The Windows 10 free update expired so you can't install that without purchasing a new license key. If you want the original setup you would either need to get it from Toshiba or find a set of recovery disks off ebay or a computer shop. You can get the base Windows 8 from Microsoft and activate it using the key on your laptop if it has one. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8 Some system don't have one on the case for Windows 8, in that case, you need to contact Toshiba to see if they have a record of your key or buy a new Windows 10 license.
