Hi SIW2

looks like its stuck at the repair option.

If once its shutdown and Bios is set to boot via USB.
Inserting the USB then turning the comp on it SHOULD boot from the USB

Sounds like defective mbr on the flash drive. Maybe the partition on the flash isn't marked active.

I suggest you do that as well.

Select "Parts Manage".

Highlight your usb drive by clicking on it ( it will only show one partition on that drive).

Click "Activate"
