    Windows 7 is windows 7, there is no special Toshiba version, only Toshiba may have some specific drivers, but they cannot freeze nothing during installation. Only after installing You may see some yellow signs if open Device manager.
    Then simply must install missing drivers and thats all.
    If something freezes during installation, should be something wrong with installation media or or with settings, ie something with BIOS settings.

    At 8 months old, it may still be under warranty. Contact Toshiba support for an RMA.
    Personally I do not see how you can get a new Toshiba pc with Windows 7 on it 8 months ago

    Thought I found something but it doesn't apply to that model.

    @urie ... yup. I missed that.
    I only read the first post from the op...
    "hi, 8 monthes ago i bought an new toshiba pc it came with win7 pro"

    I think the op should still contact the "seller" on this laptop and they might provide a usb or a dvd disk if asked

    Yes I agree Joe but i think he will not have a disk if the laptop came with freedos, probably won't even have slic in bios. Unless bios mod or using Daz loader.

    Without knowing who the "seller" is, it could already have slic in the bios. The op needs to contact this place that sold it to him to find out what kind of support they can or will offer first.

    can it be possible to run AIDA 64 and export the results in txt file. In that way we could see the hardware configuration. in that way it will be easier to find correct drivers. When I have a doubt I use this solution in case of new installation.

    I've gone through this exact scenario before. As long as you have a serial number for the particular OS,
    you should be able to reinstall from a MS Win 7 ISO. (Look around MDL for a real download, not some home brew ISO. ;) )

    As urie suggested, go to toshiba and see if you can find the "drivers and utilities" disc and download it.

    If for some reason you can't find a serial number, then download WIndows 7 Ultimate and install the Daz loader.

    install the chipset driver first, or you might experience problems with other hardware.

    the old SLIC Toolkit app can check whether a slic table is in the toshiba bios and the slic version
