I could give you a more specific reply if you left your laptop model number. But, if your laptop supports booting USB devices you will need to power down your laptop and connect your USB drive. Once you power on your laptop slowly tap the F12 key (as if you were entering the bios setup) until a menu pops up with boot options. It will be a simple text list that will show your hard drive, cdrom and your USB drive(If supported). If you do not see your USB drive in that list you can try booting off of the removable drive. If none of these options work then please post your model number and I can tell you for sure if USB booting is supported.

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.
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.
Navigate your BIOS configuration screen to the "Boot" tab. It is usually just before "Exit."
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.
Press the button for "Save and Exit" in your BIOS. The correct button is usually F10.
