First these laptops are what is called "Legacy Free", meaning there is no BIOS, at all, ever, for all time, not gonna be there.
Second, the Floppy option is referring to any supported USB Floppy drive. If you have one great, if not this will be more difficult.
NOTE**** - If at any point you do not know what I'm referring to, please do not attempt this, you will likely render your HDD useless.
If you have the Floppy on USB, then you will need the XP setup on Floppy Disk and there are alot of disks, and from my own experience so far, No, a USB flash drive will not work, I even tried an emulator which formatted it as a floppy disk.
If you do not have a floppy, then you will need to remove the harddrive and connect it via an external USB drive cage to another pc, create two partitions, one for your OEM OS disc, the other for the installation. Obviously your OEM OS Disc is not all that large, only partition what it needs, and make sure you make it a bootable partition. For XP you will also need the SATA drivers for the hard drive as XP does not have them included in the setup disc. If you do not have these, you will need to find them or just stop here, because you can go no further.
This is one of the biggest drawbacks of a "Legacy Free" system, you cannot change the SATA operation in BIOS like most other pc's. The system configuration is done through a windows utility from Toshiba.

take out the battery and ac adapter for 5 minutes, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, plug back in the ac adapter and turn on, try entering the bios.
if the problem remains and since you are unable to boot from any device, you would either have to send this laptop to a repairer, or remove the hard drive from the laptop, use a adapter to connect it to a desktop machine or to another laptop and begin the windows setup on another machine, or install windows on another machine (may cause a blue screen when switched to another machine)
or make the hard drive bootable, copy windows setup files into the drive and install from the drive.
