I've tried and tried again to boot the installer off of my USB, however, it seems like Acronis True Image is preventing me from booting off the USB stick. Also, as a side note, my windows is completely gone, I can't access it at all, so I can't factory reset my laptop. Is there any way that I can boot Ubuntu off my USB, and get past the Acronis True Image so I can do so?

Assuming I found the correct Acronis (a backup tool), I don't see how/why it would be effecting your boot options, since these are motherboard-based. Can you further explain how you came to that conclusion? –  DaimyoKirby Aug 28 '13 at 17:38
