If you have not created the BACKUP DISK, you can create by selecting [Create BACKUP DISK] in [Start] -
[Programs] - [Panasonic]. If you can not create this disk, contact Panasonic Technical Support.
The optional CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive (Confirm the latest information on optional products in catalogs, etc.) is required
for the following reinstallation procedure. Mount the CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive in the multimedia pocket. (Refer to the
operating instructions of the CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive for details.)

lation will return the computer to close to the conditions at time of purchase.
Before the reinstallation procedure, remove all peripherals (except for the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drive and the floppy
