New Windows 8.1 Installation on Old Laptop

I want to upgrade my old Toshiba C55-B5200 to an 120GB SSD since my old harddrive on it is dying and is unbearably slow. I have prepared a USB for Windows 8.1 and have Initialized the SSD too, I have changed the boot settings on the laptops BIOS to boot from the USB first but everytime I boot into the USB, I get an error "Reboot and select proper Boot device... etc etc". Does anyone know how to fix this? The laptop already came with Windows 8.1 and I made sure I used the correct 64bit of Windows 8.1. Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this? Please help.

Check from BIOS that there isn't any secure boot options turned on. Also, why 8.1? Same key will work with Win10.

How did you prepare your Windows 8.1 USB flash drive?

Sounds to me you didn't make it bootable.
