Just for clarification, when you say you "tried restarting the system" do you mean you rebooted (restarted) the computer or you actually tried reinstalling Windows 7? From the error message you've provided, it sounds like the installation failed.

- Did you use a Toshiba provided reinstall disk or a Windows 7 installation disk?
- Do you know if your Toshiba has a hidden recovery partition that would restore your computer to factory specs?
- When you "fully recovered" your system do you know if the hard drive was formatted or not?

If you used a Windows 7 disk these tutorials may help:
