I have problem with my USB memory ! So I am trying to make this USB memory bootable. Using unebooting, I uploaded a linux and set the booting to read from USB. but the laptop keeps giving this error : remove the disk and press any key to restart.

Do I need to change some sector in USB ? what should I do, and how can I do it under a windows machine.
