Toshiba Satellite C655 Laptop cannot restore to factory settings with or without OEM Toshiba rescue disc.
 
In short, I attempted to replace bad hard drive. First, I used spotmau to partition and format the replacement drive. Then, I changes the boot settings to usb dvd. I booted to the OEM Toshiba rescue disk to reinstall windows 7, 64-bit os. I used both a LG Super multi drive to install the rescue disk, and the laptop's actual optical drive/disk tray to no avail. The first of four disks did download. The second disk of four failed to complete the process. 
 
Can't read from the source file or disk. PREINST11.SWM
TYPE: SWM FILE
SIZE: 614  MB

Then when the system rebooted to windows, the following error:
The error, F3-F200-0002 An error has occurred. Please press [OK] to turn off the computer.   
 
I reattempted the re install process three times with the same results. 
 
Does anyone know how to successfully reinstall windows 7, 64-bit under these conditions? Thanks
