I am looking for a solution where I can encrypt my entire Laptop Hard drive and have the Keyfile on a USB drive so when the system boots, it accesses the USB for the encryption key and allows the system to boot. If the USB is not present, the system will fail to boot.

Per the documentation on keyfiles, keyfiles are currently not supported for system encryption.

Mounir posted about using Yubikey in another thread that I provided below to see if this will suit your needs.
I have just found that it works with TrueCrypt so it should work with VeraCrypt: http://www.yubico.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/TrueCrypt-v1.3.pdf
