✔ Best Answer
You can't put Windows 7 on just any laptop you want. You first have to check the Toshiba drivers page to see if they have any Windows 7 drivers for that model (which they probably don't).

However, your problem is more serious judging by the error message. It seems your hard drive has failed so you need to replace it.

Then order a set of recovery discs (backup media) for that model through Toshiba's website. The ordering page is here:

"NO BOOTABLE DEVICE" generally means the hard drive has died or no drive is connected. Is your friend trustworthy? Does he know computers? Do you know if he opened the case for any reason? I suggest you open the case to confirm that there IS a hard drive, then check the cables to make sure they're plugged in securely.
