Did you make sure you ran Startup Repair 3 times?

window boot manager. win failed to start. a recent hw or software change may be the cause.

status: 0xc000000f

info: a required device isnt connected or cant be accessed.

not sure what this means?

Work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

If this is the original Toshiba factory install then that is the worst install of Win7 one can have in the first place, so I'd strongly consider using this opportunity to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with our help. You'll get and keep a perfect install as long as you stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial, which includes everything needed.
