nbcaine 4.0 on USB drive does not boot

I have installed nbcaine 4.0 on USB Flash successfully, but it doesn't work at boot stage... Simply the process of booting flows to the next boot device without even give a message. USB boot is allowed and is recognized in the BIOS.

To create the bootable USB, I have tryed using:
unetbootin-linux-584 - no success
dd (dd if=nbcaine4.0.iso of=/dev/sdb1 bs=32K) - no success

Can anyone give me any clue of what could be happening?

Thanks in advance

Did you create the usb as a bootable drive? Try USB Image Writer. I recently had problems relating to recognising usb drives at boot time. My motherboard has a UEFI BIOS and the only way I could get it to boot from usb was to switch off, pull out the mains cable,short the two pins on the motherboard to reset the bios, and choose 'load system defaults'. Loading system defaults from the bios wasn't effective. Eventually I flashed the bios to the latest version and everything came good. Good luck.
