I downloaded Ubuntu 16.04 and used Rufus to format an 8GB PNY flash drive and make it a bootable drive. I took great care in following the instructions given on the Ubuntu website.
The problem is, when I restart, no matter what I set the boot order to in the BIOS (USB HDD first, USB FDD first, hard disk, etc.) I always end up booting to Windows normally. A user on another thread recommended checking inside the hard disk option, as sometimes the USB is hidden in there, but my only options there are my hard drive and "add-in cards".
I have tried re-downloading Ubuntu, re-formatting the USB drive, and scoured my BIOS for settings that could apply.
I have spent hours trying to troubleshoot this and I have hit a wall.
