You will have to launch the repair console and see if a repair is in order.

Since Toshiba does not make drive diagnostic software, you will have to go through them for support.

First we need to work out what brand the hard drive is, usually Toshiba doesn't always use their own brand hard drive.

Is the disc scratch or dirty? Try cleaning it and attempt to install again.

Using another drive makers diagnostic is ill advised since the software is coded to look for certain issues and report on them. The best bet is to go through Toshiba for support. As stated on their website.

Your hard drive is damaged, and can only be replaced by calling Toshiba.
