Windows 7: Boot From CDROM 1. NO EMULATION SystemType 00?

Boot From CDROM 1. NO EMULATION SystemType 00?

I am trying to do a factory restore on my Toshiba laptop with Windows 7. I have 3 install discs from Toshiba. The installed CD/DVD ROM has become faulty so I purchased an external USB CD/DVD ROM in order to read the install discs properly. I have set the BIOS to boot off the USB CD/DVD ROM and I have disabled the internal CD/DVD ROM. I'm not having any luck. During the boot I get this message flashed for a second. Boot From CDROM 1. NO EMULATION SystemType 00. After that is says Windows is loading files.... Then it pops out the internal CD/DVD ROM tray (the one I disabled) and says "Please set 1st recovery media, and press Next to continue." That first recovery disc is sitting in the external USB CD/DVD ROM I have it set to boot off of. What am I doing wrong?
Any help would be much appreciated.

If it pops out the internal tray then you didn`t disable it, unplug that thing.

No factory recovery partition on this PC ?

I would have just replaced the internal optical drive, they are cheaper.

That might be what you have to do, take the external back.

Replacing an internal CD/DVD ROM on a laptop may be a bit over my head. I'm quite the novice. I would do it for a PC, but a laptop is something I don't think I want to tackle.
I just don't quite understand why it stills wants to boot off the internal drive even though I disabled it in the BIOS.
Also, correct....no factory partition.

And you`ve put the discs in the internal optical drive and what exactly happens, what`s faulty about it ?

It just won`t read any discs ?

Correct....it won't read any type of disc.....hasn't for years. It's not my only computer, so it hasn't been a huge issue.
