Ok so when it's trying to boot in legacy mode it will see the hard disk as unformatted. Therefore it won't boot Windows 8 or 10. You need to get the bios back into booting uefi.
Resetting the bios should do that anyway, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get into the bios to make that change. Try doing this with the hard disk unplugged so you don't risk trashing it.
You cannot just simply removing a hard drive from one laptop to another and expect the 2nd laptop to boot your OS on the get go. It is not a plug n play type of deal. Each windows installation is linked to the laptop it was installed to. With that said, you will need to reinstall windows on the 2nd laptop in order for you to use the hard drive there. Do note that you will lose all your data, so I suggest that you make a backup for all the files that you want to keep
you talking about a reformatt or a re-install of the OS? To reformatt try a utility called FDISK do a search if you need to reinstall the OS you must have an external drive or a slim-down version of a regular OS
Damaged install CD probably. Toshiba might send you a new one if you ask nicely. Alternately, you could download a generic copy of vista from the net; install it; then go to Toshiba's site to get all the drivers for your particular laptop model of laptop. Install all the drivers and you're good to go.
