Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite L755D-S5106 stops at Windows starting bootscreen

Toshiba Satellite L755D-S5106 stops at Windows starting bootscreen

Hello all,
I hope I am not violating any rules but I just want this get fixed. I have tried everything so far what I have found on the web. The machine is running under Windows 7 64bit.
The laptop is of a friend of mine. He said that it wont boot so I thought let me check it out.

The case:
after some start up repair, it can boot normally, then sometimes it wont. I did a clean install, same problem. I checked the list disk and see that it has 2 Disks. Disk 0 and Disk 1. Disk 0 is where the partitions System Reserve, Windows and another for data. Disk 1 however, it says No media, Removable Disk.

The thing is, when you start it up it will get stuck at the Windows Starting boot screen for a good while and then restarts itself to the repair startup (Recommended) and the Start Windows Normally. Then I have to do Start up repair and sometimes after doing that it starts up normal.

What I tried is in Disk 0, I put the Windows Part Active and the System Reserve Inactive and then did the Start up Repair 3 times. After that it start up normal but the moment I Shutdown and start up again, boom. Same problem.
Then last thing I tried is to remove the startup of the USB from the boot. I disabled it from the registry. Still nothing changed, same story, stuck at windows screen.

Everytime I have to do Startup repair to let it start up.

What I think is maybe this Removable Disk is causing the loop. Or maybe I am wrong or did something NOT good.

I am sorry but I have tried to explain it. I hope it is clear enough to understand what I try to explain here.

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals,

Boot into BIOS setup, reset to defaults, save changes. If an EFI BIOS, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibility Support Module, set DVD drive first to boot, HD second. Then set SATA controller to AHCI. Save changes and Exit.

Then boot into installer DVD or flash stick burned or written using tool and latest ISO for your licensed OS version here.

At first installer screen Press Shift + F10 to open a Command Box, type:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
SELECT DISK 0 (after confirming Windows 7 target HD #)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=102400 (for 100gb partition, adjust as desired)
FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="WINDOWS 7"
ACTIVE
EXIT
EXIT

Next click Install Now, then Custom install to Clean Install Windows 7 to the partition you created. If it fails then report back at which step and the verbatim error message.

In addition read over these steps to understand the tools and methods which work best to get and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail.

After install you can adjust partition size or Create new partitions for data, etc. in Disk Mgmt.You are creating the partition here for the purpose of marking it Active which overcomes certain install failures.

Hello Greg,

I have downloaded the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I did what you told me to do but at step to format, it stays there at 0 percent completed. Its been a while now. Is that normal? .......

Oh as I write I just see it jumps to 1 percent...

Good, now waiting...

There is no percentage reading shown during Format step. You must have already clicked Next to begin installl. Did you have the correct partition highlighted where you want to install Windows 7?

Are you referring to Copying Files or Expanding Files?

Read over the steps for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
so you handle drivers and the set up correctly.

If you were formatting your hard from within Diskpart and you don't add the " quick " ( without quotes ) command depending on the size of the drive it will take a while .
