Hello my name is ***** ***** I'll be happy to assist you. When the TOSHIBA splash screen is displayed when you first turn on your computer, a boot menu prompt may be displayed for a few seconds near the bottom of the screen, indicating that a key (F2 or F12, for example) can be pressed to display a menu of boot options. Can you press F2 or F12 to get to the boot menu to have it to boot from the CD drive?
So the disc you made is apparently not a boot disc. Do you have the Windows 8 product key for your PC? You can download the software to make a bootable disc but you will need the product key to activate it. You can download it here:
That's an ISO file and it won't boot from a flash drive or a disc drive. You have to make a bootable drive out of it.
You can copy it from the flash drive to a windows 7 pc or higher then right click on the ISO file and burn it to dvd or usb and then it will be bootable.
CORRECTION --- If you downloaded the windows from the Microsoft link I posted here then the file is an executable file. You would need to place that file on a PC then double click it to execute it, then follow the prompts to make a bootable flash drive. But the file itself as downloaded is NOT bootable.
Did that work for you?
