howto boot from usb?

This is a silly question I tried googling but couldn't get it to work. I have a Dell C510/C610 Latitude laptop. I put a Fedora diskboot.img on a usb drive. Reboot. Pressed F12 for boot menu ... no usb option. I tried updating my BIOS and its fully updated to A16 still I can't boot from usb.

I went into the BIOS setup and enabled all the devices for boot (Non of which were usb but I enabled all of them) and yet none of the options in the boot menu boot usb.

How may I boot from usb to install Fedora?

Thank you.

I don't believe you can unless your bios allows booting from the usb.
