To enter BIOS settings on Satellite A10 press ESC button immediately after switching the notebook ON. Press it several times and follow the menu shown on the screen (lower part of the display).

When the Toshiba welcome screen is shown can you see small symbols for bootable devices under this Toshiba welcome screen? It is pretty old notebook model and I can really not remember how it looks like.

The ESC and F1 should allow you to access the BIOS.

But did you try to press the F12 button?

Pressing the F12 button would enable the boot menu on the screen.

Then you could choose the device from where you want to boot.

It should help too.
