    I haven't done a UEFI install in Windows 7 or 8. Not yet anyway, so I can't help you there. I'll wish you some good luck if that will help though.

    Thanks. Right I have installed ubuntu 12.10 and laptop is running perfect. So that proves the bios is stopping me installing any windows system. I have now setup vmplayer and have setup windows 8 pro on there. Will i be able to get my oem key from bios that way and could i make a recorvery disks through vmplayer running windows 8? Thanks Andrew

    As you have installed Linux, the Recovery disc would be of not use.


    You can order Toshiba Recovery disks from here:

    Hi Thanks for all the replies. I have an update:- I have managed to install windows 8 by doing 1 thing in the bios and I have tried it 4 times now.
    Secure boot:- enabled. Boot speed:- Fast. UEFI enabled. With this you CAN NOT install windows 8 on this Toshiba laptop.
    I had to disable internal pointing device to get the laptop to boot windows 8 disc and install it. The 1 problem is I don't have a working touchpad only usb mouse and if I try enable it the laptop WILL NOT boot. Confused. Any ideas. I'm using the laptop now. Thanks Andrew
    PS Is there a way that I can install touchpad drivers on install disc before it tries to boot up?

    That is a hardware problem, not a software driver problem, as windows will boot with/outwith touchpad drivers.

    Return to Retailer for Replacement or Repair.

    Ok so I solved the problem. The touchpad was not attached to motherboard correctly hence not been able to install windows 8. All sorted now. Thanks to all that helped. Andrew
