Windows 7 32bit booting from DELL DVD onto Toshiba Satellite won't complete expanding Windows Files. Worked last week but not anymore.
Could it be that trial ran out, thus stopping the reinstallation process?
Help please!

Using Windows in violation of its license like this is against Tom's TOS and cannot be discussed.

Buy a copy from Newegg or get a legitimate 30 day trial version from Digital River and then buy a key within 30 days if the install works. If your Toshiba came with Windows 7, you can reactivate it with the key off the sticker on that computer.

I have a legitimate windows 7 32bit that I received from dell when I was using Dell laptop(although it had no license key, since it was intended on a Dell machine).
I also have a windows 7 license key from Microsoft and windows Vista license key.
Thanks for replying, but I fixed my problem by installing a fresh copy upon a half-way installation and that's it. It was so slow, but windows update did the job for me...

You can't transfer a Dell OEM Windows 7 install to another machine, that is my point, so it is not a legitimate install. Anyway, good that you solved your issue.
