I put USB in the boot order first and I tried to select it from the boot menu, but it boots only from hdd every time. I have an USB3 stick 32 GB and created t a bootable stick with startup disk creator under Ubuntu 11.10. Does anyone out there know what's going wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated !!

Thank you all, Stefan

What do you mean? I have the usb stick sitting there. The computer can also read from it under ubuntu 11.10 but does not boot – Stefan Nov 10 '12 at 23:44
He means there may be problem booting off a USB 3 port. Since you say you are using a USB 3 stick, the implication is that you have it plugged into a USB 3 port. If so, and you have some USB 2.0 ports then try to use one of them instead. – fabricator4 Nov 11 '12 at 0:01
