Toshiba Laptop C855D remove Win 8(54 posts)
As a matter of fact, I have set it up to boot up from the DVD rom. I can feel and hear the disc spinning in the tray but that's about it. The laptop can't read it or something and returns me back to the blue screen with the error. Now, I don't know how to attach it to another machine to boot it that way, unless you (presence1960) are talking through a network. Then again, I don't know how to do that either...
The Win8 USB should be an Installation copy IF the DVD is a Full Copy of Windows 8 and not just a Restore disc.
I'm still trying to figure out what you are attempting to do.
I thought you wanted the machine converted to Windows 7 ??
That was my original idea. I'm just trying to install either OS on it because right now, it's not working anyway. I don't care if it will be Windows 7 or 8.
I actually thought that I could install w8 and convert it to w7 later.
You will have to install the Machine Device Drivers manually.
There are many variations of the C855D model so you will need the complete model number before downloading the drivers from the support page.
Also you need to prepare the computer hard drive first using Win RE/PE and diskpart.
I thought you were going to use Windows 7 and then prepare the hard drive using Dispart first.
I guess now just try to format the complete drive during the Win8 install process.
I'm gonna try to do this tonight. I just wanted to say that, you have NO IDEA how much I appreciate your help. I've been going crazy over this problem. I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!<3
Good night for now.... Bye!! :)
