If the Toshiba came with Windows 10 Pro then you can use OEM Downgrade Rights. Essentially you can install Windows 7 without a key and then apply Toshiba OEM SLP which will work with the Toshiba's SLIC 2.1 (embedded in the UEFI BIOS).

If the Toshiba came with Windows 10 Home then you will not have a SLIC 2.1 and will have to use a separate Full Retail License.

How do I keep Win 10 from loading?

I want to get rid of Win 10 but I can't get the DVD to run so I can Install another OS.
The User Manual says that I should press the F2 key to get to the BIOS, but it seems that the
F1 - F12 are not usable either.
What am I overlooking?
How do I get to the BIOS and send Win 10 to the wastepaper basket (file 13)?

keep pressing and releasing F2 as soon as the computer starts.

There is no fix that I have found. I have a Windows 7 UEFI install that will install all the way to starting windows, then it can't start, needs repair for startup. Apparently, that is due to VGA video code not being supported by computers which originally came with Windows 10 UEFI bios. Unless you can disable it, which I can't. Trying NTLite to rebuild the install to add intel video drivers and remove microsoft vga drivers, forcing their use during the install phase. On youtube, someone was successful.

Windows 10 doesn't have any issue, just Windows 7 during the install phase. At least to my knowledge.

See the link in my post about disabling vga.

First post by Cdob explains how to do it:

The suggestion doesn't work! All the F? keys apparently have two purposes. And the selection of which of the two actions that the F? is to carryout, might be changed by another Key on the Keyboard somewhere. But I have no idea which one.

It says: Use this DVD only to reinstall the OS on a Dell PC.
The disk you have is an OEM disk. "OEM" means that Microsoft gave Dell a discount on the license fee for this copy of Windows, with the restriction that it is to be used only on the computer it was originally installed on.

You can use that disk on other identical Dell computers, because each Dell computer will have its own Windows license key stored in the BIOS of the computer.

In other words, you can't use this disk to install Windows 7 on your Toshiba laptop.

It should install fine on most machines. He would need a valid key to activate.

Any difficulty he has installing is because of the lack of csm support. He would have the same difficulty with any windows 7 installation media.

It should install on most machines. Fine is another story. Most or all of the drivers will be wrong. If he then installs the correct drivers, hopefully all will be ok.

There will be cases where it won't install. I have tried to install OEM Windows on a few brands of computer that weren't that OEM, and in one or two cases it wouldn't install, because the computer brand didn't match the OEM brand -- that was what the error message told me.

But hey, all he can do is try. It might work out just fine.
