Yes. Very staightforward. Never seen it fail.

This is provided since Win7 release by MS as a convenience so the qualifying OS doesn't need to be installed first on a new, wiped or replacement HD.

Try it again. If that fails try Option Four. You have 30 days so no panic.

If you're already doing Option 4 then it is Upgrade.

Did you reset BIOS to defaults?

Could be the keys are not being pressed quickly enough before Windows begins to start.

Didn't you enter BIOS setup earlier? Are you sure which key it uses?

Does it say Toshiba or Phoenix on BIOS splash screen? For Toshiba you want to have the ESC key already pressed when powering up, then tap F1 key. For Phoenix tap f2 key vigorously the whole time its starting up.
