Did you actually transfer the .iso image to the USB drive or just transfer the files within the image? It's a subtle but important difference. I have tended to use Unetbootin to create Ubootable USB sticks but I am sure other programs work.
As mentioned in a previous post the USB stick most likely shows up as a hard drive in the boot order in BIOS which has caused me confution on the past as I've selected something like "Removable USB media" and it's not booted.
