Error during recovery -- Windows installation cannot proceed

Satellite A305-S6837

 

My computer was having issue with freezing up and shutting down so decided to restore it to factory condition with the toshiba recovery disk. Things went almost exactly as they should right up until the point where in the course of recovery the computer shut down. And now my computer is stuck in this 'windows installation cannot proceed' pop up message loop. I tried selecting ok and letting it restart but it just keeps looping. Please give me some suggestion or advice on how I can solve this problem, trying to get this computer up and running to give to my mom for her birthday.

 

 

pop up message recieved: 

'The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.'

I don't think you have anything to lose by attempting the recovery again.

I have the same problem with a Satellite E305-1995.

I would love to run recovery again but there's no option for that. The laptop enters a loop rebooting into Windows installation and getting this error.

It doesn't give any other option.

 

Any ideas on how to run again the restore to factory condition at this point?

 

Thanks for your help.

Does holding '0' when you start the computer work?
