maybe usb stick is hidden under another option in BIOS? sometimes it's showing under 'hd' drives.

also - please try to boot on another PC to make sure that installation was done correctly.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

To add some info...
In some BIOS you have to select booting order (eg 1-CD 2-HDD) and also you have to select inside HDD booting the order of your "Hard Drives" (there's where your flash drive could be); then you just simply put USB first and your HDD after it and that's all.
