No CD or USB-boot on Satellite C850-Z19 - Only Win 8 boots up
I just bought a Toshiba Satellite C850 - Z19 (Windows 8 is installed).
Although I edited the BIOS for booting with CD and USB before the HD, my usual bootable Debian Lenny and Squeeze CDs (32 or 64bit version) do not boot, only Windows 8 finally does.
I tried many BIOS config, I have no more idea; .the retailer (using Ubuntu) could not help.
Is it possible?
Re: No CD or USB-boot on Satellite C850 - Z19 with Windows 8
Some new PC's have the new UEFI secure boot. You may need to supply something called a signed key. Try searching these terms and see if a solution appears.

Quite good track.
The UEFI mode was ON in the BIOS. To remove it:
Starting the PC with [F2]
Advanced / System configuration / Starting mode: CSM rather than UEFI.
Typing a password for the superuser (otherwise, anybody controls your PC by BIOS access)
[F10] to exit and save the parameters
And never, never forget the password.
