The answer to my problem was in the BIOS, something Toshiba's techies did not know. I had to disable "Secure Boot" and switch from booting with "UEFI" to "CSM". Once this was done system booted from the Windows 7 DVD. It is now running on Windows 7 and I just need to find two more Win7 drivers and I'm good to go. Surprisingly the BIOS was configured for normal boot not fast. Sue T thanks for your response. I decided to go through the BIOS configuration first before altering the power settings.
