    Hi,

    As I know during a recovery procedure you laptop will restart for many times. So, don't interrupt it and wait. If it still restarts for a long time, you can restore factory settings using recovery media you have made

    Wait more for 20 -30 minutes, otherwise you have to start a new installation as there is no other way to get to your desktop. As I know, your model isn't equipped wit cd/dvdrom. Have you made a recovery usb flash drive?

    I don't think you have something serious problem... Usually, this process take pretty much time to install Windows and driver/utilities. Reda here,

    It's not good, i don't how if you have removed it while partitioning.. You can try to make a bootable usb flash drive for Windows installation. You have to get Windows copy disk, usb flash drive (not less 4 gb). How to make a usb bootable, read here:

    How you know this? Installation is finished when OS started, all applications loaded and you can see the desktop.
    > i think it has crashed
    This statement must be based on some facts. Why do you think so?
    What happen exactly when you press power button?

    hi,

    even using the recovery disks, the same issue is still there.

    process:
    1- starting windows
    2- first use
    3- welcome
    4- please wait... finishing installation....
    5- restarting... 12th time.

    please advise

    Hi johndoe7999,

    From my own experience I can say that Windows 7 installation from Toshiba recovery disk restart pretty often, as far as I know restart happens up to 15 times or more.

    So I think you have to wait a little bit longer because everything is ok. The restarts happen because a lot of drivers and tools must be installed. So donít be worry, everything is ok with your notebook!!! :)
