seems to me you made usb key bootable sucessfully, but it failes to boot on your hardware.

usb install problem

when you downloaded the iso did you check for checksum mismatch that can most likely be the case

Using a live system, take a look into your syslinux.conf to see if it is attempting to boot from something other than /dev/sda1, which is where it should be looking for the system. If it is using UUID then that is more difficult to deal with.

b2r, please look at the distro's homepage for instructions on how to create a bootable usb medium.
every good distro should have those instructions somewhere on their web pages.

If you're using gnome3 debian has 2 different burners 1 is Brasero, for burning cd's/dvd's & the other is Disk Image Writer, for burning to usb. All you have to do is Right-click on iso & scroll to "Open With" & select the prefered app from the list.
