Toshiba Satellite L200-N400T?
there is always a dash numbered L200-nnnn
not all are the same, a fact for sure this topic
newer models had recovery partitions.
the L300 is 2008
the L1oo is 2000 made
L200 , my guess 2007 made.
the L200 came with XP or vista and w7 is reported to fail installs on this pig.
so vista or linux works only. (or freedos)
