Since the Original thread got very lengthy, I will post new problem. My Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop now shows me this: (Toshiba Recovery Wizard Recovery of Factory Default Software Preparing. Initializing the Partition, Please Wait....) There it sits. What do I need to do next? A friend took my laptop and was able to get the unit running but with Win 7 Professional 32 bit. My unit was Win 7 ( NOT) Professional 64 bit. So it was going to have a problem with the product key shortly. That is when I deleted this by doing a Startup and hitting F8. That left me with the above message.
