Mmmm.
That part of the Windows installation does not even involve the hard drive. That part is where the files necessary to install windows are loaded into memory (I think it is memory).

Do you get to a point where it says "Starting Windows" and you get the black screen with the coalescing squares?

Is this a new, retail DVD of W7, or a disk you burned?

Yes it is.
I checked to be sure and one of our Windows gurus confirmed that only RAM is involved at this point in the process.
He says that that green progress bar appears sometimes on older systems with older hardware.

So that raises the possibility that there may be other things going on.

How much RAM is installed in the laptop?

EDIT: What is the complete model number of the toshiba satellite L350?
Two things:
  • You might want to see if you can get your hands on a retail copy of W7, or try burning a new ISO.
  • You probably should download, burn, and run Memtest: http://www.memtest.org/ if you can't get the Install Program to load.
