As the title says, I created a bootable USB Pendrive with Ubuntu 12.10, following the instructions found in Ubuntu's page, in order to install it to my PC.

When I reboot the computer with the the Pendrive connected, it seems to start booting from it, showing the first line of the Linux boot sequence for a split second, and then it loads Memtest86+

After having already spent more time on this than I should, I want to ask you, why is this happening, and how can I bypass it? I just want to install Ubuntu 12.10 and be a happy man.

Thank you.
