    Did you make the change in that PDF ?

    How exactly are you trying to install 7 ?

    It might need a Sata driver, look for AHCI or Raid driver on Toshiba's website.

    Again, did you make the Bios change in the PDF file ?

    I assume you are installing 7 from a Usb stick and that is working ok ?

    Please include all the model details from the label(s) on the bottom of the laptop, I can't find anything for an L655D-013 model. I suspect you have a version of the C655D but there are several different ones.

    Going by what you have posted you have a Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5055 laptop which came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit pre-installed. Is that correct ?

    If that is your laptop you can download it's manual with this link :- http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/con...2728401/GMAD00251012_SatL640-L650_10Mar01.pdf

    The recovery procedure with DVDs is shown on PP. 71-72 but if that is giving the error try to erase the drive as shown on P.73

    Did you make the recovery disks yourself ?

    I see. Those instructions in the PDF give the Bios control of the hardware instead of letting Windows have it. See if you can find a similar option in your Bios.

    Do you have a way of partitioning and formatting the new hard drive ? Maybe connect it to another computer witha Usb caddy or lead ? I think if you can format it the recovery may work.
