Making USB Default Boot Device on Asus P5Q-SE2 Motherboard

I just got a new hard drive after the old one failed. I have made a bootable USB Drive and put Windows 7 On there. Im looking though my Boot options and i cannot find USB in it. My motherboard is an Asus P5Q-SE2.

Is there anyway i can Install the OS from the USB as my DVD Drive is Dead.
