Second: "PLoP" Linux should get the trick done. I'm pretty sure you can install it and then swap the drive over and still expect it to work, just take a machine with similar architecture and you'll be good. (Haven't played with it too much.)

Ive also done similar via dos when making up a dos6.22 partition tacked onto the end of a drive with a o/s that wouldnt boot. dos 6.22 (or freedos) ain't dead, its just very very very stable...

if that doesnt work try this.. do a bit for bit copy of your old hdd if possible. put in the new hdd, make sure the machine is powered off. hold down the zero key (0). Power on the machine. This will boot you into toshibas hidden recovery partition. WOrks on newer toshiba laptops.
