USB Boot

OPTION A
I don't remember if Toshiba's system allows this, but try modifying the start-up order in BIOS buy changing the boot device order. Set the USB as the first boot device. Restart your machine. The drive you have in the USB device will have to be bootable.

After you have access to an OS, you can run the disk repair tool to fix the corrupted drive.

OPTION B
Purchase a 2.5 drive adapter. Remove the drive from your laptop, install it in the adapter, and plug the adapter into a PC. As in option A, you can run disk repair from there.

Good luck.
