    I really don't understand then. All you really need is to make the folder, then mount the partition to that folder. Are you sure you haven't made a typo or something? Can you show me a screenshot?
    Edit: I won't be available for the rest of the night. I understand this has been a pain for you, but you are really my last shot besides contacting Toshiba and buying their recovery tool. I hope it works; if not, I totally understand. Thanks so much.

    Did you ever get the Windows Recovery media to boot so you could access the command prompt?

    If it is still hanging, try removing the Hard Drive to see if it will boot then. The fact it hangs at the splash screen might be it is trying to read the hard drive, or even something in the DVD. I suppose the recovery drive you made may be bad, but hopefully not.

    If all else fails, download the Windows 8.1 preview and burn that .iso (as an image) to a DVD and use that to get into the Command Prompt. The partitions you guys were talking about have very specific Type IDs and may not function if they are not correct. Just being formatted as Fat32 is not sufficient.

    Instead of wasting more time burning DVD's and preparing flash drives, I'm just going to buy the Toshiba recovery media. It's only $25. I don't see why that wouldn't boot, (especially if I try taking out the hard drive), as from a hardware perspective, everything is fine. Thanks for all your help. I suppose the message here is that some ****-ups are unfixable.
