If Windows 8 was pre-installed then you need to set UEFI to enabled and Legacy/CSM to disable. Tapping F12 at boot should give you a boot menu. If not then F12 needs to be enabled in the UEFI settings. Also make sure USB is the first boot device.
If you still cannot get the boot menu it may be a problem with the key itself in that the Toshiba can not detect it. Also possibly using Rufus to create the bootable USB flash drive may help. If you did not get 8.1 using the Media Creation Tool then I would download it and do the option to download an iso file. Run Rufus on the desktop. Make sure you select GPT partition scheme in the dropdown box. Leave all boxes as checked. If you see FreeDos in the dropdown box then select iso image, click the icon, and browse to the iso file. Press Start.

Could you try to change a setting in the BIOS. Enter to the BIOS and change "advanced- system configuration -boot mode" to CSM. Sure, that now you have UEFI.
After this change, you could boot from USB.
( If using Rufus, create UEFI format USB)

There's a chance that "brain" is confused, then helps only removing CMOS battery for a minute.
I just noticed - you said, "I'm putting the drive in the USB 3.0 port", it might not work because it might not find the USB 3 drivers. Can you use USB 2? In case you can not, you need to install USB 3 drivers in some cases (before), but I can not tell you at the moment how it is the best to do. I remember, this problem has been.

Did I understand correctly that it's working now?

If removing the CMOS battery corrected things...it may only be temporary, since the CMOS battery may need to be replaced.

Yes, it's working correctly. Removing the CMOS battery for a minute and putting it back in seemed to solve the issue.
Now, for some reason after using my computer for a day I realized that there is no sound. I wonder why that is. I can live with no sound, I guess.
