Have you tried to Flash the BIOS? Perhaps a flash of the bios might be able to reset it. Also, have you tried calling Toshiba support explaining the issue?

You should be able to track down your Laptop model type and download the BIOS Firmware update. I don't know about Toshiba but somethings they have you build a Boot Disk from and flash the BIOS. This is where I would start and go down this path.

Even if you can't change the boot order, you should still be able to hit an Function key to boot from either a USB drive or USB Stick. Not helping?
