Only use this troubleshooting guide if your USB Flash drive can not be booted by entering the boot menu on your computer by pressing the allocated key (which is clearly listed on the bottom of your screen when you turn on most computers). The most common keys for boot menu are 'F8' and 'F12'.
Troubleshooting: set your computer to boot from USB Flash Drive.
To Enter the BIOS press the 'Del' button on your keyboard or, depending on the type of bios, one of these alternatives: 'F1', 'F2', 'F8', 'F10' 'F12', 'insert' or 'tab'. Commonly, a PC will show a message like 'Press Del to enter Setup' to indicate that you need to press the 'Del' key. Some AMI BIOS require you to enable the option 'USB Keyboard Legacy support'.
For AMI BIOS (follow steps 1 or 2 depending on your BIOS type):
1. Go to 'Feature Setup'. 'Enable' these options: 'USB Function Support', 'USB Function For DOS' and 'ThumbDrive for DOS'. Go to 'Advanced Setup'. Set the '1st Boot Device' to 'USB RMD-FDD'. Reboot the PC and it now should automatically boot from the USB flash drive without you having to select it from the boot menu.
2. Go to 'USB Mass Storage Device Configuration'. Select 'Emulation Type' and set it to 'Harddisk'. Go to the 'Boot Menu' and set the '1st boot device' to 'USB-Stick'. Exit the BIOS and save the changes.
For PHOENIX/AWARD BIOS (my laptop's BIOS):
Go to 'Advanced BIOS Features'. Go to the '1st Boot device' and set it to 'USB-ZIP'. The key is 'F2' on my particular laptop.
