So I know in my bios theres this settings in USB labled "Emulate device" HDD/CDROM/FDD
But im not even sure I understand what it means and I cant find it on the internet.

Do you remember the old samsung - U3 - virtual cdrom - usb disks?
Thats what I want to do can anyone make a suggestion?

You could always try unetbootin. That usually works for most iso's if i'm not wrong. As for the Emulate device option, i guess that just emulates the usb disk as a sata/scsi or cdrom device.
