find the hard drive, it most likely is hidden under the keyboard or under the top cover assembly. If you cannot find securing screws for the optical drive on the bottom, they are most likely under the keyboard.

When you are looking for a part and the Best Description as to its location includes "it most likely is hidden under", Hmmmmmmmmm   Have to wonder what they were thinking when it was being designed!   LOL
