Windows 7: Win 7 64-bit install on Toshiba Satellite

Win 7 64-bit install on Toshiba Satellite

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, originally installed with Vista and Win-7 capable (manufacturer site checked), but currently installed with Ubuntu. My installation gets stuck on expanding files - it goes no further than 0% and then throws up error 0x80070017. Currently I'm executing the suggestion made by Karlsnooks to clean the main partition (not the 100MB one created by the CD) with the Clean ALL command on the X: drive. Karlsnooks, I see that you have the same laptop. Any suggestions would be SO welcome! Thanks.

Hello MadWr, welcome to Seven Forums!



Here's a lot of useful information below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.


After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media, then boot the Windows 7 installation media to use Step One of this tutorial at the first link below to do a wipe (secure erase) to the entire Hard Disk Drive / Solid State Drive.

Whether you use diskpart to run either the clean all command to completely wipe a HDD / SSD or just the clean command to remove the format configuration data and don't use diskpart to create at least a single partition to do the installation to, letting the Windows installer do the format you will end up with the new Windows 7 System Reserved partition, if you want to make your own decision whether this partition is added, study these two (2) options below.
  • Then if you do not want to create the new Windows 7 "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #2 to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to do the installation to.
  • If you do want to create the "System Reserved" partition use the outline in Step Two #3 to create, format and mark Active the System Reserved partition and then create and format the 100GB partition to do the installation to.
Either way, running the "clean all" then creating and formatting the partition(s) using diskpart will get you the best possible space to do a clean install of Windows 7 to; you can always extend the Windows partition to include the remaining unallocated space on the HDD / SSD or create additional Primary partitions or an Extended partition after the installation completes if you choose.
