Booting stop at Verifying DMI Pool Data


Have a problem - booting stuck on Verifying DMI Pool Data when I try to boot from USB(to install operatinng system)
Other boot options works OK - boot from HD(Windows 7 or Suse) and boot from CD or DVD.

This problem appears after I created bootable USB for Suse 11.4 with Suse Studio Image Writer(done in Windows)
Boot from this USB was succesful, but installation stuck on partitioning disk provided to install suse.
Then i abort installation, install Suse 12.1 from DVD.
After this, no boot from USB is possible, try to instal from USB Suse 11.4 again, then Fedora, Windows 8 - computer allways stuck on state described above and stay unresponsible.
No restart with Ctrl+Alt+Del, only forced restart with reset button, nothing else.

What may be the problem?
I asked Google and find some answers which provided some actions with CMOS(BIOS) but none of them is precisely to my problem.

Thanks for answers

If a cd or other hard drive works then try this. Power down system and pull ac plug. Press power button a few times and then insert usb device. Then attach ac and power up to bios settings. See the hard drive section where one might move the usb up to the top of the boot order. Then go to the boot choice and be sure that hard drive is the first boot option. Save and reboot. See what happens.
