Its worth noting that not all motherboards support usb flash booting.

It's also worth noting that if you get these choices in your BIOS' boot order, then chances are your particular motherboard does support booting from USB. ;-)

USB diskette on key/usb hard disk
This will boot from either a USB flash drive/thumb drive/stick or an external Hard Drive.
