Sounds like the boot order menu is what you have. Set the boot order menu to try other devices before the hard drive. (Example: CD/DVD drive, floppy; if present, USB devices, hard drive). You should have a default key for accessing the boot menu (usually f11 or f12). Hit this key and choose the USB option. Make sure the device you want to boot to is already connected before you turn on the laptop.

Windows will not start with a Toshiba external hard drive plugged into USB

Computer starts normally in windows with a windows that is installed on a hard disk on that copmuter. In other words - windows is installed on an internal hard disk of a computer A. If you get it out and put in a computer B it wont work.

To have the things work:
1. First should set in BIOS boot up options first boot device CD/DVD, second OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, third HDD
2. Should boot up from a CD and install windows on an external hard disk (in your case your 3TB Toshiba external HD)
3. Set in BIOS boot up options first boot device OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, second internal hard disk e.g. HDD0, HDD1

Toshiba a60 bios

Hi ahshan,
You need to enter the BIOS settings, enable USB boot, then disable all other booting devices, such as hard drive and network boot. This should force your PC to boot from your external DVD ROM.
Best wishes,

Usb boot drive using bios

You may need to enable USB boot function in the BIOS or change the boot order. In some cases the USB boot function has to be forced from boot priority in the BIOS.

Or goto the boot menu when you first turn the PC on there should be an option to use USB Boot assuming the option is enabled in the BIOS already.

Need to update bios toshiba satellite c660,using ubuntu live dvd, will not boot hard drive, all normal recovery options used up

Hi There,
There are currently no easy ways to update a bios through linux at all - including live cd's. Your best bet is to make a bios update USB stick (or floppy depending on the age of the computer)
Here's a link to those instructions:
Alternatively, speaking from my own experience with a similar situation, you can take the hard drive out, use it in place of the usb stick, boot from it, update your bios, and go from there.

No operating system found can't boot from usb there is no boot from usb option

Did you try pressing F8 key at boot up?

  • 1

    Turn on your laptop and look at the first screen that comes up as soon as it is on. This screen will tell you "Press x key to enter setup", replacing "x" with the actual BIOS access key. It's usually "Del" or "F2" on Toshiba systems.

  • 2

    Press the key firmly and quickly before the screen goes away. If you do not react quickly enough, you will miss the window of opportunity to enter the BIOS. On Toshiba systems, this window of opportunity is somewhere between two to five seconds.

  • 3

    Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."

  • 4

    As the first boot device, select "USB," or "USB HDD." If you have a "USB ZIP" option, you might be able to boot from it, so select that if you have no other choice.

  • 5

    Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.

    How did i boot my toshiba satlilit pro

    Here is a solution for your problem.Please follow the below steps to boot your laptop.
    1. First of all insert the CD from which you want to boot your laptop. 2. Shut down your system. 3. Press the power and then start it again and press the "C" key to boot from the CD.
    If this method doesn't work, you can try pressing F2 or F12 at startup and selecting the CD drive from the list of options.

    If neither method works, hold the "Esc" key while restarting the computer and press F1 when prompted to access the BIOS. From there, you can change the boot order so that the computer attempts to boot from the CD before any other devices.

    This will surely help you out.
    Thanks you. Have a good day.
