Hello felycitylau, welcome to Seven Forums!



I would suggest using the Partition Wizard Boot Disk (PWBD) to wipe the Hard Disk Drive instead of the other software; then boot the XP CD to do the installation after the wipe completes and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Have a look at Option Three of this tutorial at the link below for an outline of the process.

Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD


First download the PWBD ISO file to the desktop, be sure to get the PWBD and not the installed version; scroll down to see the download link for the bootable CD ISO file at this link below.

Partition Wizard Free Bootable CD

Then use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a CD, at no greater than 4x speed with a verify; it was designed for use and works best from a CD rather that a DVD then boot the created CD to make the changes.

If your laptop wireless works with Vista then it will work with Windows 7. Give us your Toshiba model number and we will find the driver for you to load after Windows 7 reinstall.

Put the Windows 7 DVD in the drive, shut down and restart the computer, start tapping the F12 key to get a BIOS Boot Menu, select DVD drive to boot, Press Any key when prompted to boot DVD.

Follow these illustrated steps to clean install Windows 7: Clean Install Windows 7

If you receive any failures or error messages, post back the exact wording of the error message.

If the DVD does not detect a HD, reinstall the old HD to try this process. DO NOT attempt to boot into HD, you only want to boot into the DVD.

There are several models for that Toshiba. Find yours here and select from the dropdown menu Windows 7 drivers and LAN to get the download for your driver. Put it on a stick or CD and install immediately after Windows 7 install to get online to get the rest of your drivers via optional Windows Updates. Toshiba Support - Homepage
