MSI BIOS won't boot live usb system

I have tried to install Arch Linux on my pc, overwriting the existing Windows 7.

After creating the bootable USB and booting it, when selecting the option to boot the system(that's how Arch works) in the bootloader, I get the basic MSI boot-screen, with everything being booted again, from the start. No system installed, no live-system booted.

I have tried different linux distributions, like Ubuntu, Kali, Mint and even CentOS. None worked at all.

I have tried different USBs, different tools to make them bootable and even different ports on the pc(the most basic thing).

All I get is a complete reboot, without the system on the usb booting up.

Any suggestions or fixes? Thank you!

How are you booting the USB drive?
Setting it as the boot drive in the bios or pressing the F11 key during motherboard POST ? I would suggest leaving the internal HDD/SSD set as the boot device and using the F11 key.
