So, my pc can't run the bookable flash drive when I start it.. I can't find it in the blue window that runs your dvd,networking setup,hard desk
Is there a way to make it read it in the bios menu or anything else? I really need to install a new windows

have you tried all of the usb slots on the motherboard?

if that doesn't work, leave the usb drive connected, boot into bios

You're looking for something like 'advanced bios features' or 'boot priority'

It should list 1st, 2nd, 3rd bootable device etc

Just need to make sure that the usb drive is listed first, then optical drive (if you have one), then HDD

so if you select to change boot slot 1 sata:pm-hitachi it should allow you to change it to another device

when you do that, is the usb drive listed? might be displayed as 'removable storage' or 'removable drive'
