You have to give us a bit more info than that. What kind of PC? Is your computer set to boot from USB? Can it boot from USB even? How did you create the bootable USB drive?

and to add
what distribution of "linux" is it ?
there are far too many to list

How did you install it to the usb ?
as in what "guide" did you fallow?
-- a link to it would help--


is your bios set to boot from a usb ?

you might need to hit < f12> to get to the boot menu
-- at the very start of the computer booting ----

i have used this page many times in the past, it is great. i have never been lucky with the GUI, but the command line seems to work very well for me.
