I checked the flash drive, it has 2.5 gigs on it so I guess we can assume the flash drive is OK.
There are other settings in bios about using a usb but I don't want to change them unless I get advise.

Here is how to create it from an ubuntu installation:

And here is how to do it from a windows installation:

The USB needs to be created correctly for it to boot. It sounds like you have the pc boot order correct; I think the USB is the issue
