✔ Best Answer
It depends on which Satellite model it is. Toshiba may not have any Windows 7 drivers for that model, and without those, devices like WiFi, sound & graphics won't work properly, if at all.

Check Tosiba's website before putting Windows 7 on it. If you had posted the exact model I could have checked it for you, but since you didn't you'll have to check it yourself:
