That's because you need to enter the BIOS and change the boot order after the first part of the installation is over (ie, when it reboots).

Another method is to set HD first to boot, then trigger USB flash stick using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key at boot.

Or unplug the flash stick at restart.

When it shows that bar "restarting in 10 seconds", unplug the flash drive.
