Morning all,

I have a Toshiba Satellite A305-S6905 that Im trying to reinstall ANY OS with... Ive tried my bootable Windows XP SP3, Win7 x32 and Win7 x64 but the same thing keeps happening, it gets like 40-60% thru the install then it just hangs and never continues. No BSOD or anything...

What are some things I could try?

I have installed the latest BIOS update to the machine, still no go though. :(

Thanks in advance for your help.
