your correct, f2 brings up the bios which i have set to usb first. i tried to boot with usb immediately after using ultraISO and got boot mgr is missing so i plugged it into a different computer to make sure the files were actually on the usb. thats when i noticed it started to sync. i will attempt to download the iso again and reformat it with ultra once again.
i think i just figured it out... i had the correct boot order but booting from external device was disabled. dont i feel like a dum dum. ive got the windows 7 bluescreen now. lets see how this goes. thank you!
