Anything that the reps from Acronis did that you no longer want (together with all the information on the hard drive) can be got rid off by wiping the partition information on the hard drive. You will be given just such an option when you begin to install Windows 7 by booting off your Windows 7 installation DVD. You should not get any MBR error messages if you have correctly booted off an installation DVD. The errors you are getting indicates you are still trying to boot from a hard drive (that is probably "wiped clean" or new, and does not have an operating system installed).
Your hard drive is probably dead.However there are stillhopes for hard drive datarecovery. Put the hard drive in a plastic bag to be compatible for the freezer. Freezingsometimes works to revive a dying hard drive, at least for a shorttime(Probable just about 20 minutes), but be sure that the bag is sealedtightly so that condensation and ice crystals don't form. Put it in yourfreezer for 24 hours that will do the trick. While it's still cold, plug itinto your computer.And you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And you mayact quickly,because you may only have 20 minutes to recover your data off itand after that the hard drive is completely dead. If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money andwhether they can recover data is not guaranteed. Here is a tutorial to guide you how torecover hard drive data.
Sorry but Unfortunately Hard drives (HDD) are very susceptible to physical shocks and can be damaged that way. It may be possible to take it to a repair center to see if they can salvage some of you data but their are no guarantees.

Actually, the error-message is "worse" news than just having a few bad sectors.
It indicates that the electronics on the circuit-board under the "spinning" part of the disk-drive
are not returning any information, when queried.
So, the disk-drive is "dead".
If it still is under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get a replacement disk, at minimal cost to you.
Restore disks are created to only work with the default hard drive that came with the laptop. Even if you bought an exact replacement it still wouldnt work as the restore discs looks for the unique serial number of the hard drive and therefore prevents people from using the recovery discs on other toshiba systems or non toshiba systems.
Id suggest borrowing another windows installation disc and using the key on the certificate of authencity on the bottom f the laptop to activate.You might have to ring microsoft to activate it but just explain whats happened and it should all go ok.

Sounds like the HDD has fallen victim to Malware of the destructive type. Does the drive boot at all? If not use the software that came with it or go to the website and download a copy. You will have to restructure your HDD.
